On Wednesday, I spent the day in Philadelphia with two of my best friends from college, Turner and Kris!
The three of us have had these fun Philly day dates going on for a few years now (usually one in summer and one at Christmastime) and I love them! Anytime Kris is back in the Philadelphia area visiting family (she currently lives in Paris) we pick a day for me to take the train up and the three of us spend the day playing. The train is so easy and I can work on the way there and back which helps with not getting too behind!
We usually spend the day eating good food, walking around, and doing a little shopping. The food scene in Philly is awesome so it’s always fun to see which hip new places Turner takes us to. This time we started our adventure with lunch at the Hungry Pigeon. I had the chopped salad (so good – lots of veggies, potatoes, and lentils) and a pickled veggie plate – plus a glass of rose! #5oclocksomewhere
I was still a little hungry because the salad was smaller than expected so I snagged a bran muffin to snack on too – it was delish!
We spent the afternoon strolling around the city and doing a little shopping before ending up at Spruce Street Harbor Park, a really cool area of the waterfront with pop up food trucks and hang out areas for summer. Philly is such a neat city – they do a great job with making the waterfront area seasonal and fun! At Christmastime they have festive holiday markets near this area and a big outdoor ice skating rink.
