how I miss Chestnut Street...

My wife and I loved living in "Center City" Philadelphia years ago. The city has come so far in the last 10 years. It's really a great place to live. Today I went back to the old neighborhood, and had lunch with Jeannine Loro Kelly. We were classmates all the way back in elementary school. Facebook is so great! Jeannine worked right around the corner from us, and we never bumped into each other. She's been with Boyds Philadelphia for 16 years. We went to Square On Square restaurant right on Chestnut Street. It was so great to catch up, and learn about each other's lives. Jeannine is so cool!

Mmmmmm...the lunch was soooo good! Om nom nom nom....

The Boyds Philadelphia store is so amazing!! I love that old Philadelphia architecture. The store is so beautiful. What a great place! I met some really cool peeps there. What a scene outside the 1st floor bathroom. LOL! They know what I mean. Thank you so much Jeannine for spending your lunch hour with me, and then the wonderful tour of Boyds. I loved it!!!

It's been a really fun day :-)

That's too funny -- you come all the way from China to Philadelphia, and then go out for Chinese food for lunch!! :-D

The ottoman in the Urbia window is great -- nice fabric and lots of storage :-)

Welcome home!!

I I miss Chinese food! You're so right about the ottoman. It's awesome! The fabric on it so great. I was standing in the front raving over it to Tamara too.
