Friday Things

Today’s pic is of Cedar Grove, a historic home in Fairmount Park Philadelphia, PA.  This was the last kid free weekend for the bf and I, so we went to Philly for a quick overnight trip.  Mostly to eat.  And we did take time to visit the Philadelphia Museum of Art.  If you haven’t been,…
