Autumn Adventures in Philadelphia. Pt. 2

Thanksgiving is tomorrow..TOMORROW!! I'm not quite ready for this year to end, heck, I'm not ready for this little vacay to end, will time always slip by like this? Will I always feel unready to welcome a new set of 365? As much as I'm dreading the good old "one year older one year wiser", I have a feeling 2015 will be a pretty great one. 

I haven't had much time to blog, the past two weeks in New York have been a bit rough. Both the mister and I came down with a massive case of flu that knocked us horizontal for a good 4 days. It seems crazy to me Philly was over three weeks ago, we hopped back to LA for a short week for the beginning of November, then flew out to New York right after. After living out of a suitcase for almost an entire month, the homesickness has set in full force. I miss the sunny warm air, I miss my bed, I miss waking up to my aydenbutton. 

And on a side note, I'm starting the Web Development Immersive Program at General Assembly in a week! It's a 12-week of intense programming bootcamp, I've always wanted to learn coding so I'm pretty stoked! This blog will probably be a little quiet for the next three months, but bear with me, I will be back!!

No more rambling, here are some more Philly snaps.

Autumn Adventures in Philadelphia. pt. 1

Hello from Philly! It's a cold and rainy one here today, and since I'm rain-ready-footwear less, I decided to curl up in the cozy hotel room and give this blog a little update. 

 And of course, it's going to be a photo heavy one. Here's part 1.

Liberty Bell, I was at all expecting to get emotional, but being an immigrant from a country where the quest for human rights and freedom is more or less like chasing unicorns, I definitely felt the butterflies.

It's been for about a week so far, we are really enjoying the city. The food, the history, and our hotel being smack center of the shopping district :P.. But despite the power of Face-Time, I am going through a major case of AydenButton withdrawal :/
