So, this is my life.

And I want you to know that I am both happy and sad and I'm still trying to figure out how that could be.

through rose-colored glasses

the gritty, crime-filled streets of The City of Brotherly Love* have never looked more lovely than they do today.

some bright summer sunshine, along with a nice breeze, made it a perfect day for three friends to sit in the park with snacks and milkshakes (i only had a few sips! i swear!). reading. chatting.

i don't know how anybody finds time to work a full-time job.

*TRIVIA TIME: do you know where the name "The City of Brotherly Love" came from?

ANSWER: no, you don't. that's what William Penn called Philadelphia, because he envisioned the city as a place where people of all colors and backgrounds could live together in peace and harmony. after learning that, i Googled statistics about Philly's murder and other crime rates. i won't be sharing them in this post, as i want you to enjoy my lovely photograph above. look at the photo i took. look at it now.

good day to you.
