this past weekend was spent in philadelphia for the wedding of my college roommate. the wedding was amazing - beautiful day, delicious food, and lots of dancing. in addition to being able to celebrate with her and the rest of my friends from college, i was also able to spend time with my childhood friend who now lives in philly, along with friends from grad school who recently moved there. my meals outside of the wedding were nothing short of fabulous, and i can recommend mercato for dinner (especially their short rib gnocchi) along with honey's for brunch (their bacon was amazing along with their maple grits). i felt so lucky to have a weekend filled with so many good friends from the different parts of my life - a reminder of how much i've been given and how much i have. i'm looking forward to going back to philadelphia and doing it all over again sooner rather than later.
