January is about the time of year that winter starts to get to me. At first it’s exciting to cozy up in sweaters and layers, and the sparkle and cheer of the holidays is lovely. By late January, however, the dreary gray and bitter cold make me feel cooped up and anxious. Fortunately for me, we recently managed to convert a short last-minute work trip into a weekend getaway in Philadelphia, and, though it was cold and gray there, too, it was a very welcome change of scenery.
We’ve visited most of the major tourist sites in years past, so it was nice to be able to slow down and enjoy leisurely meals, wander around neighborhoods, and meet up for drinks with friends. We even spent a few exciting hours wandering around the Mütter Museum, which is completely fascinating if you have the stomach for that sort of thing.
Over the next few days, I’ll be sharing a few favorites from our wanderings around Philly. Here are a my favorite photos from Center City.
