Philly: A Week in Life

Love Philly

Life lately has been a reassuring march towards “normal”. Remote work transitioned to hybrid in September and its been great reconnecting with colleagues. We recently had lunch at Louie Louie in University City and browsed around the store Hello World in its new location right next door to the restaurant.

Philly favorites like the Reading Terminal Market and Di Bruno Brothers are bustling with shoppers. Dillworth Park in City Hall is setting up for the Made in Philadelphia Holiday Market. Similarly, across the way at Love Park, preparations are underway for the annual Christmas Village. Autumn colors continue to serve as backdrop to city life.
