We just got back from the west coast on Friday night and are still a little jet lagged, so yesterday we spent the day outside walking and enjoying the New England spring! Since we spent the week in the city, I remembered this sweet little board book I bought for Luke when he was a little babe, called The Little House by Virginia Lee Burton. You might recognize the cover because…

she also wrote Mike Mulligan and his Steam Shovel. Remember that book?! Anyways, The Little House, is about a sweet little cottage that goes from living in the beautiful country, to having a city built around it, and then back to the country. I love the baby board version because it had Wesleigh interested and it started a nice family discussion about what we love about the city, and what we love about our little town. We take our quiet little town for granted this time of year because there isn’t a ton to do outside the house, but it’s a sweet little town we feel blessed to be a part of.

Do you talk to your kids about city/country life? Would love to know about it below!

This past weekend Wesleigh and I drove down to Philadelphia to co-host the kick off breakfast to the Sweet Paul Magazine, Makerie workshop (more pics to come!).  Thank goodness our friends Rebecca, and Kelly came with us to fully dive into this amazing food scene that I had no idea was present in Philly!  Also, thanks to the delicious recommendations from my college friend Kelly, from Kelly Bakes who lives in the city, we did pretty well in the food department!

I highly recommend going to the Reading Terminal Market! There are a TON of things to do there including EAT! We got delicious crepes and amazing roasted coffee from Old City Coffee. There is also a fabulous little cookbook shop around the corner, and the most quaint flower stand.

For dinner on the first night we were there, we headed a few blocks from our hotel to V Street, a vegetarian joint with a super chic atmosphere. We had the most scrumptious vegetarian meal I have had in a long time. They serve small plates so you can try almost everything on the menu. My favorites are the Piri Piri tofu, which is a spicy and perfectly cooked tofu dish, and the Cauliflower Shawrarma, which is a delicious flat bread with hummus, and cucumber.

I loved Parc Bistro on the second night, for an amazing French meal (see radishes, sea salt and butter above!).  Wesleigh and I shared the fries and they were out of this word!

This is definitely not the last time we will visit Philly! Hopefully we can come back and bring the boys with us. Have you been lately and have any more recommendations? Or do you live there and know some hidden gems? I would love to know about them!
