So I'm in Philly now, hoping to see the Liberty Bell in moments of downtime.
Check out my pictures from this last week. I can't believe all the different opportunities/adventures I'm having, and I can't wait to share them with you.
Day 22: The centerpiece for my kitchen table. I'd had my eye on this cake tray and cupcake set for months before it finally went on sale.
Day 23: Surrounded by Chinese lanterns, by words, by the rain outside, I found home.
Day 24: A shot I took from the New London pier, while waiting for the Caribbean festival to start up. Side note: I'm not a fan of Caribbean soups...
Day 25: One of my neighbors and I went to the church service at The Salvation Army. I enjoyed the people there, but I found the service was too topical for my level of spirituality. I think I'll keep church shopping to find something that delves a little deeper. But I'm so glad for the Salvation Army's existence. I know it helps many people in many ways.
Day 26: Waiting for the Amtrak to whisk me away from home to Philly.
Day 27: SWIMMING! And wearing my first free AmeriCorps shirt!
I'll see you next week with further updates. Until then--and always--may peace and blessings go with you in your lives, wherever you may be.
