well hello there

I'm safe and sound in Philadelphia, after spending two weeks driving across the country with my sister and a friend. Here are some highlights.

The Salt Lake (Mormon) Temple, Salt Lake City, UT

Red Table Cafe, Fort Collins, CO

New Belgium Brewing Company, Fort Collins, CO
***This is the coolest place to visit, don't pass it up if you get a chance. Wind-powered, employee-owned, amazing beer, free tours***

Omaha, NE
*** This town is way cooler than you think. And we ate at Warren Buffet's favorite restaurant (apparently he always orders the 22oz. T-bone steak with double hash browns and ice cream for dessert, dang).***

City Museum, St.Louis, MO
***This is basically an art installation/playground for kids and grown-ups made out of materials from within the city limits of St. Louis, including two abandoned planes. Amazing***

Chicago, IL

The 55th Carnegie International exhibit at the Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh, PA

So now I'm back here in Phila - moving in, eating turkey leftovers, and trying to get back into the swing of things, whatever those things may be.
