Are you guys like me in that sometimes you just need some time away from it all and just need to squeeze in some quiet time to clear the head? I did just that the other day during my lunch hour. I hopped over to Fort Washington State Park. Sometimes I just go to sit and watch - there is a bird watching deck, trails, picnic areas and lots and lots of lush greenery (as you can see below). Other times I go to catch up on some of my magazines or newspapers.
And then there are days when I crave some vintage shopping or just a stroll around one of my favorite neighborhoods tucked into the northwest corner of Philadelphia, Chestnut Hill.
Just last week I finally found "the one"for my magazines and newspapers. Yes, this beauty was sitting all lonely on the floor of Phantastic Phinds and I knew she needed a happy home. I had seen this particular magazine rack there a few days prior and I was so glad it was still there (as I swooped it off the floor and onto the crook of my arm happy as a little lamb). I've debated about certain wooden magazine racks in the past but was never really over the moon with anything - well I am over the moon about this puppy. And wait until you see her dressed up with some of my favorite pieces of reading material.
I'm off for the day tomorrow with my little one, kicking off the long weekend early!
Have a great weekend and holy moly it's almost September.
