Meeting Trees: A Photo Post

Guys, I can't even begin to tell you how awesome it was to meet Trees this past weekend! I wish I'd had more time with her, but we jammed a ton of stuff into the four little days she was here. I hope she had an awesome time, I know I did! Hopefully one day I'll be able to visit her in her native land (because it sounds freaking awesome). Here are some pics from our weekend together.

I took her to see THE BELL. It really is smaller in person.
Took her to see some old dude's head.
This guy was important or something.
We took a TON of selfies. ;-)
At the Magic Gardens.

I took Trees to Eastern State Penitentiary. It was awesome!

Al Capone's cell at Eastern State Penn.
Rodin Museum selfies.

You can tell Eastern State Penn was my favorite from all the photos.
Rodin Museum.

I loved everything about this visit, and I'm so glad she made time to stop by Philadelphia. I can't say enough how much I love this city, and I was really thrilled  to show it off a little. Here are some of my favorite parts of our visit:

1. Philadelphia Magic Gardens - I just want to live there.
2. Eastern State Penn - I'd never been there, and it's beautifully bleak and I think my new favorite thing.
3. Tree's reaction on seeing THE BELL (I warned you it was smaller than you thought!).
4. Shopping with Trees.
5. The Art Star Craft Bazaar.
6. The fact that we had some quiet nights in- I get really tired easily and it was really nice to just chill out with my buddy.
7. One of the first things Trees said was it was nice to see my clothes in the flesh. :-) SHE NOTICED! (I was wearing a Lisette.)

It's also so cool to see someone you've known online but have never met. So whose next? ;-)


  1. YAH!! It was super fun to meet up with you and see your city! I hope you can visit me in Wellington sometime and also lets do ALL THE SWAPS once I return home:)

  2. I'm glad you had such a fun visit with her! I'd love to come to PA someday. Must win lottery, lol.

  3. You look so happy! I'm glad. Spending time with good friends can do that. And your phrase "beautifully bleak" intrigues me.

  4. How how coool! It looks like you showed her an awesome time around your town. I know I'm crossing my fingers to meet with Lynne again. She is a wild woman of energy. I never met someone who could outshop me! Blogger meet-ups are always so fun to read about.

  5. Great Photos. I do want to visit Eastern State someday.


  6. Looks like you gals had loads of fun!

    (I love the captions on your photos here. Made me laugh so hard!)

    And the Magic Gardens look like a 'Meg Place' if I ever did see one! Beautiful and eclectic!
