I let this slide for a few weeks, whoops! I was pretty caught up with holiday commission work and holiday plans in general. Here’s the last batch of photos I had ready to post, from early/mid November.
One weekend, Daniel and Cassie came for a visit.
Daniel has always been, and continues to be, one of the busiest people in my life. It’s hard to catch him in town, let alone find a weekend we’re both free for a visit. It was great to have them come down for a dedicated visit rather than just swing through town.
We started out with brunch at Sabrina’s and then headed down to the ICA.
We ended up walking from the ICA to Center City, stopped by Elixir and a book store, then got Yogarino, my favorite frozen yogurt.
Then we just walked all the way back home and watched a movie. It was nice to wander around and just walk with no real destination.
The following morning we went out to Chestnut Hill for brunch before heading to the Wissahickon.
The Wissahickon is a huge nature reserve just outside of Philly. You can drive there within 20 minutes. It’s one of my favorite things about Philly.
Racing up the cliff.
The following Tuesday, Dan Bress planned to come up from Baltimore, and Kate Lally randomly found herself in town too, so we all went to a fancy dinner at Vedge and caught up. It was funny to be sitting at the same table as Kate and Dan after all this time, two of the few people I still see from Baltimore every year or two. It was great catching up.
At work that week, with Malachy.
Sometimes while Leo naps I bust out my camera as a form of entertainment while Malachy and I are killing time around the house. Malachy only naps once a day but Leo naps twice, so by Leo’s second nap we’ve usually exhausted most of the entertainment within the house so I have to get creative to keep Malachy engaged.

Taking a selfie.
Leo woke up and everyone had fun with boxes.
Later that week was Mikey’s birthday. He had some friends over for hangin and pizza.
Roxana came up from DC to hang for the night, and the next morning we went to Brad and Ian’s for brunch.
A show that weekend at Great Indoors.
Mikey’s solo set-up for The Goodbye Party.
He just put out a record during my photoblogging absence. You should definitely go download it and ‘pay what you want’ (including free, but a few bucks would be cool too! he worked super hard on this record, including recording it himself and playing almost all the instruments you hear on it). Go to http://thegoodbyeparty.bandcamp.com to download/buy it! It’s a perfect winter album. I feel so lucky that my partner makes some of my favorite music.
