Getting Festive In Philly

The Mr. and I took a day off to see the sights in Philly a few weeks ago.  We lucked out with mild weather (but not so lucky was my bad cold starting up!).
 Our first stop of the morning was Parliament Coffee .  This place was new to us and we loved the whole vibe of the place (and great coffee too!)
 Once the Christmas Village opened (Hello, Early Birds!) we explored the shops.
 You can see it was not very busy yet.
The zamboni was cleaning the ice rink at Dilworth Park.
 Our annual selfie in the winter garden.
 We headed over to Macy's for the noon light show.
 We had a great viewing spot this year!  Go on a weekday!
 After the light show we followed the signs to the Dickens Village. It was a walk through exhibit telling the story of A Christmas Carol. 
 Lunch was at Max Brenner, a place I've been wanting to try! My salad was delish!
 They are known for their chocolate creations but we didn't order any (this time!).
I need this mirror at home!

I'll be taking a blog break to spend time with the family and enjoy the rest season. I may pop back on here and there but I'll see you for sure in 2018! Thank you for sticking with me to the end of this post and being a faithful blog reader. I appreciate you all.  Wishing a peaceful and joyful holiday season!! xoPin It
