I love your blog.. very nice colors & theme. Did you make this website yourself or did you hire someone to do it for you? Plz reply as I'm looking to construct my own blog and would like to know where u got this from. cheers

Are Hot Tubs Safe? Many hot tubs 3rd trimester people with anxiety and phobias have found that hot tubs have the combined effect of being very good for rejuvenating and relaxing one's self.

Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You clearly know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read? - VISIT X

My husband, two year old and I had to drive from Minnesota to Michigan, from Michigan to Florida, and from Florida back to Minnesota in 10 days time recently.
I learned my husband is completely ill equipped with basic "Earth Science" knowledge. He's very intelligent and accomplished academically but you sure learn a lot when you travel endless hours with your spouse - even if you've been together for a decade...
Here's a few examples of things he 'argued,' and to which I just rolled my eyes behind my over-sized sunglasses:
"The sun can still be up on the other side of a hill/mountain" [ANY mountain]
"The miles [from point a to point b] are LONGER if the road is curvy."
"You should fill up [gas] often so you get better gas mileage." (I know your car gets better mileage if your tank is more than 1/4 full, but he filled up every 2 hours or so...)

& my favorite:
"You save money on hotels if you get [to the final destination] fast."
[Even if the hotel rooms are of equal cost & the NUMBER of nights you must sleep at a hotel are the same...]

Mmmmmmm Philly
Roasted pork rabe, Tastycakes & Monk's Cafe

Good luck and gentle landing!

Whoa! That is a big move. I think we all do what we have to do. What worked then, may not now. It's how I found myself in Colorado. Good luck!

I just visited Philly again for the first time in a few years and found it quite lovely. I hope it works well for all of you!

Best wishes for your move north! I hope it's all you want it to be and more.

I grew up in NJ, worked in NYC, and then married and moved to PA. (Lehigh Valley, jut an hour outside of Philly, 2 hours to NYC.) The best of both worlds. Welcome back to PA. It's super hot here this week, but the humidity should drop on Sunday. Best of luck with the big move!

We left Philly 3 years ago and dream of going back almost every day. Good luck with the move!

Grew up outside of Philly. Good times. Congrats and safe travels.

Wow...were you able to sell the house here? Hope so...real estate seems to have picked up around Atlanta in the past year quite a bit.

You'll be missed!

I moved to Philly during a super hot and humid July back in the late '80s. You have my sympathies. And my envy. We have no family who can get to us in less than 2 planes. The kids see their grandmothers every 1-2 years. Our anniversary trip to Italy, a year in the making, got canceled because my BIL was ill and my sister couldn't leave to come take care of my kids. I hope this is a great move for you and your family. Philly, on your terms, will be night and day from the last time.

I'm happy for you, Kristen! Is it possible that I remember your move to Atlanta and our blog conversations about Philly? Time flies...and not. Safe travels.

we love (and live in) Philly! Welcome back! Moving sucks though, we'll be thinking of you!

We did the same thing. We moved south before we had kids for 4 6 years and then once the first one was born we loaded up the truck, took a pay cut and moved back up north. All of our family is in the Midwest and I needed my kids to know their grandparents and cousins, aunts and uncles. I never had that. NOW, after being 2 hours away from every one for the first 6 years, we live in the same city as all of my brothers and my in laws.I have built in baby sitters..overnight places to send my children in times of desperation and my brothers just a few blocks away to come over for barbeques and have coffee. My sisters and parents are still 2 hours away but having everyone close is AMAZING. Enjoy it. It means the world of difference when you have little ones.

Good luck! We'll miss you here.
