“There is a certain enthusiasm in liberty, that makes human nature rise above itself, in acts of bravery and heroism.” Alexander Hamilton I’ve lived in the Philadelphia area for years and don’t remember ever visiting the Liberty Bell. Today that changed. #visitphilly #philly #philadelphia #philadelphiapa #libertybell #historicphilly #historicphiladelphia #philadelphiapulse #nationalpark #nationalparks #nationalparkservice

On this day in 1776, the Second Continental Congress appointed Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, Roger Sherman, and Robert Livingston to draft a declaration of independence from Great Britain. Do any of you remember something Franklin said about Jefferson’s first draft? NO GOOGLING! It has to be something we mentioned in class! Put your guesses in the comments and a random right answer gets a book from my library!

Today marks China’s Dragon Boat Festival! 🎉During the festival, rowers compete in ornate dragon boats while crowds watch from the shore.🚣🐲 . . Many like to enjoy Zongi during the festival, which are sticky rice dumplings wrapped in bamboo or lotus leaves and filled with various toppings like sweet red bean paste, taro or pork belly and mushrooms. 😋 . .

Lovely Delancey. If only the cars weren’t there, you could pretend you were in a different century. #phillystreets #historicphiladelphia #societyhill
FACT: I struggle with endings. I don’t often finish my favorite series, because I just cannot come to terms with there never being another episode (like I still have yet to see the final episode of “House,” because I can’t accept that it’s over). Gallery delivery days are so sad, as it kind of means the end of an experience, and is a pseudo goodbye. So I was a whole hotbed of emotions as I read an email from Dr. Hahn, my thesis advisor, that stated the last three years of my life, my thesis for my Masters of Arts in Communications, has been sent to committee. The end is in sight. And as much relief that will bring, it is a little bittersweet; it has been a tremendous process, one for which I am so thankful. I try to remind myself that as one chapter ends, another begins...so I am excited to see what comes next! One thing for sure that’s coming up: An impromptu vacation to Philadelphia and Washington DC so I can defend this baby in person. That means a few more nights in this amazing @kimpton property, the Monaco. I am also excited to see what DC’s @topazhotel has to offer! I’ve been there before, but I still must ask: What is your must do on any east coast adventure?
Sorry, one more! I didn’t get to this one yesterday, but I had to see the Edgar Allan Poe site! #edgarallanpoe #historicphiladelphia #quoththeravennevermore
