I could go anywhere with you And I'd probably be happy

This past weekend I went to Philadelphia and stayed in a quaint suburb called Narberth. One afternoon it snowed, and we went walking through the little downtown area to visit the cheese shop, pick up wine and have hot chocolate. It was literally 10 degrees which is too cold for my LA bones, but I must say New England PA is breathtaking when blanketed in white. Quiet streets, classic homes, mom & pop shops, barren trees. It was as if I was on the set of a Christmas movie, and I felt so compelled to wish everyone Happy Holidays on the last weekend of January. No amount of Christmas decorations in LA could ever achieve the holiday aura that a simple snow does. I don't know how anything gets done out there. If I lived in Narberth, I'd want to hang out by the fireplace all winter in a fleece onesie and open presents that I'd wrap for myself.

if it was possible to "favorite" a post, this would be top choice. definitely something missing from all that is amazing about LA
