A cat hiding out in the heated mansion at Longwood Gardens. This little guy was friendly, walking up to visitors and even sitting on some lady’s lap when she sat down on a nearby bench.

The next few pictures will be featuring Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania. This is the third time I have made it out there for their Christmas extravaganza, and it is well worth it.

Travel Guide PA: A Whirlwind Two Days

“Like horseshit at a racetrack” you could say of us on this two and a half day getaway to my beloved Lancaster. And that’s exactly what it was: a getaway. I can hear the sirens now. After all, in times of stress, we find comfort in familiarity. I was not even concerned with blogging or…
