Thanksgiving at Hidden Villa Farm

Personal

I have no doubt that I was in good company yesterday: absolutely stuffed!

I went to Hidden Villa Farm with Coye and Julie to spend Thanksgiving with Andrew, Julia, Becca, and Lorena.

We had a fabulous evening of fantastic food, frisbeeing, farm animals, and conversation (sorry, just couldn’t keep the alliteration going).

Here’s a taste of yesterday!











With the amount of food we brought, you’d think we were feeding an army. I’ll just try to list the made-from-scratch dishes we had for seven people: brie/blue cheese and crackers, deviled eggs, spinach artichoke dip, turkey, stuffing, green bean casserole, cranberry sauce, green beans with lemon vinaigrette and parmesan breadcrumbs, sweet potato shuffle, salted baked kale, sloppy janes, cauliflower with brown butter, pears, sage, and hazelnuts, and spiced apple cider. And that was only dinner. Somehow we managed to collect 5 different desserts: apple cranberry pie, chocolate chess pie, fudge covered brownies, butternut squash pie and some delicious pumpkin pie with ginger crust and a meringue topping (that took 9 eggs and almost ruined Thanksgiving).





Hope your Thanksgiving was as tasty and delicious as mine!

Philadelphia Gay Pride Parade and Festival 2014
Yesterday marked the first Gay Pride Parade and Festival in Philadelphia since gay marriage became legal in Pennsylvania just last month.  The parade, which started in the Gayborhood and wound its way down to Penn’s Landing, drew the largest crowds yet.  There were rainbows everywhere.  The Village People headlined the show at Penn’s Landing, several couples married at Independence Hall, and there were community-based LGBTQ booths (hi HRC friends!) as far as the eye could see down by the river. Here are just a few pictures I snapped while celebrating yesterday. As much fun as it was to see the revelry, I look f ...

June Facebook Cover Images
It’s June!I apologize for being a day late but that’s because I was photographing a beautiful wedding yesterday. The couple was awesome but the weather left something to be desired. A very, very hot day in an unairconditioned church and outdoor formals meant a melting bridal party. They were absolute troopers and I feel sooo lucky for them. Some people (*cough* Andy *cough*) would not have been nearly as pleasant in that sun and heat.This leads me to my June Facebook cover images. The first is how I feel just about everyone felt these last few days. As a side note: huge ice cubes are awesome.As for my second image, I know some people ha ...
