The girls and a guy
I spent a good part of the day walking around the grounds, but felt most comfortable hanging with my friends at the Philadelphia Style Magazine tent. And why not without their invitations to their many parties and very welcoming arms I wouldn’t be where I am today. Thanks PSM, John Colabelli, Noah Stein and Sarah Schaeffer (not pictured). Guest, Lauren O’Dorisio, John Colabelli and Noah Stein.
I love this photo of Dana Spain and Michael Piszek. (I love that they’ve found each other and she’s so happy.)

Dana says mark your calendar event for the Chefs’ Dinner for Philadelphia Animal Welfare Shelter on Monday June 28th at The Union League. Also every Thursday at Meritage restaurant 10% of the dinner bill also goes to PAWS.
Thanks to Susan Scovill for this picture. (I will be buying 2 tonight). She does what I do for the Mainline. And you can buy any of the photos I have featured, or taken at the end of this week I will put all them on an online album where you can download unwater marked pictures, full size for only $5. I’ll put a link here: plus do an entry of the weeks pictures to buy.
