PhillyChit Chatter: News about Notables and Neighbors
Can you believe it’s the middle of October. We were all in shock when the summer was over, but not it’s nearly Halloween and Christmas decorations. Hope you’ll get out today and enjoy it, leaf peeping should be on your schedule the next couple weeks. I bet a lot of you will be taking your holiday cards just about now. Curated and original chit chat from around town…. I am about a week behind publishing the “news” but I think it’s still relevant and heartwarming…
These two marriage proposals make me smile…..
