A couple of weeks ago, the TME team flew out to Philadelphia for some photoshoots and fun.  Well…not the entire team. Cam and Tiarra couldn’t make it (sob!!) but the rest of the gang was here. It’s strange to think that many of the team members have never met in real life.  We get on our zoom calls each week, we Slack each other constantly, we know (often intimate) details of each others’ lives, and we are all genuinely friends. Yet we did not realize, for example, that Julieta is, in fact, the tiniest of us all, nor did we realize that Scotti, Jess and Laura could basically all share shoes.

These are not big things. These are not really details that matter. But they’re details I can easily rattle off about all of my local friends (height, shoe size, etc.), so it was funny to realize that there were so many basic things we didn’t know. (Fun fact: the first time Cam and I met we stared at each other, dumbfounded. It was like the jolly green giant meets a garden gnome. We had NO IDEA our height difference was THAT MUCH.)

Anyway, most of our photoshoots I can’t share yet. WOMP WOMP. All in good time. But just for fun, we did a little shooting around The Rittenhouse Hotel, one of my very favorite places to stay in Philly. (Jess’ flights were delayed and delayed and delayed due to polar vortexing so she just came in at the end…but she IS in our Very Important Secret Shots*.)

*not really that important nor secret. More about togetherness you guys. TOGETHERNESS.

The Rittenhouse Hotel was the perfect place for the team to stay in Philadelphia for our togetherness visit.

Isn’t that bar killer? It’s one of my favorite places to hide when Mike and I just want to escape for a drink. Good martinis, too.
