7 Quick Takes Friday – Volume 73

7_quick_takes_sm1Please join me and other Catholic bloggers at Conversion Diary for 7 Quick Takes Friday. My 7QT will be an all photo one!

I recently returned home from a trip to New Jersey and Philadelphia to visit relatives and to embark on a sacramental pilgrimage during the Year of Faith. I was able to visit the church where I was baptized and made my First Communion as well as the church where I was confirmed. My sacramental pilgrimage will be the topic of an upcoming post.

Until then, here are some of the other sights and places I enjoyed.

We didn’t actually get to visit the art museum, but I always love being able to see it on our trip home.

I love this restaurant where we get to watch Japanese chefs stir-fry foods in front of us. Our chef was very entertaining.PHL 4

  2. Enjoyed this. I love those Japanese steakhouses where the chefs throw the knives in the air and catch them while they’re cooking.
