My Love Note: Where do I start? Perhaps with my mom, who was born and raised in Millville, N.J., and went to Temple years ago, later moving to New York to study opera. Fast forward to August 26th, 2010. I heard about the Smooth Jazz Summer Nights at Penn’s Landing. Boney James was playing. I planned a surprise trip for my wife and I. Little did I know this would be the trip to end all trips…

When my Nana lived in Millville, the closest store up the block was Wawa, so when we stayed at the Hyatt at Penn’s Landing, we looked up the nearest Wawa, which led us to the Headhouse District. Over the weekend, we had a chance to walk the city, from the Delaware to the Schuylkill Rivers, and fell in love with Philly — the sites, the sounds, the people. We now find all sorts of reasons to come back — the Party on The Parkway in 2011, and last year for the opening of Sister Cities Park. It’s the funniest thing, but when we’re in Philly it feels like home. No longer content with visiting, we want to BE here. Living, contributing, giving back to a city that has so much to give. To think, all it took was a concert…
