Hello there Sean still remembers when Jamie transferred into the sixth-grade class at Nazareth Academy Grade School in Northeast Philadelphia in 1997. With just 27 students, a new girl - especially a cute one - made an impression. Back then, Sean was quiet and shy, Jamie said. They hardly talked at first, but she suspected he had a crush on her. He did, but never acted on it. With so few classmates, "Everyone was friends, and we all hung out together," Sean remembered. After eighth-grade graduation, Jamie, who grew up in Southampton and Horsham, continued at Nazareth Academy High School, and Sean, who grew up in the Northeast, went to Holy Ghost Prep.

Hello there They met at a now-defunct bar during Philadelphia's May 2012 Outfest. Cara couldn't believe how loud Val was. Why did she have to be the center of attention? "I thought she was a jerk.

There have been other big plans for this ground. It was shopped as a nuclear power plant site, and for an Intel computer-chip factory. But "New Urbanist" communities, with curbside stores, offices, and charter schools, are what the ground's owner, the $125 million-asset Welfare Foundation , decided will pay best, pending final approvals from the county council.
