After 29 years, my parents finally moved back to Pittsburgh this spring and it couldn’t have come at a better time. I think I have spent more time there in the last month than I have in the last few years combined! While it feels a little weird not to have a “home” in Virginia anymore (and makes for a confusing answer to the “Are you headed home?” question on the airplane!), I have to say I love having my parents in Pittsburgh.
My cousin Krystal got married over Labor Day weekend so the first trip was for her bridal shower and bachelorette party and the second trip, just a few weeks later, was for her wedding. I extended both trips to spend some time with my family and get to actually do some of the our favorite Pittsburgh things we usually don’t have time for.
Tropical Storm Hermine looked like it might keep Rob from flying in but he made it just in time for the reception. We squeezed as much as possible into that weekend – celebrating the wedding with my family, going to a Pirates game, riding all of our old favorite rides at Kennywood, and of course eating tons of delicious food and pierogies at every meal! 😉
