The great city of Pittsburgh

I arrived in Pittsburgh, PA yesterday to stay with Hugh and his parents for two weeks. Traveling is always an interesting experience, and other than 1 delayed bag and some confusion in the Denver airport, all went smoothly. I was thankful to have over two hours of reading time while on the plane! I am almost done with my book, Three Cups of Tea, about a man building schools in Pakistan.
Last night I watched the Penguins win game 6 of the Stanley Cup playoffs from the comforts of the Gallaghers lovely home. I wore my new Penguins shirt in support, and I am excited to have the opportunity to wear it again on Friday. Possibly in Detroit at game 7!
Pittsburgh is really beautiful...having lived in Tucson and Denver, the lush green hills are a novelty for my desert accustomed eyes.

Happy Birthday, Mason Joseph!

It's hard to believe that it's been one year since Tracy and Justin welcomed Mason Joseph Huff into their family. I absolutely adore my nephew and I'm glad I was able to be there for his birth day and his first birthday.
