Two years of love, laughter, and learning.

It was a little under two years ago, when my mom and sister packed me into a mini van and took off for the city of Pittsburgh.  I still can't believe that this was two years ago.


I joined this program, PULSE

Met these women.

And found a city that I will be able to call home forever.

Today is my last day walking into the PULSE office for work. I can't believe that the last year went so quickly, but I'm so excited for the next chapter of my life. I gave my love to The Boy in Pittsburgh and for that reason alone this city, program, and people that we've met, will always have a place in my heart. 

So here's to today... the rainy Friday that it is, the last day in the office, but just another day I get to adore this city.

Thanks Pittsburgh and PULSE for giving me two years of love, laughter and a lot of learning.

My Megan posted this on her blog this morning. 

I think she knew that I needed to read it. 

Thanks Megarah. :)

Country Roads.....


It's vacation time!  I'm thrilled to spend a few days in my mom's Laughing Place and more importantly excited to introduce one of my favorite places to my love. 

Around Easter, my sister bought us all the book, Take Me Home, Country Roads. It has lyrics to John Denver's song and illustrations to go with it.  I just read through it 3 times while I was packing.   

Country Roads... Here we come!

Everybody's Got a Laughing Place

When I was little, my mom use to sing this song. (It's from the movie Song of the South, which isn't PC anymore and I don't think you can find it anywhere... but that song will get stuck in your head if you let it.)

Everybody's got a laughing place
A laughing place to go
Take a frown, turn it upside down
And you'll find yours we know
Honey and rainbows on our way
Where everyone is worth his weight
Boy are we in luck
We're visiting a laughing place
Everybody's got a laughing place
A laughing place to go

Mom always says that her laughing place is in West Virginia. Something about the mountains, bends in the road, and the smell. It also helps that our family is in WV.  Well, this coming week, we're going to that laughing place and I cannot wait. It's the one place that I wont get cellphone reception, where I can spend my day sitting on a front porch swing with a glass of sweet tea. 

Laughing place, here I come.
