Oh, I do apologize for not posting something sooner. I have had a busy week! It all started last Friday when I went on my first ever “momcation” (those of you following me on Twitter know what I am talking about). My brother and his fiance purchased a home in the Pittsburgh, PA area, and I, along with my parents, helped him move. Road trip! This is the first road trip I have done sans husband and child. Ever. I have pretty much stuck close to home and not gone anywhere since my daughter was born.
I was very excited to visit a city I have never been to. I am so glad I had the opportunity to do it! Pittsburgh is a wonderful city, just like everyone says it is! It’s basically all hills and gorges, and it blew my mind how so many houses are built on cliffs! After the moving was done on Saturday, we woke up early Sunday morning to visit Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens. I really wanted to do this since I had learned I would be making the drive to Pittsburgh with my parents. I was NOT disappointed. It was everything I thought it would be, and more!
It took us a good two hours to stroll through the whole place and take everything in. They also had art pieces placed throughout the gardens by my most favorite glass sculptor/artist ever– Dale Chihuly. I really can’t explain how happy I was to take this trip. The next time I go will be with my family, and we will be visiting much more! Here are some photos from my trip, and tune in next time for a regularly scheduled post!
