bridges and boats
waving people on the Titanic
ancestors on long journeys
mothers holding babies
babies growing into teenagers
teenagers driving in cars
car shows in Ohio
corn stalks bending in the wind
shelling peas on porches
waving from a pontoon
a calm river in the evening light
bridges and boats

Love the place you live: Pittsburgh, PA

Today’s post is inspired by Gabrielle Blair’s blog, Designmom (www.designmom.com). She is featuring a series called Love the Place you Live and has invited bloggers to contribute.

Pittsburgh is a vibrant, gorgeous city hugged tightly by the Allegheny and Monongahela rivers which join to form the mighty Ohio river. Because of this geographical position, Pittsburgh is the US city with the most bridges. There are over 90 distinct neighborhoods in and around the city limits which give it an artful, culturally diverse flavor. Pennsylvania is a beautiful state with lush greens and gentle mountains and this city is nestled within these Penn’s Woods like a shiny, bright emerald in the sun.
