Here is where I should be inserting an embarrassing photo documenting the early days of the friendship that has come to span more than a decade. However, here is where I am going to display a rare dose of restraint, or rather, I already have posted an “embarrassing” photo documenting earlier days in our friendship. As I said then, Heather and I have veered wildly from the days that brought us together, and our veers have shaped us into very different people.
Yet, through it all, we have remained very good friends- very good friends with a one sided visiting record. Granted, I have more reasons to visit Philly than Heather has to visit Pittsburgh. My family is close to Philly. I have multiple friends there, and I am drawn to the bigger city. However, in nearly a decade of living here, I deserve at least one visit. That fated time finallllllly came in October when Heather and her friend Jess loaded a Honda with clothing, pillows, blankets, enough water to survive a very dramatic flat tire scenario [did not transpire] and God knows what else. A few cheesy pop albums later, they arrived in the Steel City.
It was time to put on my tour guide hat [sunglasses]) and see the city anew!
Ready to see and learn more about my Pittsburgh?
More to come…
