This isn't the first time I've had Stanley, but it is the first time I've actually shown him around. The first time he came to visit, I forgot about him, lost him, and kind of didn't really have anywhere exciting to take him. Carlsbad, NM? Sorry about it--but I just don't love you like I love the Burgh.
I do have to admit, however, that I went to TWO Penguins game (one in a SUITE!) and forgot him at home. I left him at home when I went to Primanti's with a friend too, but nevertheless! I took some good bridge and skyline pictures with our little laminated buddy.
The skyline and bridges are always breathtaking on the first look out of the tunnels, no matter how long we've lived here, and we're coming up on our 2-year anniversary next month. I love this city.
Everyone asks me how I like it here, if we'll stay, what it's like, and I always have the same answers: I hope we stay forever. I've never encountered a city that loves itself so much. And that's a good thing.
We sent the 2nd graders in San Francisco a souvenir from each of Pittsburgh's sports teams, because...What better representation to send back from the City of Champions? Right?
p.s. we are linking up at a little dash of ash again today, so head over there & check out the other instagram pics too!
