{off to the city we go!}

Pittsburgh was such a pleasant surprise. I arrived with no expectations and left in awe of a beautiful city brimming with a rich history and culture. The architecture and foliage were absolutely amazing. You could actually tell that fall was in full swing. My sister and I laughed, shopped, photographed, and ate our way through the city until exhaustion started setting in. We were in and out of Pittsburgh in just a little over 36 hours, so we decided to make our trip worthwhile by seeing and doing everything possible despite how tired we were. I’m glad I got to spend this weekend with her, and can't wait for our next trip together. Next city on our list is NYC!

These are only a few pictures we took while we were there. I'll definitely be posting more tomorrow after I get a good night's rest and recharge. Flying cross country really got the best of me!
