dear Pittsburgh

here we are. in pittsburgh. i love my dishwasher.
i love my central air. i love my ward.

i am adjusting to this city day by day.
we have met some really great people out here
and i can't wait to get to know them better.

there are buildings everywhere here and the houses are all built SO close together.
i kind of feel like i have lost a large amount of privacy.
today tannon and i went to a park called Frick Park and it was heavenly.
this park actually felt like we were in the mountains and it was SO nice to escape all of the craziness and enjoy nature.

sorry i don't have more pictures. i will take some of our house soon. stay tuned...

now we're off to Washington D.C. to visit ryan & maren!
i love that we're now in the same time zone...

That is the best thing about living on the East Coast- so many trees, you can trick yourself into thinking you're in the mountains. You'll have to go up to Palmyra- just don't go during the Hill Cumorah Pageant. Trust me. Good luck with the adjustment.

Finally an update! I've been dying over here! It makes me so happy that you guys found a park you love and are adjusting well. I can't believe you're so close to D.C., that's really cool! I hope you had a great time visiting. Definitely post more pictures - I want to get to know your new town as if I were living there too!

Miss you guys- tell Tannon I said hi!
