Back to North AMERICA

14 Apr

I landed in the USA (USA, USA) and all-too-briefly visited Molly in LA and Ben in Berkley.

Incredible brekkie of green matcha tea, oatmeal with cinnamon, and fresh cut mangos.

 

Ben and I went for a long scooter ride down south, into the Redwood Forest, where we laughed and played outside for several days.

Absolutely incredible.  Those trees are huge!

 

I then headed to Denver, Colorado where I requested BBQ ribs (yum) and saw Patrick perform on stage with his improv class.  He’s hilarious.  It was a really fun night!  A group of us then took a road-trip to Steamboat Springs, Colorado where Patrick and I furthered friendships with the very wonderful Rachel, Abe, Nate, Alex, Dillon, Ravi, and Greg.

Everyone appreciating some very well-made hot toddies, if I do say so myself.

Great food and great people.  Thank you to everyone!!!

 

I then headed east and arrived in Ithaca just in time to see Colleen for her birthday!!!!!

Best friends forever.

 

And I arrived back in snowy Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to pick up Mouse (my adorable car) from Andrew and Brian’s. They housed her and kept her safe while I was away! #saints  We all played a rousing game of What Do You Meme? for Hannah’s birthday.

Welcome home kisses from Pearl.

 

While traveling, I noticed Pittsburgh International Airport had won airport of the year, 2017!!!!  OUR LITTLE PITTSURGH?!!!!  I won’t ask too many questions but it does seem like maybe, in March, 2017, the competition hadn’t quite shown up yet.  But, then again, it probably would have won even if they had given out the awards in December!  It’s a great airport. #PittsburghPride

I drove to Findley Lake, NY and saw my parents for a memorable pork chop dinner.  They really know how to spoil me. ❤

Green tea everything! Souvenirs from Southeast Asia.

 

I love going away because I love coming home.
Thankful for it all,
