Ten Things: Summer To-Dos

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I love my picturesque hometown! 

Spring is currently in the air but for me, it's a season that usually comes and goes without much fanfare. That was certainly not the case this year. But my mind, ever focused on the past or the future, is anticipating all that Summer 2019 has in store. I'm working on being more present but for now, in no particular order, here are ten things that I am looking forward to the most...

1. The new season of The Bachelorette! What can I say, I'm a sucker for love stories.
2. And speaking of the show..."hometown dates". I am so eager to show my handsome boyfriend around my beautiful city for the first time in June!
3. Summer Concerts, The Three Rivers Arts Festival, Fairs...nothing beats live music on a beautiful Summer night.
4. Kennywood Amusement Park. I can't even recall the last time I went but I am excited to see the new attractions and make more memories. The Potato Patch has also been calling my name. Mmmm.
5. The 4th of July in New York! I have only been to The Finger Lakes once before (a few Summers ago for the MacKenzie-Childs Barn Sale and wine tasting). I am so excited to have a fun-filled, romantic weekend in the country.
6. Flea Markets. I am currently trying to get rid of a million extra things but I have been wanting to take a drive to one of the better flea markets in the area and spend a day exploring.
7. Miniature Golf and Ice Cream. A Summer tradition.
8. Catch a Drive-In Movie. I don't think I've ever gone but need to check this off my list.
9. Virginia! Looking forward to spending time with my friend with a road trip to Charlottesville. Wine trails, historic architecture, spa days and more.
10. Summer reading! I have so many books that I want to get through this season! Leisurely days by the pool with a a cold drink and a quality page-turner...

I'm living life in beautiful Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I hold a journalism degree from West Virginia University. I have worked in television news, fashion marketing, PR, and cosmetic sales. My love for writing and sharing with the world my various passions is strong. One of my many ambitions is to be published and continue creating in the fields of digital and print media, literature and film. In my free time, I enjoy listening to music, going to concerts, reading, following Pittsburgh sports and traveling as often as possible. Some of my favorite things include beauty, style, architecture, books, tarot and astrology, thrifting and my shih-tzu, Ireland. I’m engaged to the love of my lifetimes and we look forward to starting our next chapter together. If you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear from you!
