I've been eyeing up this dress for the longest time, maybe over a year? Anyway, Mark got it for me for Christmas! It's the perfect dress for me, not only because of the print (I'm a newspaper reporter AND a cat owner) but it has a great, flattering cut, too.
In case you were wondering, these shots were taken on Mt. Washington, Pittsburgh's most popular overlook. (There are others, but this one has the easiest access.) There's really no wonder why this area has so many visitors.
It's also a spot that provides a lot of memories for me. I lived in this neighborhood in college. (although it wasn't the part with this view) Mark proposed here. We'd often come here to contemplate, calm down, or just stare with wonder. You can see for miles in each direction, and the views are incredibly picturesque. There's the skyscrapers, of course, but also, the rivers, the bridges, the lights, the look of peace of it.
The history adds depth, too. Nearby are the two remaining inclines in operation in the city, which will take you from Mt. Washington to Pittsburgh's South Side neighborhood and back. They're historic because back in the day, this is how many steel workers commuted to work. (A large steel mill used to sit at the bottom of the hill. It's now a strip mall and business area called Station Square.)
Mt. Washington is one of Pittsburgh's cheesiest places, but I love it anyway. Perhaps even more than my new favorite dress. :D
Hope you all have a great weekend!
