Pittsburgh Aviary

Currently: December 2022

It’s the last month of 2022! It feels like this year has flown by. December is always such a fun, busy, and special month.

I’m excited for all of the festive activities we’ll do and time we will spend with family and friends. Here’s a look at what’s current in my life this month.

This weekend has been quite fun so far. Jimmy and I ended up celebrating V-Day on Saturday.

What we did:

  • Went to Pittsburgh’s Aviary
  • Went out to lunch
  • Saw The Vow
  • Walked around the mall
  • Had dinner at my house
  • Watched Courageous at my house with my family
Sometimes I think I scare Jimmy because I just text him random things for no reason…

He’s used to it though ;). The aviary was really cool! It was my first time visiting and we saw a lot of cool birds. I almost got pooped on like six times too. Rock on!Flamingos were the theme of the day for Valentines Day. Cute.We also got to walk in a room with really loud birds flying all over the place. It was frightening and cool at the same time. We also got to see bald eagles. I never realized how big they are. I don’t have any pictures from the other parts of the day but I had a really nice time! I enjoyed The Vow but I read the book before I saw the movie and it was totally different (it’s based off of a true story!). The movie Courageous was amazing. It has some great family values in it and I definitively cried like 6x haha!

I’m so much happier this semester than I was last semester.

I felt constantly stressed and bogged down with school work from September-December. I decided to take a few easier courses this semester but I also made an important decision: I decided not to let school work rule my life or stress me out. I know that sounds dumb or simple, but for me, it has been a big (positive) change and I’m happy 🙂

Oh yeah–check out this old family picture I found!Have a great Sunday!
