Note to Millenials: Consider Owning A Home in Pittsburgh


In a recent article, Time magazine states a Bloomberg report showing that a large number of first-time buyers are millennials making up half or more of home purchasers in U.S. cities. The same article names Pittsburgh as the fourth most millennial-friendly city in the U.S. Pittsburgh’s growth the last several years in the tech sector has played a major role. Carnegie Mellon and the University of Pittsburgh, two local universities have been providing technology talent to companies such as Google & Uber. In turn, the economic growth has been noticeable and buyers have taken notice of the affordability of home ownership in Pittsburgh. Affordability, job growth, culture, parks, a vibrant art scene, strong public schools and excellent medical care are several factors that have made Pittsburgh a top choice for millennials and first-time homebuyers.


International Day of Happiness + First Day of Spring = Great Day!

The first day of spring always makes me happy. This year, the first day of Spring also happens to be the International Day of Happiness. The perfect combination! Many of us have had brutal winters this year and in Pittsburgh, we have had way too many single digit temperatures and -0 days.  Even though we had a little blast of snow today, it’s the first day of spring which means summer is right around the corner-and THAT makes me extra happy. According to Shawn Achor, author of The Happiness Advantage, happiness leads to greater levels of success. I recently attended one of his lectures and it was fascinating to listen to the statistics from studies that he has done which illustrate how our lives improve as we become more positive. I’ve attached a couple of pictures that make me happy whenever I see them. You can bet there will be a picture of the beach included!

Have a happy first day of spring! I’d love to hear what makes you happy.

Tomorrow, November 11, is Veteran’s Day. Many restaurants & businesses throughout the country will be honoring our military by offering free meals or discounts to active or retired servicemen. Here’s the link to a list of participating establishments. Veterans will need proof of service and active military need an ID. Planned correctly, our vets can enjoy a full day of meals. One of my favorites is this Baskin Robbins camouflage ice cream, which is November’s flavor of the month.

Baskin-Robbins’ November Flavor of the Month, “First Class Camouflage,” features chocolate, salty caramel, and cake-flavored ice cream. Baskin-Robbins

Remember to thank our service men and women for all they do and for their dedication. Happy Veteran’s Day!


2014 Annual Lawrenceville Artists’ Studio Tour

10th Annual Lawrenceville Artists’ Studio Tour

The Annual Lawrenceville Artists’ Studio Tour will be celebrating its 10th year this Saturday, November 8th. Spend the day conversing with on site artists about their work and creative process. Over 30 artists will be participating so if you enjoy talking art with the artists, this is the place to be. Plus it’s free! This event is always packed and it’s fun to see the amazing work of the artists but I live there and my daughter’s an artist so I’m a bit biased. Here’s the map & link for more info.
