Halloween Parade – TONIGHT!

Bloomfield’s Halloween Parade is happening tonight at 7:30PM along Liberty Avenue between the Post Office and the Bloomfield Bridge. More information here and here.

It is a family oriented event, so expect to be overwhelmed by the cuteness of little kids in adorable costumes.

The parade is FREE and open to everyone!

I’ll see you there!

Benevenuti/Welcome

Welcome to Bloomfield, Pittsburgh’s Little Italy.  A lovely little neighborhood blooming with Italian grocery stores, nifty small businesses, hipsters, and medical personnel. We have thrift shops, restaurants, bars, hospitals, book stores, and more.

It did not take long for me to decide that Bloomfield was the right place for me to live.  It had something to do with the fact that I was moving and needed an apartment in a short amount of time… but it also felt like home as soon as we parked on our street.

I moved to Bloomfield in May of 2013 and have yet to venture out to most of the bookshops, thrift stores, coffee spots, etc. I have officially challenged myself to get out and get to know my neighborhood! This blog is a stab at introducing myself to the local happenings, as well as inviting you (dear reader) to join the fun.

[A Little About Me]

Hi! My name is Sarah. I am 24, employed part-time in retail, and currently working towards my Master of Professional Writing (MPW) degree at Chatham University. My dream is to be a writer. I don’t know what I want to write about exactly, but this degree and this blog are a great start.

I live with my bearded boyfriend and our kitten, MoMo (she is a handful and somewhat destructive, but her fluffy cuddles and adventurous spirit are more than enough to inspire perpetual love for her).

Originally from Harrisburg, I moved to Indiana, PA to pursue my B.A. degree at IUP. Since graduating, I had my heart set on Pittsburgh, and we’re so happy to have happened upon Bloomfield — our new home sweet home.
