I always say autumn is my hands down favorite season but I forget every year how much I love summertime!
So far, I've been enjoying a slew of Pittsburgh's free festivals and concerts (Three Rivers Arts Festival at downtown: Ingrid Michaelson (my favorite song is The Hat ), Slew of indie rock bands on Schenley Plaza, and Jam on Walnut listening to a band called Bon Journey (they play Bon Jovie and Journey songs haha, get it?)).

Good friends at Schenley Plaza
Schenley Plaza concert, check out that weird kid crawling...
I'm also really inspired to cook more interesting things with all the awesome fresh produce that is around! I made strawberry shortcake from scratch last week and made a Sicilian dish called caponata (eggplant and olive dish, recipe here) from things I had gotten either at our local grocery store or when I made a trip to the farmer's market in the Strip district. At the farmer's market I also got this killer bread called Fire Loaf that was literally 2 feet in diameter and this awesome charcoal black color (I split the loaf with a friend, but it's still too much bread so I'm thinking about bread pudding, yum).
More than anything I'm just happy to see the sunshine when I step out of clinic around 5pm everyday. Apparently Pittsburgh only has 100 days of sunshine a year? I find that hard to believe, but I'm going to soak up the sun while I can with the awesome company that is my friends. :)
