From Pittsburgh, with Love

I'm writing to you today from Pittsburgh, with love.

After having some hiccups with our move that included lost items, late deliveries and a delayed move-in, we were so grateful to come home to cards, letters of support and messages saying that some of you were beginning to work on plans to come visit.

Thank you, all! We can't tell you how much that meant to us.

The move aside, we've really been enjoying life in this new city of ours.

The City of Bridges – as Pittsburgh is known – reminds us alot of what we loved about living in Seattle: excellent topography with beautiful hilltop and river views, friendly neighborhoods and really incredible food.

To top it all off, the city is full of a surprising amount of arts, culture and history, including our own home that was built in 1900.

Now that we've finished moving and settling into our new neighborhood, we'll be setting aside time to really explore Pittsburgh and travel the Mid-Atlantic.

Be sure to come back each week for a new blog about our travels.

 Don't forget to also follow me on Instagram for more photos of our voyage!

Burm Voyage

It's official.

Welcome to Burm Voyage!

How do you like the new name?

I first started blogging as a newlywed after we moved to the Northwest, but our lives have changed over the past three years and now we're no longer newlyweds, or living in the Northwest.

Although it was hard for me to let go of my first blog, I wanted to continue to blog somewhere that didn't tie us to a specific time or place in our lives... But, why Burm Voyage?

Well, when my husband and I were dating, I visited France, loved the culture and studied French in high-school and college. I would practice writing the language in the letters I'd write to him and he would do the same. It became a part of our history together, and that – combined with our love for travel  led us to Bon Voyage, and finally, Burm Voyage.

Since I've enjoyed blogging so much over the past two years, I also decided to move our blog from a Blogger account to:

I'll continue writing here and will use this blog to share our lives and this new voyage we're on in the Mid-Atlantic with you.
