Three Years…

It has been way too long. Almost three years since my last post on this blog. There is so much that has happened since the Fall of 2014. Here is a quick recap:

  • Late Fall 2014 – Family moved back to Delaware from Pittsburgh
  • Summer 2015 – Interned with CPA firm and got offered full-time job for after graduation
  • Fall 2015 – Spring 2016 – Wrote my senior theses and finished my last year of college
  • May 2016 – Received my Bachelors degree in accounting and married my beautiful wife.
  • Summer 2016 – Worked for a manufacturing company (potato chips!)
  • Fall 2016 – Present – Working for that CPA firm and enjoying Roanoke with my wife

That was a pretty high level review, but thought I should let everyone know what has happened since my last post.

So, until the next time I post (most likely another “iPhone Photo of the Week” post), here are some pictures to hold you over.

Also, I have started another blog. It is titled “An Accountant’s Life,” but is not limited to my experience as a public accountant (not that exciting), but also my takes on current events and things that I care about. So if you would like to take a look at my content over there, that would be cool! Otherwise, stay tuned for more “Macro Masterpieces.”


Spring Break 2014…a look back

Okay, it has been way too long since Spring Break, but at least I am finally getting around to writing a post about it!

Ashley and I took a train to Washington D.C. and my brother picked us up and drove us to Pittsburgh! Going north is not exactly the ideal thing to do during Spring Break, but Ashley and I both like Pittsburgh so braving the cold was worth it! I’m actually tempted to just post links to Ashley’s post(s) about Spring Break, but I feel like I should tell it from my own perspective.

We arrived in Pittsburgh Saturday Evening and just relaxed after the long day of traveling. On Sunday, we went to church with my family and then to lunch at The Grandview Saloon on Mount Washington. Mount Washington has a beautiful view of the Pittsburgh skyline and the restaurant was on the hillside with large glass windows to give a grand view of Pittsburgh. Ashley and I brought our camera of course and I actually used my Nikon Coolpix L100 for the first time this year. In the gallery later, refer to the metadata to see which pictures were taken with the Coolpix and which were taken with the D3200. So while we waited for our food I messed around with the camera(s).

After lunch, we headed over to the top of the Duquesne Incline and took pictures from the observation deck.
