Hello! We’re Beth and Bill. We’re two twenty-somethings who met and fell in love in DC, but who’s lives generally have us split between DC, Pittsburgh, and the Philadelphia area. We like getting our hands dirty with DIY projects together as we slowly turn a new-ish apartment home in Pittsburgh into a space we both love. Between those projects, we’ll be sharing adventures along the way as we manage to build our life together from two different states.
Beth is a creative soul who enjoys event planning and making things happen. She’s an avid Philadelphia Flyers fan who isn’t afraid to show her Orange and Black on the streets of Pittsburgh. (I’m a GIRL who wears GLASSES. They won’t hit me, right?) She has a degree in Advertising from “that place that does the polling” and has a minor in digital design.
Top three things she loves (besides Bill): Ice cream, flowy scarves in fall, and gnocchi.
Her biggest DIY dilemma would be having too many project ideas running in her head at once and never enough time to do it all!
What impresses her about Bill is his skillful ability to drop every line from Vanilla Ice’s Ice Ice Baby.
Bill likes working with his hands after imagining ideas that probably cannot be bought in stores. He likes the outdoors, getting dirty, old-fashioned technology that still works, and sports. Especially the Pittsburgh Penguins. (I didn’t say this relationship was easy.) He’s the good kind of geek with a few degrees and is working on his PHD at Pitt.
The three things he loves (besides Beth) are Corgi puppies, mac’n'cheese (with Sriracha), and road trips.
He finds it amazing that Beth’s DIY compulsion is as great as his.
