It had been a while since I was in Happy Valley. I’m sure things have changed since then, but it certainly didn’t feel like it. Maybe that’s the magic of the place. It still felt like home. It still felt like the first time I was at Beaver Stadium. It still felt like the first road trip to visit friends and maybe hit one or two frat parties.
And it still looked like Happy Valley in the winter. It was snowing and it was cold.
But we had Jessyca and Sam with us as our tour guides while we grabbed some engagement photos for them. What a perfect day. Ignore the chill in the air – we got to walk around campus and explore some things and get to know them better. They’re a great couple to hang out with and it turned out to be just a great day. Also, the next time you find yourself there take Jessyca’s recommendation and have a bowl of French onion soup at the The Corner Room!
