One of the reasons I love living in Pittsburgh is because it is such a family oriented city. In Pittsburgh fashion the Lawrenceville neighborhood is celebrating moms during Mother’s Day Weekend (May 6th – May 8th) with two great giveaways.  If you know anything about the ‘Burgh you know that over the last few years Lawrenceville has blossomed into quite the business district.  From designer couches, to organic candles, well-made shoes and cigars, you can find it all on Butler Street.  The Lawrenceville Corporation is uniting and inviting moms to peruse its many neighborhood businesses this Mother’s Day weekend.  They have even crafted a special space on their website in honor of moms (  Fifty-one businesses are highlighted there, each with their own personal take on how to celebrate mom on her special day.
