Citrone 33 and EMBRACE Pittsburgh believe you should always keep a kind and grateful thought in your back pocket. A little something to hold close for when you need a reminder of the good things in life. This belief inspired us to create The Little Black and Gold Book of Gratitude. We are personally grateful for the love and sense of belonging that Steeler Nation provides, and how we’ve united our city. We cherished watching the games with our parents and now share that same tradition with our children. In fact, our love story started when Rob’s Steelers hat caught Cindy’s eye in a crowded bar. We are proud to share this project with you and hope it adds to the connection we all have with the team and each other. Our goal is that The Little Black and Gold Book of Gratitude will remind you of life’s silver linings, even during some of your most challenging times.

Go Steelers!

– Rob and Cindy Citrone
