I absolutely LOVE my city! Never in a million yrs would I imagine that I would end up here but am so grateful that I can call this city home. My husband went to undergrad here yrs ago (before we met). After graduating from med school and landing a residency/fellowship position at Harvard Medical, he moved back here. I followed shortly after.
Every city that I’ve lived in, all had that cookie cutter feel. Everything looks the same everywhere. I’ve always wanted to live in a city that feels unique, offers stylish cafes at every corner, boasts architectural charm & character, and walking anywhere/everywhere was part of the culture. Wasn’t sure if this imaginary city of mine existed.
And then Boston found me. I’ve never felt so connected to a place like I do here. There is always something to do at any given time and Christmas actually feels like Christmas! Imagine Christmas in Miami!
So this weekend, while the hubs was away at a conference, Zoey and I took the T into the city. Just after two short stops, we were dropped off in the heart of downtown crossing. Ah- the luxury of city life and living in Boston!
Mommy + me strolled through the Boston commons (founded in 1643, America’s oldest park), went shopping (bought Z the CUTEST pieces EVER!), and took a break to watch the pigeons.
Here are some snaps from my phone:
And here’s an instagram pic of the city on our way back from the commons. Home is where the heart is and my heart belongs here (w/ the husband + Z).
PS- Boston in a way reminds me of Paris. I LOVE Paris to death.
