Things to See in Boston: Mount Auburn Cemetery

Things to See in Boston: Mount Auburn Cemetery

One of the most beautiful cemeteries in the Boston area is Mount Auburn Cemetery and fortunately it is not too far from where we are living. I’ve actually been twice since we’ve been here. Once was a rather foggy rainy day and the other was bright and sunny. Both times it was beautiful and fun… Continue Reading

Things to See in Boston: Longfellow House

Things to See in Boston: Longfellow House

One of the things Laura recommended we do while in Boston was visit the Longfellow house. It looked like a pretty house from the outside but I didn’t know much about it. So, I thought taking a tour would be a great idea. Turns out it was! This was one of my favorite tours that… Continue Reading

Things to See in Boston: Boston Public Garden

Things to See in Boston: Boston Public Garden

At the end of my walk down Newbury Street, I decided to walk around Boston Public Garden. This is definitely somewhere you should stop while in Boston. If you are walking along the Freedom Trail this will be part of the trail, but it is also worth going to even if you don’t. Boston Public… Continue Reading

Newbury Street Boston — Georgetown Cupcakes

Newbury Street Boston — Georgetown Cupcakes

As I mentioned yesterday, as part of my walk along Newbury Street I stopped at the new Georgetown Cupcake store per a friend’s recommendation. While their signature cupcake is Red Velvet (which is not at the top of my list of favorite cupcakes) I opted for two flavors that were more of a favorite. I… Continue Reading

Last week I decided to walk down Newbury Street in Boston. I thought it would be fun to see the shops and look in some galleries. It turns out I went a little too early for the galleries (most opened at 11 or 12) but I did get to do some shopping! I did see… Continue Reading

He’s been looking for antique razors and had a couple in mind that he wanted to purchase. One of… Continue Reading

Boston Buildings: Houses in Watertown

Boston Buildings: Houses in Watertown

One of the many benefits of not having a car and walking everywhere is you get to enjoy the scenery. My favorite thing about Boston (I’m sure I’ll say that a lot) is the architecture. The homes here especially are amazing! I love all the different colors of wood paneling and trims. Also, I’ve discovered… Continue Reading

Happy Anniversary!

Boston Buildings: St. John the Evangelist Church

Boston Buildings: St. John the Evangelist Church

While trying to find an antiques store on Mass Ave, we ran across this building, St. John the Evangelist Church. It happened to be near a bus stop we waited at for about 10 minutes so I thought I’d take some pictures. I don’t know anything about the church (I actually looked up the name… Continue Reading

Abstract Image from the Park

Abstract Image from the Park

This post is a little bit random and short, but I wanted to share these images. There is a fun park next to our house in Boston. I’ve taken Evelyn there a couple of times. One of times we went the light was shining through the playground structure and created this really cool pattern of… Continue Reading
