Things to See in Boston — Head of the Charles

My wonderful friend who lives in the Boston area invited Kevin and me to go to the Head of the Charles with her and her husband. Not knowing anything about it we agreed to go :). Turns out it was amazing! (not that I didn’t think it would be… we just didn’t know what it… Continue Reading

Things to See in Boston — Gore Place

On Columbus Day Kevin didn’t have to go to school so we decided to go on an outing together. We decided to visit Gore Place. Gore Place is the house and estate of one of the previous governors of Massachusetts. The estate is about 20 acres and most of it is open space or trees. It… Continue Reading

Cass Flower Shop — Watertown, MA

Cass Flower Shop — Watertown, MA

On Mount Auburn Street in Watertown is this cute little store, Cass Flower Shop and Design School. Although I had taken the bus past this store several times (on my way to and from Mount Auburn Cemetery) I hadn’t noticed it. Jared pointed it out to me once while we were driving and I decided… Continue Reading

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

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

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

Boston Buildings: Newbury Street

Boston Buildings: Newbury Street

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

About a week and a half ago we went to the Brimfield Antique Show which is one of the biggest antiques shows on the east coast. Kevin has recently become interested in the art of shaving. 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
