from my instagram
We spent less than a handful of days in Boston, which may explain why I’ve only got 6 pictures to show for it. But in truth, we were too busy having fun to document more than what you see above. I know that in the blogging world, if there’s not a picture, it didn’t happen, but I can’t make myself wish I had taken more. Sometimes you’ve got to stop recording the moment and just be in the moment, you know? So a quick run-down of what I did manage to snap:
one |on the way to meeting friends in Harvard Square, I took a quick turn around Anthropologie and found these coupes. so pretty. after trying to decide if they could possibly make it back to Chicago without breaking, I took a peek at the price… and walked away. at $20 a pop, I’m going to mull over these a little longer. (am I the only one who goes to Anthropologie not for the clothes but for housewares/decor?)
two | my shopping haul from the trip, all courtesy of the Davis Square CVS. sometimes all you need is a little drugstore spree. more to come on this pile of goodies.
three |we had drinks and food at Charlie’s Kitchen with friends to celebrate James’ birthday and watch the Red Sox. I went with the calamari. so much good salty seafood goodness for only $7. if only the night hadn’t ended with an obstruction call…but they won in the end, so it wasn’t so bad after all.
four |I drank so many bottles of this. what can I say? fall is the perfect time for hard cider.
five | lobster rolls and clam chowder. I get this every time I visit.
six |chicken milanese torta from the painted burro. crispy bread, tender chicken, garlic mayo. amazing.
I have to say, fall in New England is pretty amazing. This was my first time, and I was thrilled to see so many colorful leaves. It was also a first for me to be sitting in a bar with friends rooting for a team in the World Series. As a Cubs fan, I haven’t ever been able to do that with friends here in Chicago, so it was really nice to be in the middle of it all.
We’re already scouting tickets for a trip around Christmastime. Let’s see if I take more pictures that time around.
