This weekend, my little sister, C, flew all the way from California to Boston for a short weekend visit. I hadn’t seen her since Christmas, so I was so excited to spend some quality sister time. We had a jam-packed weekend of amazing food, ice cream and gorgeous spring scenery. I took her all around the city to … Continue reading Sister Time in the Springtime

We realized that we hadn’t really strolled through the city in the … Continue reading Boston Winter Strolling
With this cold Boston weather and winter storm Nika abrewin’, I am dreaming of summer…! Thought I would share our Scandanavian trip from last summer.
