a day in boston with mom.

Friday, October 12, 2012

so often when my  mom's here, it's for a specific occasion.  thanksgiving, christmas, a birthday.  time to kill is scarce whether we're shopping for a meal, cooking said meal, meeting up with people... we don't get a chance to venture around the city much.  we made use of the fact that this trip was just a 'fun trip' if you will so we spent some time in boston.  not long enough, but time nevertheless.  

i know it's nothing new, but i just love boston.  do you love boston?  you should.  and if you've never been, you just need to come.

what i'm wearing: blazer (sure to become a staple around here) // cowl

    have never been to boston. have only been on the east coast once and that was to nyc just last spring. for some reason i always go west. and those states are so darn big. you can travel thru like 7 of them and drive for a week!
    someday east coast, someday.

  13. I was a rower in and always wanted to race in the Head of the Charles. My high school team went the year after I graduated, and so did my collegiate team. If only my parents had waited a couple of months to get preggers. I would have 2 Boston races under my belt! That's so nice y'all got a day to just BE with each other. No plans or holidays!

  14. May I ask which cowl? Is it the Clermont? I love how it's a bit looser than some of the ones I've seen, and so cozy for fall/winter. I've been a reader for awhile but have never commented, but I live in Somerville and work in Boston and so I'm glad you are showing some love for our fair city. It's some of the best New England has to offer for sure. Also, Parker is such a cutie!

  16. What a lil doll face parker is!!! Where do you shop for his clothes? We just found out we are having a little boy and I have a strong dislike for shirts with cartoons on them or witty sayings haha, I am more of a solid color or pattern type girl esp when it comes to boy clothing, and I love how you dress parker that is they style I like.

  22. Hi Bridget,

    I just saw that my favorite photographers Blue Lily are looking for a woman 25-35 that lives in the Boston area for a modelling shoot. I think it's for organic baby food. I instantly thought of you!

    Love your blog!!

  24. LOVE boston :) My husband and I lived in the Back Bay and Jamaica Plain... and now we are in Chicago, which is great, but doesn't have the "New England Charm" if you know what I mean. He's applying to a teaching job at Berklee right now, his alma mater, and if he gets it, we will be back in a hearbeat! *fingers crossed*
    Parker looks like such the little Urban Explorer in these pics, and time with Mom is definitely the BEST. Mine comes to visit for two whole weeks soon, and I find it hilarious how giddy I am about it... though, I know she is primarily excited about seeing her granddaughters!! ;)

  25. I've never been to Boston, but I've heard great things.

    Isn't it always such a treat to have your mom around? I love when my mom is around to help out with holden...and he loves it too!

    Also, I'm kind of obsessing over your mustard pants! Where did you get them?

    xo,
