Boston, Massachusetts

After we left my home in North Carolina, we made the long drive up to Boston. We had a couple of days to kill before heading out to our friend’s summer house on the Cape. Boston was the natural choice to stop in, and it was even more exciting because Jeremy had never been!

Our first stop was Tatte Bakery and it was delicious! They had iced coffee and fresh tea and warm egg sandwiches.

We took our brunch over to the Boston Public Garden, where we found a shady, grassy spot and slowly closed out the morning.

I honestly think no one should go to Boston without a long, long visit to the Public Garden. It is a truly beautiful spot.

Welcoming you to the garden is none other than the “venerated Virginian veteran” George Washington.

Another spot you’d surely find on any Boston Must Do List is the Beacon Hill neighborhood. If you’ve been reading this blog for any length of time at all, you’ll know Jer and I love to just stroll. And Beacon Hill is tailor made for strolling.

We also tracked down the famous Acorn Street, which is supposedly the most photographed street in America.

When it got slightly too hot for strolling (it is July after all), we popped into Restoration Hardware for some house inspiration. Could you die over this setup?

But probably my very favorite stop of all in Boston was the Public Library.

The most beautiful building, inside and out, and housing a beautiful workspace. Wouldn’t it be so lovely to work the day away in this room?!

And here I’ve discovered a creative photographer in an empty Boston Public Library, very rare in the wild.

While our time in Boston was short and sweet, I was excited because it signals the start of our trip through New England, which is a part of the country Jer has never visited and already loves!
