8th Night

What a treat to light all 9 candles of the menorah on the 8th night of Hanukah on New Year’s Eve with two of our dearest friends, before sitting down to a delicious fondue dinner!

Snowed in

Thursday, December 29th, 2016

We hit some bad weather on the drive back from Montreal, and decided to wait it out at a lovely hotel in Burlington, Vermont. We had a very pleasant day reading by the fire, then drove home on clear roads the next day.

Grafton Street

Friday, January 2nd, 2015

A delicious meal at a cozy restaurant after an afternoon at a beautiful museum … pretty damn good. I’ve been to Grafton Street a few times, each with time with several years in between, so it was great to be back.


Eddie Izzard

Friday, May 9th, 2014

When my birthday falls on a work day, even if that day is a Friday, all I want to do is go out for a nice dinner with my sweetie, and go home and hang out. But when Brian’s sister offered us her tickets to see Eddie Izzard at the Wang, we figured carpe diem. We still had a nice dinner together, and then we laughed our asses off in a fancy theater. Just another lovely birthday.

Best of 2013

Tuesday, December 31st, 2013

2013 was a lovely year, filled with family and friends, weddings and babies, little trips around New England, trips to Pennsylvania to see family, a trip to California to see old friends, and of course, our endless wanderings around our beautiful city. Life, as it should be.

Here’s a few of my favorite photos from this year’s photoblog entries:

Hanover Theater

Becky’s Tree

Saturday, December 7th, 2013

I went from decorating zero trees to decorating three trees this year! We helped our friend Becky decorate her tree, we’ll be getting our tree soon, and we’ll decorate my in-laws’ tree on Christmas Eve. I love hearing the stories behind the ornaments.

The first of three …

Glass Pumpkin

Sunday, October 13th, 2013

The mid-October early morning sun was pouring in through the front window and lit up the glass pumpkin that I bought at MIT Glass Lab’s Great Pumpkin patch a few weeks ago. I love fall!

Maureen brought 12-week old Stanley along for a sunset walk around Jamaica Pond, and Stanley made LOTS of new friends!!

Fitz and Bruno

Tuesday, June 25th, 2013

We didn’t put up too much of a fight when Brendan and Courtney suggested that we all go see Fitz and the Tantrums. We fell in love with them during the year before our wedding, and we played some of their music at the wedding, including for our first dance. Who cares that the concert was at an enormous hockey arena, and that they were actually just the opening band for Bruno Mars? So we met up with B & C for amazing pizza in the North End, then followed the crowds to the Boston Garden and settled in for an incredible show! Fitz was amazing, and I have to say, I was a little overwhelmed by how much the ladies swoon over Bruno Mars, but he is an absolutely stellar performer.



B & C on our way to the concert. Had to include this one because they got engaged two days before, and because they looked at eachother just as I snapped this shot!
