A Winter Day in Boston

Well hello there lovies!  Apparently it takes a full blown blizzard to allow me to blog now a days!  It’s been 12 days since my last post (am I in confession?).  Between work, teaching yoga, practicing yoga, having a puppy child, and now planning a wedding, I am slacking on the blog, and it makes me sad.

But now I have no excuse because here in Connecticut we are slowly but surely cozying up and preparing to be home bound for at least 36 hours as this blizzard they are calling Juno approaches.  So I am hunkering down, and writing!

Last week I took advantage of having weekdays off and a best friend who was in between jobs.  I made a very quick trip to Boston and it was perfect! I haven’t been up there for a visit in way too long and was very over due.

My best friend still lives in our apartment that we were in for 3 years in Brookline.  It’s sort of like a trip down memory lane and always bittersweet.

The night I got there, Rachel made me a yummy dinner and we spent lots of time catching up.  So much, that I have no pictures to show for it.  But the next day I have plenty!

We started our day for a 90 minute yoga class with my favorite (and one of my first ever) yoga teacher at Back Bay Yoga.  It was awesome being back there.

We then headed towards Newbury Street where I got a Vanilla Ginger Almond Milk Latte from Thinking Cup. Yum!!

With our coffees in hand we set out to get some mani pedis. No pictures for you there.

After nails and searching Yelp (oh how I miss living in a city) we decided on lunch.  We found a newer Mediterranean Restaurant on the corner of Mass Ave and Boylston called Zest.  I had chicken schwarma, tabouli, and hummus.  It was really delicious and super cheap for the size!

After lunch, we did some window shopping.  I found this card in Urban Outfitters and sent it to Andy…no need to purchase.

After window shopping we made our way to the Boston Common.

And then to the Frog Pond!

I’m not the most avid ice skater.  We lasted for a whole 15 minutes, but it was fun!

Once we got our Frog Pond skating in, we headed down Beacon Street so that I could get a glimpse of the Charles River.  It used to be my favorite place in Boston, especially to run. And of course catch a sunset.

Boston will always have a piece of my heart.  Until next time Boston.
