Checking In From Boston

Happy Hump Day!  Sam & I are enjoying our first time in Boston, and since our time here is almost up, I thought I'd check in mid-week to share a few pictures with you.  The one area I have loved exploring the most is Beacon Hill.  The charming town homes, cafes and boutiques up and down the hills are just gorgeous.  When I saw this golden retriever posing for me with an American flag above, I thought, "Does it get more American than this!?"


I also loved the gas lanterns lining the street:


We enjoyed the SoWa arts market and I found a few vintage pieces to love:


While in the South End, we had brunch at Stella.  Any mimosa that comes with Stoli Orange is okay by me.  Sam had a "Dragon" which was a cocktail with watermelon and basil infused with rum.


I devoured my first lobster roll and wondered why it took me 25 years to do so.  Neptune Oyster came highly recommended, but I actually liked the lobster roll next door at Rabia's better (yes, I did try both):


We took a day trip out to Cambridge and toured Harvard.  This is Kirkland House, the dorm that Mark Zuckerberg lived in while creating what would become Facebook:


I am forever grateful for Erica's recommendations.  And I must say, Sam and I have used 36 Hours: 150 Weekends in the USA and Canada on several weekend trips and it has never steered us wrong.  I highly recommend it.

Now we're off to Cape Cod and Nantucket and following the recommendations of Mackenzie and Jacin!  Be sure to stay up-to-date by following along on instagram- @peakoftreschic.

Happy Wednesday!!

  11. Courtyard on St. James and The Wynden both have outdoor ceremony space in Houston. Chateau Cocomar out in Cypress is very pretty also and I do believe it has an outdoor ceremony space. Sell your home fast

  22. It’s unclear if WWE is waiting to see how Sting holds up or if a “newer” superstar such as Braun Strowman is ready for a marquee match such as facing the Undertaker at WrestleMania, but they are keeping their cards close to the vest. Watch Wwe wrestlemania 32 live streaming Online
