I absolutely LOVE my city! Never in a million yrs would I imagine that I would end up here but am so grateful that I can call this city home. My husband went to undergrad here yrs ago (before we met). After graduating from med school and landing a residency/fellowship position at Harvard Medical, he moved back here. I followed shortly after.

Every city that I’ve lived in, all had that cookie cutter feel. Everything looks the same everywhere. I’ve always wanted to live in a city that feels unique, offers stylish cafes at every corner, boasts architectural charm & character, and walking anywhere/everywhere was part of the culture. Wasn’t sure if this imaginary city of mine existed.

And then Boston found me. I’ve never felt so connected to a place like I do here. There is always something to do at any given time and Christmas actually feels like Christmas! Imagine Christmas in Miami!

So this weekend, while the hubs was away at a conference, Zoey and I took the T into the city. Just after two short stops, we were dropped off in the heart of downtown crossing. Ah- the luxury of city life and living in Boston!

Mommy +  me strolled through the Boston commons (founded in 1643, America’s oldest park), went shopping (bought Z the CUTEST pieces EVER!), and took a break to watch the pigeons.

Here are some snaps from my phone:

Do you see the pigeons on top of the sculpture’s heads?

Zoey was curious about the pigeons and followed them. But once they started flying, she got scared and ran away!

Downtown Boston is always bustling with city trolleys. It’s one of the many things that adds to the vibrancy of the city.

And here’s an instagram pic of the city on our way back from the commons. Home is where the heart is and my heart belongs here (w/ the husband + Z).

PS- Boston in a way reminds me of Paris. I LOVE Paris to death.
