Boston brings out the kid in me with carousel rides and cannolis from Mike’s Pastry.


Perfect day for a #carousel ride… #innerchild #idontwanttogrowup #summertime #playtime #lifeisgood #boston

A weekend getaway to Boston with my high school girl friends reminded me of how lucky I am to have friends who have seen me grow up and still accept me as I am – flaws and all.

One day, we will value these friendships differently as other things in life begin to take more of a priority – careers, significant others, children, etc. I hope I remember to look back and be grateful that at one point on our lives, we valued our friendship enough to create these memories.

Thank you Boston Commons for the spacious green grass, the carousel ride and boat ride across the lake. And thank you Mike’s Pastry for your famous cannolis.
