Happy Monday! The past week found me in Boston and Albany. Boston was the perfect stopover en route back from Martha’s Vineyard, especially since my little sister recently relocated there from New Orleans. I’ve been to the city dozens of times — my Dad lived in Cambridge for years, and Albany is less than three hours away — yet I’ve never really fallen in love with it. I’m looking forward to discovering a new side to it now, though, and we got off to a great start with this trip. Sleepovers at the XV Beacon hotel, cocktails at Mooo, morning walks through the Commons, and an afternoon at my old favorite the New England Aquarium — this trip was short but sweet.
Post Boston, I spent a few days in Albany trying to get back on track with work and to keep preparing for upcoming travels. Considering how productive I am when I’m there (and how cute Tucker is when we’re both there), it’s kind of hard to tear myself away. But I’ve only been down in New York City for one night since I got back stateside — shameful! — and Brooklyn calls. Looking forward to a week spent working and playing back in my favorite city.
