We figured this would be our only chance to be photographed with so many bunnies so we took the opportunity and made the most of it.

Established in 1837 The Boston Public Garden is a beautiful park in the center of town. I thought I’d share this gorgeous photo taken by Bret Clancy who has many photos of Boston on his IG account and available for sale on Etsy here. Much thanks to Arts Boston Instagram for posting this picturesque photo of kids playing hockey last month.
Quite possibly my favorite bookstore (certainly my favorite bookstore in Boston), Trident Booksellers and Cafe, was forced to close temporarily after a fire broke out in late February, but last week the bookstore reopened after undergoing extensive renovations.
The Trident’s cafe / restaurant was a favorite location of mine when I lived in the Back Bay so even if you’re not much of a reader you can go enjoy some food then check out their monster magazine rack or purchase a few funny cards. Keep in mind, the Trident now has daily entertainment / programming every evening so there really is never a bad time to stop by and see the newly renovated space.
While I’ve yet to have a chance to visit the bookstore I wanted to help get word out and encourage everyone to visit the Trident on Newbury Street between Hereford Street and Massachusetts Avenue.
Show this local business some love.

ICYMI, another HUGE project was approved by the city of Boston last week. Boston Properties received unanimous approval from the Boston Planning and Development Agency board last Thursday for their air-rights project above the MBTA’s Back Bay Station.
The project will add 1.3+ million-square-feet of mixed-use development, including a new 34-story building,office building with ground floor retail, two new residential buildings, a one- to two-story vertical retail expansion of the existing Back Bay Station building, and the partial redevelopment of the existing 165 Dartmouth Street Garage. For more information visit bldup.com.
The event, officially known as “Open Newbury”, has many retailers hosting promotions to entice pedestrians who are expected to come and enjoy the one mile promenade through Back Bay.
About three weeks ago James Sutherland snapped and shared this beautiful photo of the Boston Public Garden. Since then the Public Garden has transformed as the trees have flowered and the buds have been replaced with leaves, but I loved this photo with Boston’s Back Bay off in the distance, seemingly enveloped in fog.
