Happy birthday USA

Independence DayIt is Independence day in the USA and while I feel like our reputation has taken a hit in recent years (a self-inflicted hit at that), there is still plenty to be proud of and to celebrate so for everyone in the US and to those living abroad; have a wonderful July 4th.

Happy Easter

Here is a throwback to the spring of 2002 when Sergio and I lived in Back Bay and our neighbor was raising “show bunnies”; you read that correctly by the way.

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.

Happy New Year

Since today is New Year’s Eve day, and tomorrow is a holiday I’ll refrain from posting my usual “What’s Happening This Week” and leave you with this image.

I suggest that you choose the color of your underwear wisely. If you’re in a sharing mood, leave the color of underwear you plan to wear tonight in the comments section.

New Year’s Eve celebrations in Boston

New Year's Eve, NYE Most of you likely have plans for New Year’s Eve. Sergio and I typically order out and watch movies; switching to watch the ball drop in Times Square at Midnight then crawling into bed with hopes that we will strike it rich in the New Year, quit our jobs and travel for the rest of our lives.

You too may have plans for New Year’s Eve but in case those plans fall through or you are procrastinating and wondering what you can do, I’ve pulled together  a list of options for you to consider. Many of these parties require tickets or have a cover at the door so click the link to learn more if interested.

Enjoy your Labor Day Weekend

Although the heatwave that had most of New England sweltering through much of the week is no longer here and the forecast is for rain, I want to wish everyone a fun-filled long holiday weekend. Summer is Boston’s briefest season and I will miss it. I had a wonderful summer with friends and family this year.
