This Spring we took a trip to Boston. Our first “just because” trip. Typically we travel for family reasons or to make the most of a work convention, but this time we vacationed for the pure joy of it. Cheap flights + never having been before + a mother who loves to babysit = too many reasons NOT to go, right?

We did all the touristy things that every Boston first timer simply must do: walked the Freedom Trail top to bottom, ate our combined weights in seafood, took literally four nerdy guided tours, felt the sea breeze in our hair, and graced America’s finest ballpark. All of these things, on the arm of my favorite person, sent this city to the top of my “favorite places we’ve explored” list.
