Boston Proper

June 13, 2012

Last weekend I went to see my best girlfriend in Boston. We were overdue for some fun girl time and she just got new digs. I arrived in the afternoon and it was hot and sunny and everyone was outside enjoying themselves.  The green spaces and gardens peppered all over the city offer the perfect respite to beat the heat and streets.

The swan boats were skimming the water with people eager to cool off.

Some parks had a carnival-like flair! These pics are from two different spots. Couldn’t resist the Rooster!

We walked everywhere we went.  We had a great time being out and about, chitchatting the whole way!

Bacco is where we had a glass of prosecco to start the evening. I love the big windows open to the street.

For dinner we went to Volle Nolle in the North End. They have a tiny, delicious place over there!  Tory, one of the owners, served up the best glass of vino I’ve had in a while.  My portobello sandwich was so good — I can’t wait to go back!

 Our stroll around the North End was a lot of fun.  We saw old men sitting in folding chairs outside of the Italian restaurants shooting the breeze — it was priceless! The energy was great.  Saturday was the Celtics’ game 7 and people were happy to be out.   We ended the night with a glass of sangria on a rooftop deck and then a decadent dish of gelato. Perfecto!

Sunday was another beautiful day and we walked over to Newbury Street and then by Fenway Park to check out West Elm.  It was miles and miles, people!  The Red Sox had a home game and fans crowded into Yawkey Way.

We made mental wish lists at West Elm and headed home.

{I want this and this!}

I was sad to leave my friend, but so glad we got in some girl time over a fabulous Boston weekend!  Thanks Steph:)
