Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

Lately, Boston has been having great weather, high 70’s/low 80’s and sunny. The weather looks perfect for this (long) weekend. Today my work is closing early, at 2:30, I can’t wait to get my weekend started; kicking off the summer.

This summer I look forward to spending lots of time on our front porch, as its our first summer having access to a porch. I’ve already done some decorating with these flowers that I planted;

Currently we have some red and blue folding chairs on the porch, but I would love to have this hand-made unique swing out there! I entered to win it via the Free People Blog website. I hope I win!!

Sunday Afternoon

This weekend, the sun was out and about (today its back to raining!) Yesterday was my first day of not smoking, it’s really tough! I was on a mission to keep myself occupied, so I went for a walk around my neighborhood.

Rain, Rain, Rain

Boston has had so much rain all week. The nice thing is that we now have colors you would expect to see in a rainforest.

Spring Flowers/Around the Block

Today I went for a walk around my neighborhood; all the flowers were brightly blooming in the warm sun.

Charlestown Community Gardens –

I discovered this place where the residents of Charlestown can maintain their own private garden in a public setting – of course in the middle of winter you can’t expect to see blooming flowers.
