Thanks for never disappointing me. Ever. Year after year, you continue to enchant me with your abundant culture, amazing history, classic architecture, chic dining, and prepster style.
I shall always return eager to see more of your endless beauty and majestic old towne charm.
P.S. I still haven't figured out how to NOT eat my weight in bread and cheese when I visit you.
In Boston, practically everything is art. Even a fire escape.
I really should have picked up one of these posters…Peter was giving me the evil eye so I cowered. I really don't blame him, you should see the unframed art collection plus piles of empty frames I have for my "someday" walls. I may still find a way to snag one of these, though.
Everywhere you turn there are beautiful details from as far back as the 1800's. This fence could easily be 250 years old.
My poor strappy sandals have just about been walked out. I know you have to see them in almost every post, but I love them so much. Found them at Kate Spade on Newbury last year.
Our traditional Beacon Hill stroll.
Peter loved this driveway and asked me to snap a pic of it as inspiration for a "someday" driveway for us, ha haaa. Please also note the gorgeous blue sky.
Cutest sign from this adorable store.
We really didn't take a whole lot of pics, but decided instead to completely relax and soak up the city and all of its ambience. We walked for hours and hours each day. Despite being greeted by rain on Friday, the sky was a brilliant blue the remainder of the weekend and the heat was graced with a sweet, warm breeze.
Here are my favorite two restaurants we hit:
La Voile: we dined outside and sipped sparkling wine while nibbling on their famous pâté. Peter ordered their cream of carrot soup and it was creamy and delicious.
Kashmir: an incredible experience in Indian Cuisine. Best Naan bread I've ever had – couldn't quit eating it. I'm not a big fan of Indian food, it's Peter's thing, but I was dying over my dinner. I highly recommend the Gosht Saag (boneless lamb cooked with yogurt, spinach and spices). We ordered the Heer-Ranjha Dinner for two which included appetizers, a main course and dessert. It was so so so delicious. Their menu is here.
The trip was perfect in every way and it recharged us both. A nice reprieve from a busy summer with a family of six.
