Goodbye, birthday month. Hello, Christmastime.
I took this a few days ago but edited it just now. It's been a while since I've played around with filters and effects. I like how this one turned out.
Those lights are a new addition to the park. It's a little early for holiday sparkle, maybe, but I don't mind. Happy Thanksgiving Eve!
This was a fun week, because it's feeling a bit more like Christmastime around here.
Today we took a little road trip to Rhode Island. Later, I had lunch with a dear friend (and a few new ones) and we made plans to have a spa day after the holidays. I spent a little bit of time journaling (a rather new habit or, more accurately, a new habit I'm trying to develop) and made a batch of cookies - chocolate chip. (I often use the recipe on the bag of chocolate chips but today I made these. You won't be disappointed.)
The weather's turned cold, but odds are good that it won't be a white Christmas here in Boston. That's all right by me. I'm still a little weary from last winter's snow, so right now I'm quite happy to enjoy a picture of the white stuff from Christmas past.
What: Christmas wreaths and lights on Main Street
When: December 2010
Why: I love living in a neighborhood that gets decked out for the holidays. It's one of my favorite things about living here.
One of more recent additions to Boston's skyline is the Converse building. We're practically neighbors.
What: A view of Converse headquarters. Yes, that Converse.
Where: Boston, Massachusetts - from the spiral stairs near Paul Revere Park.
When: Saturday November 14, 2015
Why: I get a kick out of saying, "Those cool sneaker people are, like, neighbors," as if I could run over and borrow a cup of sugar or leave them a spare key to my condo in case I ever lock myself out of mine.
There's a cool little retail shop in that building, where you can custom design your own pair of Chucks by choosing the fabric and designs. One of these days I'll do that, in the spirit of being neighborly and all.
