Happy New Year Dear Bloggers!
Where have I been? I have been here, yes, just catching up, enjoying family, holidays and trying to just be. Everything has been so festive and so many wonderful family times! We actually spend Christmas 24th and 25th in Boston! Yes, it was certainly different but, oh, so nice. Due to the wedding in early December and everyone being together we couldn't get people together again until the 27th and weekend. ( have to share the kids with their in-laws, boyfriends parents etc)
So we had the brilliant idea to spend the two days in the city. It was so lovely, we stayed at the FOUR SEASONS HOTEL and were so indulged with all the luxuries you can imagine. We walked the city all bundled up, it was seasonally freezing. We had Christmas Eve dinner at our favorite Chinese restaurant, PF Changs. We brought an artificial tree and decorated it in our room and opened a few presents. (all arranged by my husband, yes he's a sweetheart) We walked to midnight mass at the most beautiful church, "Trinity" in Boston. Walked back to the hotel and had the best sleep. Christmas morning was so stunning. We woke to looking out at The Boston Common and a fabulous breakfast in the Four Seasons dining room. The Common was calling us so we walked on Christmas morning to visit the Ducklings and even a market open on Christmas morning! The city is so exciting and a whole different way of life. Yes, I know it was different but I think we made the best of not having the kids actually on Christmas day!!! We had FUN
We then spent the rest of the day with Hb sisters and family. We always have so many laughs, delicious food and love.
Here are an assortment of photos
