I think I'll go to Boston...

I can't believe the marathon is finally here. We leave in just under 45 minutes to head to Boston & I am full of pre-race jitters right about now. 

I must admit, I am pretty darn excited for our road trip.  Living in Manhattan with no car means that it has been quite a while since the last time Kyle & I got to ride in a car together. Except those crazy, swerving yellow taxis of course.  But that is gonna change. 
Road trip with Kyle.
Outlet shopping.
Red Sox game.
Hanging with best friends from high school friends.
Boston Commons, the Freedom Trail, & other cool sites.
& and to top it all off: running the Boston Marathon. A dream come true!

Ready or not, Boston here I come!

a Sunday walk in the park

The change from the cold, dreary bitterness of winter to the bright sunshine & fresh beginnings that signify spring.
One day peering from our place into Central Park, it was all bare tree branches. The next, blossoms and trees full of green! It was as if this transformation literally occured overnight in front of our attentive eyes.
Truly amazing.
Blooming tulips. Laughing children. Bikers. Runners. Horse drawn carriages. Cherry blossom trees. Sailboats. Rowboats. Street performers. Painters. Musicians. Photographers. Carousels. Picnics. Baseball games. Popsicle carts.
oh how I love Sunday walks in the park.
