There were several things going for us like: it was a chance to "escape" with hubby; I would be seeing San Francisco and New York again after a long time, and Boston for the first time; the trip won't be longer than two weeks so we would still have enough time to spend with the sons; and I'd be seeing my younger sibling (from the other side of the globe in Toronto) who would be joining the BOS-NYC legs of the business trip. It would be an instant reunion for us after last seeing each other in May 2012....
You see, next to my hubby and sons, my younger big bro is my best travel companion.
I love it when he unwittingly becomes my photo subject... (Waltham, Massachusetts)
(Boston Marathon memorial for bomb victims, Copley Square)
(Central Park, New York)
(Times Square, NYC)
(Mario Batali's Eataly)
... to do OOTDs... (Nordstrom Rack, Newbury)
(Revere Hotel before the drive to Waltham)
It's extra memorable when he shares with me my first taste of real Boston clam chowder (Legal Seafoods resto)...
I enjoy it when he hams it up with my hubby (Vapiano, Boston)
(Chelsea Market, NYC)
or with me at the site of the Friends tv sitcom
or at Boston Common...
When hubby asked me again if I wanted to join him... "So, when do we leave?", I readily and excitedly replied.
