I didn’t quite make it to Harvard, but my time in this charming city was pretty satisfying. Mom and I arrived mere hours before Christmas and spent a few days exploring and relaxing with family. The Atlanta heat decided to tag along with us and Christmas day was rather warm, but it made taking pictures in the park at night a lot easier.Remember when I said that I would do some bad eating over break? I achieved that goal in Boston. Plenty of pizza…sweet desserts…and pretty coffee!
Not pictured: enough eggnog and junk food to last me until next Christmas. I forgot how much I missed Oreos.
We made the most of sunny days and worked our way around the city.
Mom and I braved the 30 degree weather to visit Boston University.
This was one of those sobering, oh-wow-I’m-actually-going-to-be-a-real-adult-soon moments. Armed with a cup of coffee and my mom’s sound advice, I considered what Boston life would be like. Easy summers, more people, winters that were less bitter than I expected but still a big change for a Georgia peach like me. I’m sure that life will lead me to a big city one day, so could I see Boston as home?
In the downtime and on rainy/snowy days, we watched movies on the couch all cozy and warm. My favorite way to spend a lazy day, with some of my favorite people.
I think I could learn to like Boston, if that’s where I’m destined to go one day. I can’t wait to go back!
What did you get up to over the holidays?
