Boston [Part Three! Last Post!]

Boston was a beautiful and much needed mind-clearer. This semester has been extremely hard, working full time between two jobs, having classes that demand a lot from me mentally and emotionally, going to bed late and waking up early, it's been hard. I think occasionally everyone needs to step away and take a breath. I got off the plane in Boston and took a very large gulp of air. It gave me a lot of time to think about my life and how it has changed in the past year. I walked all over the brick covered streets and fell in love with Boston all over again. However, I also felt something I haven't felt in a long time. I felt homesick. I saw everything Boston had to offer (and believe me, it's a lot) but then I thought of everything I love about Salt Lake. I went to Boston to get closure and that is exactly what I got. I came back refreshed, ready to start loving life again. Boston gave me a great gift and that was to be able to "See Beauty in the Common Things of Life." I came back with a newfound sense of how beautiful everything was around me. 

Graveyards are creepily beautiful, right? 

Fenway Park looked like the aftermath of Project X. Holy cow.

This was the lobby of our hostel. I wanted to prove to my mom it was not sketchy but I skillfully cropped the WAY creepy homeless man out of the picture.

Riley & The T 

We went when the weather was started to go downhill and booooy was it cold on our last day.  

Both Sarah and I came home with accents. It happens. 

Though I originally thought this would be my last time in Boston for a while, Mark has officially signed a contract to move to Washington D.C this summer. Hilarie and I will be visiting him and our other friends for the 4th of July and we will be doing NYC, Boston, Washington and probably Philly! I'm excited!
Thanks for listening to my Boston ramblings!
