Two weeks ago, I celebrated my nine year anniversary of living in Boston. Each year I celebrated that as an accomplishment because I moved from a small town, on my own, with no financial help. Plenty of emotional support along the way though – (thanks, Mom!), but since then – I’ve pretty much been on my own.
Boston is one of the most picturesque cities in the United States. It’s charming, quaint, clean and has stories woven throughout from the historical events that have taken place here. It’s no wonder that it’s consistently rated one of the top cities in America to visit by Travel & Leisure.
My trip to Aruba this past summer was nothing short of incredible. If you missed it, check out my experience at Flamingo Beach – the photos alone are worth the click!
So, instead of writing a bunch of text explaining my trip, I thought a photo essay would be most appropriate given that at every turn Aruba was just stunning. Talk about photo opps! 😍 So, take a peak at my trip below – from behind the lens! 📷 Enjoy!
This time last month, I was packing up my stuff, getting ready to head back to Boston after another amazing mother/daughter trip. My mom and I started this thing a few years ago, where we take a trip together some time in August (towards the end of summer to savor every last moment!) and this year we decided to head to the Caribbean – our happy place.
When I visit a new city I like to experience it like the locals do. Rarely do I opt to visit/experience a tourist attraction, frankly because I know it’s just that! I’d much rather walk like the locals, talk like the locals and play like the locals – it’s way more fun.
