Oh hey friends!!!
I always feel so silly when I write out the intro to my post- I never really know how to begin. I compare it to writing essays, like back in my high school/college days- the intro was always the hardest part, wasn’t it?
Well, in my last post I wrote about Saturday in Boston which actually happened last weekend prior to this weekend. Ya’ll following along? So I never got around to sharing my Sunday Funday adventure from that same weekend.
So that Sunday my sister Kathy mentioned that she wanted to come and visit me and go into the city. I was so thrilled, I couldn’t refuse especially since I haven’t had 1 on 1 time with her in so long. I anticipated her arrival the day we made the plans. Granted she’s only an hour away but it’s still tough seeing each other on the reg.
Sunday comes rolling in and before I knew it, she had arrived! We took the T directly into the city and decided we were going to go get some Hot Pot in Chinatown. If you don’t know what hot pot is, it’s basically a pot of soup of your choosing that’s boiling the entire time and you can choose any raw meats, seafood, rice or noodles, veggies, and you just throw it into the hot pot (ya get it?). It cooks crazy fast because the soup is scorching and you just eat it as you want. It’s one of my favorite meals and the experience of it is just really cool too.
While in Chinatown, we obviously had to get some bubble tea! My go-to is the Japanese Milk Green Tea one and Kathy got the Thai Milk Pearl Tea, which I tried and WOW-WEE. Delicious.
We had one place in mind where was wanted to wander around in and of course take about 100 pictures…
Beacon Hill is my favorite place to photograph or be photographed. I tell Britt over and over that I want her to do a photo shoot of Andrew and me in Beacon Hill. I love the lavished brick apartments and the part cobblestone part brick roadways, its just flat our gorgeous. Which also explains why it’s one of the most expensive neighborhoods in Boston. I was especially impressed because a lot of the stoops of the apartments were decorated beautifully with the season and holiday. Loved it.
The cool thing about Beacon Hill is that you can just wander around and around and find cute ally ways, gardens, gates, or even homes like this that don’t particularly belong but definitely worthy of being photographed.
The photos below were from a past post Life In Boston: Favorite Places To Visit
But just for some more views of Beacon Hill.
This is actually one of the most popular and most photographed streets here; Acorn Street. Kathy and I walked by hoping to snag a photo but everyone and their mom had the same idea and were posing and snapping pictures there.
So we were on the prowl for the perfect brick wall to be our backdrop-
Kathy had an amazing picture opt day. You know when you have those days where you just photograph really well, like the sun and stars are just aligned for you and you look good any which way. That was 100% Kathy I got so many good ones of her.
After taking an absurd amount of pictures we headed for the Public Gardens to just sit down and relax.
I always get so giddy every time she comes up and we can have a little city adventure. Nothing better than some sista sista time! ❤
