Boston is such a fun and cool city! All my preconceived notions and ideas about what Boston would be like changed once we spent a lovely Easter weekend up there. First of all, it's nothing like Philadelphia or New York size wise. In my mind, where growing up the "city" is referring to New York, every city automatically makes me think a million people. While that is definitely true of New York and even Philadelphia, although we are very spread out, Boston is a quaint city in comparison.
We started off our Easter Sunday with a run through Cambridge, where my brother lives. We ran through Haaaarvard, along the Charles River and just through the little neighborhoods. What an awesome vibe and culture! It also just happened to be the weekend of the Boston marathon, so runners and people supporting Boston were everywhere. It felt good to be a part of this community for the weekend.
We mostly hung out and ate delicious food in Cambridge for Easter. Drinks were had on a roof top deck, naps were taking, tons of cooking was going on. And the night wrapped up in a buzzed haze of Cards Against Humanity and chocolate cookies. It was such a great day!

This is similar to the recipe we used, except we substituted champagne vinegar for the balsamic and added crab meat.
Some of the other food we consumed that day:
|Who doesn't love a well made cheese board??|
|Strawberry and Rosemary Scones, recipe from M love M.|
|A Boston side street.|
Overall, it was a short but amazing trip. I cannot wait to get back to Boston to explore some more. There is so much to see and do (& eat!) and the city is so clean and inviting. I recommend a trip for anyone who has never been.
P.S. There will be MUCH more traveling posts ahead!
