Boston

i made it back. boston was awesome. within hours of arriving i told grant he needed to look into post-docs there so we could live there at least for a little while. fat chance, but a girl can dream can't she??

it was a pretty laid back trip - just what i needed. we did a little sightseeing (when the weather cooperated), a little conferencing, and a lot of eating. there are about 1 billion dunkin donuts there - SO good! and our hotel was by this really cute neighborhood with lots of cute restaurants and an AMAZING ice cream shop.

kendra and i hung out wednesday and thursday and then on friday her friend Alisha arrived with her baby - Ella James. It was so good to finally meet them - we've emailed and kept up with one another through the blogging world. Alisha is a great photographer (even if she doesn't know it yet) and posted her pictures here. Don't judge my photos - hers are WAY better. but you get the idea...

Sunday they all flew home and my aunts picked me up for a day by the ocean and scouring antique shops. (i found some great embroidered pieces & and a silk print of a mother nursing her baby...show you later...) we had a great time catching up and talking about the wedding...i can't believe i get to see them all again in a month!

I flew home late last night to a very tired and worn out (but happy to see me) grad student - he is so sweet and welcomed me with a card and flowers...
