It was hard to smile today as my heart is still heavy from the tragic events that played out on Monday. What was once solely known as such a historical and prestigious day will be tarnished with the senseless acts that took lives, injured so many and put an entire city in a state of panic. I hope that the perpetrators are found and brought to justice.
My heart goes out to those that were affected or have loved ones that were affected.
So it seems that Boston will be hit with another snow storm. We didn’t receive much snow until recently but the impact of having it snow so much in a short span of time is brutal. Enough is enough!! With that being said, I’m going to go out tonight and enjoy the evening since it’s likely that I’ll be snowed in this weekend.Argghh!!
Have a lovely weekend everyone!

I was so happy to see all the support being given to the troops, nobly defending and honoring our country. I am so gracious for their sacrifices.
Around town they had so many events to show support. While strolling through the Copley Mall I observed a station setup for
folks to write holiday cards to the troops. What a great way to boost morale…There was also Boston’s annual Veteran’s Day parade. I also learned about Trees for Troops. Individuals can buy trees that will be donated to military families. Learn more here: www.mahoneysgarden.com.
I hope you all are enjoying the weekend and do something to support our troops.
Over the weekend there were a few events worth seeing. There was the Boston Book Fair, the Occupy Boston March, and the Boston Food Swap. The Boston Book Fair event is the oldest fair of its kind of antiquarian books. There were a variety of activities during the fair including musical performances. Those who support Occupy Boston showed commitment to their cause by parading the streets of Boston to spread their message. The Boston Food Festival is hosted its October Food Swap at Space With a Soul. At the food swap you can swap your homemade and homegrown creations with other attendees.
While I hit the streets I knew a look of comfort would be key. I think I hit the mark while still showing my style and individuality.
Last night I attended the Fashion’s Night Out event at Saks Fifth Avenue. I had such a wonderful time. There were so many well-dressed Bostonians and the clothing at Yuna Yang’s fashion was to die for. I took a few pictures of the beautiful models there. It was weird eating and drinking in the store. I was in fear of spilling something on the pricey merchandise there. Luckily, I managed not to spill or knock anything over. I eventually made my way to Newbury Street. It was really cool to see all the luxury vehicles on display on the street. There was music and performances. It was totally worth staying out too late!
