#674 Friends in Boston (or) Where Everybody Knows Your Name.
by Erin Napier
The morning started out with breakfast at Trident Booksellers on Newbury Street. Josh and Em told us we HAD to go there for breakfast, and to order the Morning Monte Cristo. It did not disappoint. We weren’t ready for lunch until after 3.
Here are some snapshots of our first whole day in Boston. I’ll save the best for last!
Boston Public Library:
In Boston Common, making a game plan. We got sidetracked.
Antiques browsing on Beacon Hill:
Every year we buy an old world style Christmas ornament when we go on vacation. Welcome to the Napier Christmas, Massachusetts:
And then… And then. We met up with Shad in Cambridge on the campus of Hah-vud Univuhsity.
This is the John Harvard statue that folks love to rub for good luck (check out that shiny brass toe), but we happen to know that the fraternity boys tee tee on it every year to get a laugh at the tourists.
Don’t touch it, sister!
Being on the Harvard campus was one of my favorite parts of the day, for sure. It felt sacred to be in a place where so many great scholars (like Shad!) have studied. The architecture and landscape are gorgeous.
Then we were on to dinner at The Beehive, a really cool little restaurant/bar/jazz club to meet Anne and Josh, the all-time greatest clients of Lucky Luxe. We became friends while working on their wedding via email, then we met in NYC last Christmas for the first time, now we stay in touch all the time via facebook and email and got to meet up again in Boston this year. I hope it becomes an annual thing because we so love getting to see the Lustyans.
And guess who else came?
Josh and Em! They honeymooned in Boston last year and it’s their all-time favorite city so they were happy to meet up with us outside of Jones County for once.
Now with sore feet and sleepy heads, we’re turning out the lights. See y’all tomorrow!
