It’s hard to believe that Summer is here. Historically, we have had back to back weekend trips and big trips planned all Summer. This year, however, we are doing things differently. As we continue to save for a house and plan for our future, we are limiting our out of town travel and focusing on all of the good things that Boston has to offer. This city just explodes with excitement in Summer, as the sun comes out and the daylight extends. Boston feels even more European in the warmer months, as window boxes are lush and almost every restaurants has outdoor space. Often times, we take for granted what’s right outside our door so my goal is to not do that this year! I am making this list to hold myself accountable to exploring this wonderful city I live in as much as I can.
