We made it...

After an extremely long day of traveling we're finally in Boston. We left the house on Tuesday, June 30 around 10:30 pm. Thankfully our flight was on time and left at 12:40 am on Wednesday, July 1. We had just a short hour lay-over in Houston where we got breakfast, which was about 3:00 am our time, and then we hopped on another 3 hour flight to Boston. We had to hang out at the airport for a little while because we couldn't get into the apartment until 4:00 pm, so we had lunch and walked around a little.

We got unpacked, explored a little bit (this neighborhood is absolutely amazing...I can't wait to get out and take pictures!), Layton went to the grocery store to pick up some breakfast and lunch foods, and then he picked up some pizza for dinner. Tonight is kinda just a chill night so we can get our game plan together for tomorrow. There is about a 60% chance of rain tomorrow so we're going to plan some a few outdoor things, just in case it doesn't rain all day. If it rains all day, we'll hit up some of the museums.

The apartment that we're staying in is absolutely amazing! The building itself was built in 1860 as a town home and in 1920 it was divided up into the 14 units that exist today. Unit #2 was remodeled in 2007 and they used a lot of original material to this area. For example, the glass in the kitchen cabinets is over 100 years old. It looks out onto a fabulous patio that I'm hoping we can use once the rain lets up. It blows my mind that the unit is only 225 sq ft!! It has a great bathtub that I can't wait to use tonight.

I am so excited to get out and see the city tomorrow. There will definitely be some pictures on my Flickr site tomorrow night!

Today's blessing: getting to experience and stay in this amazing city with all of its history. I can't wait to learn more about some of the history that shaped our country.


  1. Ok I LOVE this daily blessing blog! Such a great idea.

  2. Thanks! It's been kinda fun. I know that some days are going to be harder than others to think of a blessing :)
