a few weeks ago, the mister and i headed up to boston for a long weekend. we stayed a small, but efficient airbnb in beacon hill. such a charming & beautiful neighborhood!

we didn't do much shopping, but i did stop in to black ink and loved it. super cute gift shop.

we wandered around beacon hill and then cut through boston common and boston public garden. the common was fine, but the garden! so lovely!! i wish we would have made a point to hang out there again, but the time got away from us.

next up was a bit of a wander down newbury street. a mix of boutiques and chain stores, and the buildings were all so lovely.

the next morning, we go up and headed over to the new boston public market where we breakfasted on the most amazing doughnuts from union square donuts. ZOMG, you guys. SO GOOD. we went back for seconds and made a point at stopping at their somerville location on our way out of town.

after fueling up for the day, we did some geocaching and walked a bit of the freedom trail.

the next day, we hit the suburbs to get some chick-fil-a (coming soon to manhattan!), then drove out to cape ann to visit our friend steph and chill out by the shore.

steph dropped us off at good harbor beach and we immediately started planning a vacation there for next summer. absolutely picture perfect. 

after steph was done working for the day, we wandered around her town of rockport. to say it was charming would be a massive understatement. so quintessentially new england!

the next morning, we got up and headed out to the boston museum of fine arts. i had seen some instagrams of the beautiful modern wing and we also wanted to check out the hokusai exhibit.

hokusai was way too crowded for any decent photos, but the modern wing! so good!!

after the museum, we had lunch on newbury street and then took an uber over to check out the lawn on d. unfortunately, i missed the fact that they were throwing a block party that day. needless to say, it was crazy crowded.

we were close to the water, so we walked that way instead and hung out on the harbor for a bit.

it was such a lovely long weekend. hope to make a return visit soon.
