a beacon hill valentine


The weather today was a Valentine's Day gift to all of Boston. Almost 50 degrees and sunny with entirely clear skies. I was stuck in bed sick almost all of last week, so I was almost giddy to get out of class and outside into the delightful weather. It was the perfect day for a long stroll, so I head down Mass Ave and onto Beacon Street to make my way to Beacon Hill. As a student, I like to walk down the fancy streets to day dream when I pass the gorgeous brownstones and wonder what sort of well-to-do lives inside. Today, I walked to Charles Street, the main street for the Beacon Hill neighborhood. It is home to some of the most lovely boutiques and specialty food shops. On this Valentine's Day, I stopped into Beacon Hill Chocolates to take a look around and snap some shots of their festive decor. (And also to try a truffle or two!)

Charles Street is almost like leaving the city. It doesn't have the normal vibe of Back Bay/Fenway area that I'm used that is littered with college students. There are families here. It reminds me of a small town. Reminds me of home.

    sincerely, M
