Boston Bucket-List

We’ve finally moved to Boston (more on that here). New York City felt infinite and endless – there was almost too much going on at all times. Just when we got the hang of the city though, it was time to move on. Perhaps we’ll be back again some day, perhaps not – the next time we’ll move we’ll be almost 30. Although that’s still VERY young, perhaps by then we would’ve missed our window of living in NYC (we ONLY want to live in Manhattan, not an adjacent, perhaps slower, borough). So for now, I look at those last two years with the fondest of memories – and plans of experiencing the city as we once did, except on weekend trips.

But don’t fret! Boston is almost as good. While there are infinitely other cities – perhaps on the west coast?! – that we’d love to live in and eventually settle down in, for now at least it’s a great city to spend a few years until M finishes grad school. And in typical G + M fashion, we’ll make the most of it!
