We headed up to Boston for a wedding, so we decided to make a trip out of it and do some exploring while we were there. I think we got there right before it got unbearably cold. While it was 70’s in South Carolina, we were in a high of 52 up in the Boston area. It was perfectly chilly, and we loved exploring while the leaves were still intact and falling. I highly recommend the Boston area in the fall.
We spent one day exploring Boston, and another day exploring Rockport, Massachusetts. Fun story, it’s where my parents visited when they were dating and claim “where they fell in love.” ;) It was fun to ride along the coast with them and hear of all the places they explored together.
This year we decided to host a little friendsgiving feast at our home. It’s finally starting to feel like fall, and there’s little I love more than a dinner tablescape set up outdoors. Since it was our close friends, we had everyone contribute to the meal and bring their favorite thanksgiving dish. My goal was to make the dinner feel special, but to also keep it low key and relaxed. I opted for a simple bouquet as the centerpiece, gold candle sticks, and eucalyptus as a table runner. We hung string lights over the table and had a fire going. We started dinner right at dusk and chatted into the evening. It was a lovely night.
We are back from the most wonderful trip to Boston, and I wanted to share some pictures with you guys here! We spent the weekend in the area for a wedding, and did a little exploring in our free time. Piper was such a champ and was so excited to go on an airplane. She surprised me by napping in her stroller on the go, which made me so so thankful for our bugaboo stroller. When she started doozing, we tilted it back and covered her with the canopy, which kept things dark and kept the wind out, keeping her warm.
I loved every inch of the city, and would move there tomorrow if I could! We started our exploration around the Beacon Hill area, where there are a lot of shops, coffee shops, and adorable streets. We checked out the historic Acorn Street and there were people everywhere taking pictures, haha.
Madeline is one of my favorite books from childhood, so I had dreams of making Piper a mini Madeline. Before I knew it Saturday rolled around and I still didn’t have any costume plans for her, so I put her in this little Pooh Bear costume Scofield wore when he was her age. I had to dress up for Halloween at work, and had a blue dress in my costume so threw together a Madeline look. Since the theme at work was “storybook characters”, I decided I’d go with the same theme for Piper and I. Storybook Characters for Halloween: Madeline and Winnie the Pooh it is!
