We all heard the rumors, and we all saw the final episode of Late Night with Conan O’Brien with a tiny tear in our eyes. Let’s face it: Conan O’Brien is a national treasure. You are never unhappy to hear about him, he never ceases to make us laugh even on our worst day, […]

Lilac Sunday at the Arnold Arboretum


I know that I’ve been mentioning spring like crazy in all of my posts, but I cannot get enough of the flowers and the sunshine and the prospect of getting a bit of color to my pale complexion and the fact that I don’t have to brace myself before opening the door to head […]

Janie and Jack Clothing


If you’re anything like me, you have approximately a gazillion friends that are about to have a baby, recently had a baby, are planning another baby, are adopting a baby, etc. Most of these friends have probably registered for what they believe to be their ultimate necessities at a store like Babies R Us […]

Swan Boats in the Boston Public Garden


This past Saturday, the 2011 Swan Boat season officially began and I got that fuzzy pride feeling again about being happy to call Boston “home”.
