A Few Favorite Things

hydrangeas

Mondays are the perfect time for reflecting on all the good things in life, don’t you think? Life can be stressful and fast-moving, and I feel pretty lucky to be able to share a few happy favorites, like the hydrangeas my mom got for ME after my flight home for Mother’s Day was cancelled.

Lately I am also loving the Boston skyline. The below was taken on a photo shoot for work. I really, really love my job, and taking film crews up on the roof of the hotel is pretty awesome.

I have blogged about it in the past, but brunch is one of my favorite things ever. Brunch at Steel & Rye is just as good as it gets. Mint Juleps, Bacon Coconut Donuts, and Smoked Salmon Potato Pancakes? Yes, please!

I love everything about boat season, especially my Sperry Topsiders. These are the most comfy shoes ever. I love what they symbolize – nice weather, change in seasons – but I mostly love the way they feel on my feet. They’re cute too.

Sperry TopsidersNew Boston restaurants are also a favorite. We enjoyed a beet salad and lots of other good things at Merchant in Boston. It was all so good, especially the oysters and beet salad and farro pasta. I can’t wait to try the rest of the menu.

    I love this feel-good post, especially for a Monday! We’re actually going to Portland, Oregon for a few days in June, so I am having a lot of fun finding beer bars and restaurants that we need to try while we’re there.

    I was supposed to go to Steel & Rye for brunch yesterday with some friends but we had to cancel – bummer! I will have to make it back there soon. I am loving the weather lately, too!
