I had no plans this weekend.I tried to get excited about the low key weekend, no agenda except for lots of reading, coffee and barre class.
I tried to get excited about the low key weekend, no agenda except for lots of reading, coffee, and Pure Barre class.
But instantly my social media feeds were filled with cocktails being enjoyed on the beach, boats, decks or a combo of all three.
Wasn’t that what I was supposed to be doing?
Further, Boston Calling, a music festival that hits town twice a year was happening.
I missed the memo on that as well.
Anyways, I didn’t like the funk I was in so I told myself I had to get out of my apartment at least once this weekend, even if it was just to go and get a cup of coffee.
After barre class on Saturday morning, I got a phone call from Burberry on Newbury Street informing me that my early 35th birthday present (and by early, my birthday isn’t until September) from my mother was ready to be picked up. Further, I was informed not to come until after 2pm as they were having an instore event which offered free champagne.
If you have followed me for even 5 minutes on this blog or know me in person, you know I’m a sucker for free booze, especially champagne.
So a few hours later, there I was:
And I felt better.
With the exception of Pure Barre class, I stayed in Sunday with my New York Times and a pot of coffee.
Today, I made myself venture out again. My blogger friend turned in real life friend, Jodi from Jodi Bean’s Blog encouraged me to head to the Boston Common to see the Garden of Flags in honor of Memorial Day.
I’m so glad I did.
This is done annually and I think it’s a wonderful gesture of remembrance and support.
On my way out, I stopped in the Boston Public Garden to check on the ducks aka the Make Way for Ducks statue of Mrs. Mallard and her 8 ducklings. I could only get a picture of a few as the statue this time of year is swamped with children and their parents trying to get pictures.
I wasn’t quite ready to call it a day so I headed to the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum.
I have never been and my student ID gets me in for free so I took advantage.
I enjoyed the courtyard the most.
Finally, I had worked up an appetite and headed to the Yard House in Fenway for a Lamb Burger and an IPA.
Overall, the weekend ended up being pretty good.
I love being around people, but I love solo excursions as well.
What is your favorite thing about going solo?
