Little Things: Sand Sculpture Festival

Every summer on Revere Beach there is a huge sand sculpting festival. Tons of sand sculptures come and spend days making insanely amazing creations that are then voted on by the masses that come to view them. I finally made it down there and -- wow wow wow -- beyond amazing!!
Having grown up on the beach I have always had an appreciation for sand sculptures and these were just insane. Each piece was more amazing then the next. The textures and patterns and designs were just so impressive.

So glad I finally got down to the beach for this!

Summer in the City

Wooh! There's nothing like summer in the city...
Someone in a rush...in the greatest city in the world...

{Schuyler Sisters -- Hamilton}

I had a 2 day training in Brooklyn last week and stayed with mom in White Plains which meant I got to commute in and out of the city for two days.

That commuter life is no joke! It wasn't that bad of a commute in truth. Express train into the city and then a quick subway ride over to Brooklyn. But it was crazy to realize I was hopping on a train in one "world" and really emerging in another.

Both afternoons I walked back into Manhattan over the Brooklyn Bridge. Such a great walk, albeit a bit crowded with tourists. It was fun to feel like I was in the city as a professional not a tourist and just go from point A to B.

While I am in no means a New Yorker nor do I have the desire to be one, it's nice to know I can crush that city life commute!

Little Things Thursday: Books

I love books. I love displaying the books I've read. My shelves are a display of spines of various colors, sizes, and textures. 
Moving and packing these treasures up has allowed me to really explore each tome. Hold each book as I pack it up.  Now to unpack them when the time comes as the next chapter begins!

Movin' On Up

Well we're movin on up, to the east side.
To a deluxe apartment in the sky.

{The Jefferson Lyrics}
Well. It's crazy to say, but I am moving for the first time in 7 years. 

Yup. I am about 6 weeks out from marking seven years in Boston and in all that time have lived in place. 

But that is changing.

Time for a new home. I've found an amazing apartment. With many new bits I've never had in seven years. While moving may not be fun and it is hard to leave the little home I've had for 7 years, a new chapter is unfolding and it should be awesome once the boxes are unpacked!
