This Is Where I’m From

Of course you all know what happened in Boston on Monday, I don’t even have words……

I don’t want to post how I feel about what happened, or  where I was and what I was doing, or what I think we should all do about it- that’s all personal, and very close to home. About 5 minutes from home actually, because I grew up 5 minutes outside the city.

Instead, I want to share some awesome times I’ve had in Boston, the things that come to mind when I think of my city- and it’s how I hope you think about it too.

Without further ado, here’s a whole mess of Stephanie’s Boston Good Times Throughout The Years (note: there’s obviously going to be a whole lot of Red Sox in this pic-fest).

See- happy fun times! Best friends! Food and drinks and music and comedy! Boston, you’re my home. And where ever you are, it can be your home too. Just turn on some Sweet Caroline, drop your “R’s,” and for cryin’ out loud learn how to drive in a rotary!

  1. Love this Stephanie! I have wonderful memories of visits there..Red Sox game with your mom, my first sub sandwich, dog track with Uncle Albert, Building 19 with Auntie Ellie, walking the Freedom Trail, eating at this awesome seafood place in Winthrop, staying at your Nonna and Papa’s, St. Anthony feast day, babysitting you and Ryan one afternoon, fireworks, eating at the Pier, your parents wedding..many more.

  2. I’ve always wanted to visit Boston! I love these pictures and things you described. You are a strong example of positivity in this world 🙂

  3. Thank you Stephania this is great. Don’t forget that if your great grandparents did not leave that mountain village in Italy you would not be living in this country.

  4. That picture of us with the Minutemen was from Patriots Day / Marathon Monday, not Opening Day. Further evidence that the holiday has always been the Greatest Day of the Year and will CONTINUE to be celebrated as such, because Boston will always stand strong.
