The kid who just last week told me that breakfast wasn’t important is certainly enjoying the morning meal this week.
We love hotel breakfasts. Always have and always will. I may stick to oatmeal but gosh I love when it’s unlimited and positioned next to the fruit display.
I know I sound so cliché when I say we really need to unplug more often but we do. I can’t begin to tell you how nice it was to not have a working internet connection for my computer in our room. Although we didn’t have much down time at all, I liked not opening my laptop 97% of this trip. It does wonders for the soul when you are away from your computer and disconnected from your usual working/reading/browsing/connected life.
I haven’t even had to worry much about the battery life of my phone this week either while we are out in the city because I haven’t taken my phone out much at all. Aside from taking a few pictures here and there, I really liked keeping my phone in my bag!
But I needed a picture of myself while shopping in my rain boots and wearing my Vinyaa scarf. I still don’t know how to wear that thing but I so love it and never leave home without it.
I can’t help but think about the times I came to Boston as a kid and even during college when cell phones really weren’t a thing and smart phones for sure were something we couldn’t even conceptualize at the time. In some ways, I really miss those free and disconnected moments that we didn’t even realize we had.
Is it really New Year’s Eve? It feels like yesterday that I was writing my New Year’s recap from our night in the city at Sugar Factory. Time sure flies.
We are headed home later today, let’s pray for less traffic than we had heading up here the other day. There’s only so much sports radio I can listen to (it was fun when the stations switched from NY sports to Red Sox nation sports talk) and singing I can do while driving (Meatloaf’s Paradise by Dashboard Light was a good one!) before I slowly start to lose my mind.
Have a very Happy New Year!

How often do you “unplug”?
What are you doing for New Year’s Eve? Totally overrated holiday if you ask me 🙂
