Baby, It's Cold Outside...

We began our time away together in Boston, being that the place we're staying in the Berkshires comes available Sunday night. We've never been here before, so this is super exciting.

The hotel we're staying in is round. I think that's so cool. It was built in the 1800's and was used to house the lamp oil back then. It's so quaint -- I just love it. It also has small full size beds which I love even more because that means I sleep nice and close to Larry Shrodes. :) Especially in the chill. Oh my! I forgot how cold it is in other parts of the world. I have been wearing three layers on top, including a ski jacket, hat, scarf and gloves. It's been a long time. I'm a Floridian now. I can't remember the last time I wore panty hose, and most days I wear open toe shoes even in winter.

We met up with a college friend, Pastor Lou Zinnanti, yesterday. He and his wife, Pastor Kris Zinnanti, are the co-pastors of Christ the Rock Church here in Boston. Lou took us on a tour yesterday of downtown Boston. We loveeeeeeeeeed it! We took the train and went to Quincy Market, Old North Church, and basically hit most of the downtown landmarks. We also enjoyed some phenomenal clam chowder, lobster rolls, and cannoli's. So good.  Here are some photos of our first two days here:

This girl is a beauty queen. just sayin'!
Without a doubt, the greatest part for me is just being with my family. I can hardly wait until Jordan gets here! He had to come a little later than us with some commitments back in Tampa but he arrives Sunday. I'm counting the moments til' he arrives!
