5 Reasons I Still Love Boston Even After A Blizzard

Unless you live in a bubble you probably heard that New England got hit with a blizzard that started Monday night and ended this morning!  It was a long storm that dumped over 2 feet in many areas including Boston! If you read my post yesterday you know that I am not a fan of snow. At all. But despite the blizzard I still love Boston.  Here's why. . .

{ONE} The Mystery Man Who Shoveled The Marathon Finish Line
So touching! This is a sacred spot in Boston and such a simple gesture that meant so much to so many.

No words. . . this guy is too much! Check him out on twitter!

Might as well make the best of all that snow right?! Looks like so much fun I just wouldn't want to walk back up the hill!

{FOUR} Nurse Who Walked 2 Miles Despite Blizzard To Get To Work
Click on the link to watch the video/interview with this nurse. She is only one of many who did this. So many dedicated people who work in hospitals and did whatever they had to do to be there including sleeping over the night before on a cot. I'm thankful to the many in my hospital who did this so that I could take the day off! I'm non-essential! HA!

{FIVE} The 2 Guys Who Plowed My Driveway And Helped Me Get My Car Out
Seriously I don't know if I would have gotten my car out in time for work today if they didn't help me out - a lot! They plowed both sides of my car and even helped me shovel! It was so so nice of them to stay and help me when they had been awake for 2 days straight!

Thoughts for Thursday


  1. Aww, the guy at the finish line melted my heart! That sledding picture is gorgeous.

  2. Love that the Christmas wreaths are still up! I don't feel bad now about not taking the decorations down from my house until last weekend. If it is good enough for Boston, it is good enough for my little corner of the world.

    Say 'Hello' to Robby Ross when you see the Red Sox play this year. I am going to miss him. He has a great toothy smile!

  3. All these reasons made me tear up!
