So Long, Farewell Boston,
but lets have a recap of my Beantown Adventure
As some may know, every year I strive to go to 5 new places every year, and this year I got an early start visiting two new places in one trip. Since this started as a resolution two years ago now, I've done my best to accomplish it. 2010 was a year of adventuring with friends, 2011 became a year of traveling with romance by my side and so for 2012 I decided it was time to have a journey of solidarity, where I could take time for myself to think and grow.

When I left Greensboro, I was looking for answers. Or maybe for a path. And I thought that when those 11 days were over, I'd feel even more anxious then before I left. But instead I found a calmness I hadn't expected to find in a place where every street is busy and every person has a mission.
This week was about being able to start making decisions with a perspective so I surrounded myself everyday with amazing art, beautiful food, and positive energy. It brought a part of my back to life. Plus, there's just nothing better than spending a Saturday afternoon shopping at Bloomingdales in Soho, with one of your best friends, sipping on mango spritzers in wine glasses and chocolate covered strawberries being passed around.
Right now I am the best version of myself. I carry a serenity with me and I have brought back a different kind joy to my life, realizing that distance is only a number of miles, not a number of steps to something else. When we surround ourselves with ideas and people that inspire us, we tend to let our souls free and let ourselves live in a contentment that encourages creation, happiness and love. Going home to greensboro, I can feel myself glowing, ready for anything, and letting what may come into my life with no hesitation.
