glass, glee and girlfriends

last week
i met one of my very best friends, amanda
for a girl's day in boston...

our first stop was the MFA
for the Chihuly exhibit
my fave: the persian ceiling

i was literally blown away-
(no pun intended, i promise)
the detail, scale and symmetry
left me with a whole new appreciation for the art of glass blowing.

these enormous chandeliers
designed to hang at eye level
have my wheels turning for a piece in my dining room...

shown with the native american pieces that were the inspiration

we left the MFA, hoped the train to newbury
and thanks to a quick facebook shout-out for recommendations
grabbed lunch at parish cafe

afterwards we (mostly) window shopped
meeting up with a like-minded blogger, blair
for mac and cheese, street-side
slightly obsessed with the up-cycling here of tomato can to wine bucket

and i just have to get in a word about how amazing this whole "blogging world" thing is...
being able to share our lives, inspirations and obsessions with a virtual set of "friends"
is even cooler when you meet those people in real life
and fall into conversations as easy as with your nearest and dearest
pretty. awesome.

girls, let's please set a date for more...)
high-on-life after dinner
we reverted back to our dorky high-school selves
and belted our hearts out
glee: live!

no, we had no shame asking the 12-year-old behind us to snap our photo

and then
i needed a week to recover.

i'm back.

SUCH a fun day and night - loved every minute and would love to do it again! A beach date sounds like a very nice idea right about now! xo
