Originally from a small town in Upstate NY, I decided it was time to check out the city life and made my way to Boston after college. I spent just enough time living it up in the city to find my husband and get city life out of my system. We soon welcomed our daughter into the world and I found myself missing the suburban life I knew and loved growing up. We packed our bags and bought a house out in the suburbs South of Boston. With a huge backyard, neighborhood brimming with kids and warm community, we knew we were home.
I spent several years in the marketing world and left my job for the glamorous job of raising our beautiful new daughter. A few years later, our son was born and I was all of a sudden an SUV driving, diaper bag wielding, playground hopping stay at home mom. When I was not aimlessly roaming the aisles of Target, recovering from the fumes of the diaper genie or hopelessly searching the house for Barbie’s lost high heel, I was searching for new places for our family to visit.
I have always been an adventure seeker. I love seeing new things, trying new things, going new places. With my kids in tow, I now had the time to do exactly that. I turned each day into an adventure and looked for new places to explore far and wide. While I love Boston, I found it refreshing to see how many adventures we could find without trekking downtown. I began posting our little excursions on Facebook and found that friends were asking questions about where we had been and then following suit. I thought to myself, this must be an opportunity.
I’m so excited to be sharing our finds and hope they will bring new adventures to you and your family as well so that you can see how great life can be South of Boston!
Disclosure: I write about things I love! Places we’ve visited, adventures we’ve had, foods we’ve eaten, products we’ve used. These are my honest, unbiased thoughts and opinions. If I didn’t love it and want to tell the world about it, it’s not being featured on this site. Generally, I write about what I want. Every now and then, however, I am contacted by a company or place that wants me to visit. Sometimes I accept free things, like tickets to a place, complimentary services or a product. Other times, I work with a company to help promote it for real money. But most of the time, I just write about what I want to write about.
