Good Morning Lacquered Lifers! Hope everybody had a good weekend. I was in Boston celebrating the engagement of two of my dearest friends from college, and Saturday I took the opportunity to stroll around Beacon Hill. Located between Boston Common, the Massachusetts State House, and the Charles River, Beacon Hill is one of the most historic (and beautiful) neighborhoods of the city. Now a National Historic Landmark District, the development of Beacon Hill began in the early years of the nineteenth century with Federal-style town homes designed by famous American architect Charles Bulfinch. Despite the chilly weather Beacon Hill’s brick facades looked especially beautiful this weekend against the backdrop of the city’s late fall foliage in colors of yellow and orange. As Boston College alumni, we all truly enjoyed being back and reminiscing about a time when we called this city home. A big thank you and congratulations Libby and Ryan for bringing us all back together in Beantown!
