It’s a New England thing- once you’ve lived there, there’s no where else you would rather call home. Even though it’s cold and dreary, expensive and crowded, there’s a reason people are drawn to it. I met Jill and Alyssa when I was living in Boston years ago and I am fortunate that our paths have crossed again while making a pit stop in Georgia. We have become great friends and they are close enough that if I ever need to be reminded how wonderful Boston is, Jill and Alyssa are just a short drive away. I was more than honored to celebrate this day with them back up north in Salem, MA. It was a beautiful, emotional and nostalgic weekend set against the backdrop of where we all call home.
