I’m going to Boston this weekend! Which I’m super excited about; however, I’ve been really stressed out about coordinating this trip. I have a list of about 10 people that I want to see while I’m up there that all live in different parts of the city and when you say you live in Boston you don’t actually have to live in Boston, which I’m not judging anybody for – it’s just a Boston thing I don’t understand. The reason I was really worried about it was because I thought I was going to have a huge suitcase full of stuff for Thanksgiving, but I was able to throw a bunch of it in Kristine’s car when she came to visit, so now I’m feeling better about being a wandering nomad for a while. Anyway, if you’re in Boston and want to hang out, let me know. My guess is I’ll be in a coffee shop reading blog posts.
It’s been quite the week of ups – California, Disneyland, seeing my best friends from middle school – but you knew about all of those already if you’ve been reading along this week, so I’m going to pick something that you probably didn’t know. I went to see Lake Street Dive in concert again on Wednesday night with a few friends and they were wonderful. So, so wonderful. The dynamic between them all is awesome and who’s not going to love a group that has a super sexy jazzified lead singer, a chick rocking out on the upright bass, a guy who switches between the guitar and trumpet constantly, and a philly-originated spirited drummer. If you’ve never heard of them start here.
There’s two things that I want to tell y’all about. First of all, Photography Concentrate is having a Black Friday giveaway AND they’re offering 40-60% off of all their tutorials. It’s kind of ridiculous and wonderful. Second – be on the look out for a Chrystina Noel black Friday sale as well, I’m pretty stoked about it.

Paper on Pine is hosting a gift wrapping class on Friday, December 5 from 5-7pm that’s free. You bring 3 wrapped boxes and they will help you make the occasion more festive. DiBruno Brothers is hosting a cheese crawl around the city on Saturday, December 6 from 12pm-4pm. I unfortunately won’t be able to make it to that one, but I really, really wish I could.
