12 Bars of Christmas

On Saturday, Chris’ sister, Charity, and her friend, Rachael, came to Boston for a bar crawl titled, The 12 Bars of Christmas. The event was hosted by Team Velox Rota (Boston based cycling team and 501-c-3 registered non-profit raising money for MS) and the money raised by our drinking benefits the National MS Society.  We had a blast strolling around Boston in our Christmas attire!

Boston Marathon 2015

The evening before the race, Casey, Julie and I met up with Rachel, Dearon and Sam for dinner at Sunset Grille & Tap in Allston.  Afterwards we put Casey to bed, but the rest of us gathered our bikes and headed to Hopkinton for the midnight marathon ride.  We lucked out with the weather for the bike ride, and there was a great turn-out once again.  Unfortunately we missed the memo and started riding around 12:30am which was still before the peloton came through, but everyone had a great time regardless!

Oh, and Tori’s birthday party, spent listening to country music at Loretta’s Last Call, was lots of fun:

New Camera! (feat: Juno)

I’m starting to learn all about the camera that we got for our trip: the Sony RX100 II.
We’re so fancy! Now we just need to learn what aperture is…

To show you that I’ve been practicing with it, here are some pictures of the blizzard of 2015, aka Juno.

Here is you in the whiteout:

Oh wait, that’s just you inside brushing your teeth when the camera is set to black and white mode. Continue reading New Camera! (feat: Juno)
