6 Months of Silence

One of the largest points of self realization that I have come to accept is that I sometimes bite off more than I can chew. What sometimes seems like a minor side project, or a great idea, turns into a time suck that eventually falls by the wayside to be abandoned when priorities change.

At the end of the day, I am not a full time blogger.  Hell, I am not even a part time blogger.  Yes, I have a blog, but not always the time to update it.  Just look at some of my past blog posts.  I was gangbusters for a good 6 months, maybe even 8 months.  Then I had to find a real job in my career field.

Photo Tour of Boston’s Fenway Park

Boston is one of our country’s oldest and most storied cities and there is never a shortage of things to do, see or experience while visiting Boston.

One of the things that you MUST do while visiting Boston, (and this goes without saying for pretty much any sports fan) is visit Fenway Park, home of the Red Sox.  For me, it was the opportunity to cross an item off my bucket list. Read more “Photo Tour of Boston’s Fenway Park”

How I Saw the Boston Freedom Trail for Free

I wouldn’t normally consider myself a budget traveler as I do enjoy the luxurious side of travel, but when an opportunity comes up for a great deal, far be it for me to look a gift horse in the mouth.

Upon spending time in Boston, MA for work lately, i quickly became familiar with the Boston Freedom Trail.  There are advertisements for walking tours, bus tours and even themed tours.  With this much advertising, I knew this was something I wanted to experience.

Life Happened

I started this blog with great intentions. A creative outlet, a showcase for some photography, a window into my world. Everything was going swimmingly for the first 6 months of the blog…

And then life happened.

My last update came in August while we were trying to win a Marriott Beach Blogger dream vacation. Suffice to say, we didn’t win, but two of our Team Cocktail friends did! Bittersweet, yes, but glad to see some friends win.   I guess that is either the next best thing to winning, or the worst thing to happen if you lost.  It is a thin, grey line.

Since then, life has been a little crazy:

  • Spent 7 awesome days lounging on the beach in St. Thomas
  • I accepted a new NYC-based job
  • I have spent 6 of the last 9 weeks in Boston, where my company has its HQ and biggest customers
  • Had to learn NYC and Boston mass transit systems
  • Learning the Amtrak service from NYC to Boston and back
  • Spent a week (sick the entire time) in California for some great birthday parties
  • Showed Juliet around Boston for her first time
I know, I know, it is no excuse.  But alas, I have no better one.  I have been so incredibly busy, I still have not processed the photos from our St. Thomas trip (only a few to go! I will finish them today, promise!!).  But alas, there is a silver lining to all of this.

Upcoming Updates
