100th Post

Wow, this is my 100th post on Katie From Boston. I started this blog as a way to express myself, I was feeling lost like I was floating aimlessly from day to day. I needed a creative outlet.

Hence the birth of this blog. It is not a particularly exciting or unique story, I know tons of bloggers who started because they needed a creative outlet. But today this blog is much more than a creative outlet to me. It has become a very important part of my life, the opportunities I have had, the friends I have made through blogging! The past 9 months, when I really threw myself into blogging, have been incredible. I promise to keep at it and to keep bringing you the best possible content and to always share my honest opinion.

So you tell me, what content do you want to see for posts 101-200? More travel? More food? Less of anything? What was your favorite post and what are you dying to know? Leaving me your questions, suggestions, comments, and criticisms in the comment section below.

And thank you for tagging along on this journey with me!

Strolling into November

Some people love Halloween, they love getting dressed up, eating candy, watching spooky movies. I’m just not one of those people, I like Halloween okay but it isn’t my favorite. October may be the prettiest month of the year but November is definitely my favorite. For starters my birthday is this month, I’m going to be 22. I remember when I was 16 and I decided that 22 was old enough and I would stop aging at 22. As old as middle schoolers make me feel I still feel so young. There are still so many things I want to accomplish in life and 22 is just the beginning. November also means it is time for Thanksgiving, time to eat turkey, mashed potatoes, corn and stuffing! I am excited for the next month and I hope you are too.

Peeping Leaves and History

National Parks are often over looked, but they’re pretty awesome! For starters they’re FREE! And beautiful! Especially in this gorgeous season when the world turns gold for us. I visited the Minuteman National Historical Park this weekend to check out the foliage and all the adorable old farm houses that still stand in the park. There are great walking trails and plenty to see! Two visitor centers at either end of the trail, I recommend parking at the North Bridge Visitors Center, there is plenty to see from a gorgeous colonial house with a patio overlooking the Concord River and then you can walk down to North Bridge! I started at the Minute Man Visitors Center at the other end and saw the Jacob Whittemore House and then drove down Marrett Road stopping at the various attractions in the park, there are plenty of FREE parking lots along Marrett Road! Such a great day I definitely recommend you go visit before the foliage is gone!

Fourth of July: the most preppy holiday of all! 

Happy Fourth of July everyone!! It was such a beautiful weekend here in New England I hope you all got to spend sometime outside! I spent the weekend with some friends and then went to my aunts annual Fourth of July party today! Boy did I get burnt!!

I have always loved the Fourth of July and every year I love scrolling through other people’s photos from their various parties. No matter what your personal style the Fourth of July definitely brings out the preppy in all of us. For one the colors red, white and blue pure Americana for the whole weekend! It’s an excuse to get nautical! This year I rocked a seersucker shift dress with embroidered anchors. It was a huge hit!

It was such a fun weekend spent at the pool! Happy birthday America!
