This week on Marlborough 4.18

^Love this shot of josh I took at Halibut Point last weekend (Rockport, MA)

Happy Friday! I hope everyone has a wonderful Easter weekend and good luck to all those running in the Boston Marathon on Monday. My eyes welled up a little as I watched Copley Square transform once again into a finish line this week on my walks to and from work. To be honest, seeing the whole thing take shape again completely overwhelmed me and all of the memories and feelings from last year - confusion, anger, sadness - just flooded back in a way that I wasn't ready for. Walking by the week and seeing all of the smiling faces, bright banners, and countless tents, you'd never know that at this time last year, Back Bay was essentially a ghost town. All those runners crossing the finish line on Monday (and all those cheering those runners on) will prove that Boston is stronger and more fearless than ever. I've never felt such an overwhelming sense of pride for being a Bostonian than I have this week. I just love this city so much.

PS if you missed it, check out the marathon finish line photo-shoot that the Boston Globe did with survivors this week. So inspiring.
