This week on Marlborough 2.13

^ (Clockwise: Mac is struggling finding places to pee these days/ a snowy Marlborough street/ a perfect Vday treat/ snowbanks taller than me!)

OMG guys! I can't believe this is my first Friday post in...almost a month. Between a week out of the office at ALT Summit, followed by an extended trip to Florida due to cancelled/delayed flights, followed by several snow days, I haven't had a chance to even catch my breath. But for the first time in the last few weeks, I can safely say it is NOT snowing, but we are supposed to get yet another blizzard this weekend, so the sunny skies will be short-lived. Snow is one of my favorite things about living in New England, but come on, this is getting a little ridiculous.

But anyway, happy Friday, and President's Day weekend, and Valentine's Day! I wrote a little bit about my thoughts on Vday last year (as well as some cute DIY gift ideas), and I find myself feeling the same way right now. Mostly, this year I was just excited that the holiday gave me an excuse to go out to a nice dinner out in the city with my fiance, where we talked about the crazy fact that this is the last year we won't be married to our Valentines. We have a big year ahead of us, and I'm thankful that Valentine's Day, even in all of it's over-commercialized glory, gave us the excuse to take a night and reflect on that. We went out this Wednesday night so that we could celebrate before the crowds and actually get a reservation. And if you are wondering, we trudged over snowbanks to the North End for dinner at Trattoria il Panino (which was incredible) followed by Cannolis at Mike's Pastry. It was the best food (and company) a girl could ask for.

And here are some fun links from around the web this week!
