BF and I are doing everything they tell you not to do when moving into a new home– buying allofthethings right away. What I like to call treasure hunting is quickly becoming one of our favorite activities, as we fill the new place with fun and unique decor and knickknacks. The Sunday of Columbus Day weekend was TOO beautiful to spend inside with football (sorry Pats), so we hopped in the car and took a spontaneous drive up to Concord to do a little antique shopping.
If you paid attention in your high school history and literature classes, you may remember that Concord was home to Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry David Thoreau, and the site of [half of] the Battles of Lexington and Concord. But in addition to its rich history (and, therefore, plentiful museums), it’s also home to numerous antique shops, adorable taverns, and the gorgeous Walden Pond.
[ travel summary ]
who:: So weird but I guess he isn’t sick of me yet?
what:: Strolling, shopping, and soaking in history.
when:: Fall = OH THE NEW ENGLAND FOLIAGE
where:: Shop at Thoreauly Antiques & Antique Therapy. Visit Louisa May Alcott’s Orchard House and the Ralph Waldo Emerson House. Take a short drive out of town to Walden Pond. And while we missed this, everyone seems to SWEAR by Reasons to Be Cheerful for ice cream.
wear:: If you’ll just accept spontaneity as an excuse for my un-thought-out comfy casual outfit, that’d be great. BUT, I do love a good boyfriend jean + cozy knit sweater.
