Celebrating Chinese New Year With Boston Mayor Marty Walsh!

My niece, Lauren (right behind me in the light blue coat and right next to the Mayor), wants to major in Chinese next year in college.  When learning the weather on the day of the Chinese New Year parade would be in the thirty-degree range, I invited everyone who might want to come.  (In past years, the weather has been frigid or snowy).  While we were walking along, we saw Mayor Marty Walsh.  His aide noticed our excitement and asked if we'd like a picture.  Voila!

Need Hiking Boots?  Check out this pair!

Back in the 1970's, I had a most favorite pair of navy blue suede hiking boots with red laces.  Now that hiking boots are on trend, I set out to find myself a similar pair.  I found a perfect pair on Amazon!
Tomorrow's weather looks like a snowstorm so it could be the first snow day of the season ~ not bad considering it's March!  Have a wonderful week, and thank you for visiting the blog today!
