Friday Nights in the City

There was a time, back in our 20s and well before parenthood, when my husband and I would spend our Friday nights in the city sipping martinis at the newest trendy bar chatting about our latest professional and personal pursuits.

My, how our perspectives and priorities have changed since then. While we still enjoy a martini, now our Friday nights in the city are typically spent together with the kids savoring a family dinner in the North End, running through the Greenway, discovering hidden playgrounds, visiting the outdoor food market, listening to subway and street musicians.

They may not be the long, quiet, reflective Friday nights of yesteryear, but these shorter, louder, busier Friday nights with my husband and our three favorite people are just as anticipated and treasured.

Happy Friday to you!
