a great day

When these photos were taken, I couldn’t have been happier!

(Sorry if this is TMI…) A few weeks prior I had discovered a suspicious lump in my breast, and was anxious to see my doctor to find out what it was.  Breast cancer runs in my family, so of course I was concerned.  When I went in for the appointment, I was expecting that I would be told that it was nothing.

Instead, the doctor ordered me an ultrasound and a mammogram, which were scheduled for a week later.

After what felt like the longest week ever I had the tests done, and was thrilled to find out that it was a benign cyst.  Yay!

FYI – the mammogram was quite painful, and I’m glad that I don’t have to go through that again until I’m 40! (that is, unless any other little bumps pop up)

Dave worked a half-day that day so he could accompany me to my appointment (and coincidentally also works at the same hospital where I got the tests done), so afterwards we decided to grab lunch then take a little walk around Faneuil Hall.

I have to be honest that I don’t love how this high-waisted skirt looks on my body.  I think it’s due to the fact that my torso is a little short as is, so wide waistband makes it look even shorter…but this skirt is SO comfy and was quite cheap so I’m not complaining 🙂

Hope you have a great weekend!

Back in August 2015 I took some photos at Depot Park in Bedford, MA.   I love this location at the end of the Minuteman Bike Trail mostly because of the vintage passenger car that’s parked there.  It was once part of an old Boston commuter line which ran for over 100 years from 1873-1977.

One more post from my trip to NYC last month!

My mom and I were walking around Central Park, and we were trying to figure out where to go next.  I grew up on Long Island which means I have been to NYC more times than I can count, so we don’t typically do many touristy things.

However, my mom said to me, “I think the Marilyn Monroe subway grate isn’t too far from here…”  I don’t know what made her think of that out of the blue, but I thought it was a great idea!
