Recently I had a job interview in Boston scheduled for 6pm. I thought, “I should make a day of it since I’d be going in so late” My sister quickly hopped on board with the idea. We both had the day off from our current jobs and were eager to explore the city for what it had to offer. As we originally live a good hour away from the city we don’t have time to make it a habit of visiting.We started in Brighton and ended up deciding to go to the Science Museum. Neither of us had gone in what felt like years so we knew there was much to explore.
To start off: this experience has been the first beer festival experience I have ever had the pleasure of attending. I kid not, I traveled last weekend to Boston at the Greenway for the Sam Adams #ForTheLoveOfBeer Festival and had the time of my life. It was amazing, remarkable, and eye opener.
In the beginning the event on Facebook stood out from all the other casual events that Facebook often suggests. The site had noted that I had recently gone on a beer tour at Harpoon Brewery giving the impression that Facebook should suggest this event to me. Facebook was correct, I had seen the event and immediately decided that whatever I was doing I would drop everything to attend this event. The beer community is something I admire greatly. I love the style glasses, the various beer flavors, the uniqueness of it all. Beer isn’t just beer, it’s an interest, an informational lifestyle some take up for the good or the bad. In this case there’s just something about a shared interest that makes people nice to anyone and everyone.
Truthfully I have no idea where to begin. I suppose I should begin with an apology. This is an apology for not staying true to my word. The purpose of this blog was to create entries about enjoying life. This was to remind readers that there is more out in the world than just your front porch.

I thought I’d take the time to announce that I’ve returned from hibernation. The cold weather seems to be going away so I feel as though it’s an appropriate time to come out of hiding now. I hope to go on some new trips soon but for now it’s just a whirlwind adventure of the big city of Boston.
I also updated the look of the blog so I hope everyone enjoys that much better. If anyone has any ideas feel free to contact me.
I’m all ears. Also if you haven’t yet, follow me on Twitter! @liveonyourtoes
My trip was a little different though, I took a family trip out to the strip so I remembered every bit of it. The lights, the weather, the people, the buildings, everything was marvelous and spectacular I could not believe it. It was all too much to soak in for just 4 days.

I took a week to travel to the beautiful Niagara Falls in New York/Canada and what did I see? Just that, the beautiful rushing of water and creating a wonderful site. It was a trip I’ll never forget, and I recommend everyone at least once to take time to go out there. When I saw the Falls I saw more than just water falling off a cliff, I saw a nature made landmark that brings people together.
While I was camping in New York my boyfriend and I decided we would just walk over into Canada over the Rainbow Bridge. As I walked over the bridge I soon noticed the better view of the Falls was on the Canadian side rather than the American side.Despite our poor view I noticed a number of Canadians going the opposite way, they were going to America to see the Falls. I thought that was rather odd because clearly the better view was in Canada. Continue reading “What Do You See When You Look At The Falls?”
