The Sun Has Set on the Weekend...

The sun has set on the weekend, Monday blues have passed and we're full force into the week. When everything begins to move at hyper speed as the week commences, it's so fun (and relaxing) to look back through my phone's camera roll and recap, especially when it was an exceptional weekend. Looking back on these past few days fills my heart because my parents were in town and we had a blast. The best part was that their trip to Boston was a complete surprise (I received flight confirmation information from them on Tuesday for their arrival on Thursday morning)! Their time here was filled with walks, brunches, sunsets, a whole lot of coffee, sightseeing, eating, shopping, and most importantly tons of quality time. I had such a good time that I didn't check email for four days and even managed to keep my DSLR out of my hands for all but a few hours. In these few hours, we witnessed one of the most breathtaking sunsets I've seen in Boston all summer. My mom, dad, and I sat on the Esplanade overlooking the Charles River and drank coffee while watching the sunset. It couldn't have gotten better than that. Check out a few shots I got during our time on the Esplanade!

I loved every minute of this past weekend and wish I could've captured more moments like these; but, sometimes, its nice to get out from behind the lens and enjoy experiences for what they are. Thank you, Mom and Dad, for such an amazing four days!
