Have you been to Assembly Row yet?
No? Well, you should visit.
Assembly Row is a development in Somerville, MA that is home to great restaurants, the nicest movie theatre in town (it has a bar!), Legoland, outlet shopping, etc. but the best part – in my opinion – would be the community events that take place there.
Food Truck Festivals. Pet-a-palooza. August Music Series. (maybe a Holiday music series coming soon!) Riverfest.
There’s a great splashpad and park for the littles. Plenty of parking.
There’s always something going on over there, lots of fun – I try to get to as many events as I can at Assembly Row and it never disappoints.
See you there?
So I started this blog upon request. A high school friend had started up an online resource for mothers and asked if I would contribute as a blogger.
I had never blogged before. I was flattered.
I contributed a few entries and this site has lay dormant ever since.
A lot has happened since I last logged in. Things I had thought to blog about but would get to anxious or angry. But sometimes your greatest strengths come from those trying times. I’d like to think that I am stronger.
I’m a little late but I’m now reading Jeff Bauman’s ‘Stronger’. It’s fantastic. Jeff is your typical Boston kid. Works a regular guy job, loves his family, tough but the Red Sox can bring him to tears. Jeff is like anyone you’d meet on the street, except he’s not. He’s extraordinary. His story was told to show the evil ones out there that he’s stronger than ever. It reminds us all about the good people out there. The people that are more impressive and more important, who the true heroes are. The things that I want to think about when helicopters overhead or locals doing donuts in the Verizon parking lot or kids setting off fireworks on the bike path wake me in cold sweats from a sound sleep.
Since the Watertown shootout on 4-19-2013, my life has changed in many ways. I’ve met a lot of inspiring people. Every now and then someone will ask where to find me online.
I will be updating this page more often with fundraiser information and any other event or story that I feel like sharing. Thanks for continuing to read along!
