We had a pretty heavy snow fall today in Boston. I almost blew away in a snow drift this morning while walking across the bridge to work in Fort Point Channel. But this afternoon I came home early and the snow had settled on the tree lined streets of our neighborhood in the South End. My boyfriend and I decided to go for a walk to our favorite garden. Bundled and booted, we headed out into the snowy streets. Everyone’s got their winter kit that gets them through the worst. Hand knit mittens, mad bomber hat, long puffy coat. Mine includes my mum’s Bean boots from the 80’s. They are perfectly worn in and cozy. I hope to someday pass them on to my daughter. As we all know, Beans don’t fail so this pair will certainly still be in top shape for all her winter adventures.
