Spring is just around the corner. Left the house early this morning and walked around and met up with a friend for lunch. He recently bought a home in our old neighborhood and I'm so jealous - I would give anything to be able to live downtown again. I took a few pictures of his place while I was there but it was so cloudy that I'm afraid I didn't do it justice. He's having renovations done on the place this spring and summer so I'll have to come back then and post some "after" shots. I love old houses.

Also went to, hands down, one of the best restaurants here in Boston for lunch. I'd never heard of it before (it's called Oishii), but man, it was some of the best food I've had in a long time. It almost makes you not want to go on with your life after because you know things can't get better than what you just had.
