Rain, Sun, Rain… rinse repeat it seems like that was the formula for this week in Boston. On the bright side we had about three days where we could have the windows open and the AC off. So it was a nice surprise on a week that was one big blur. Hope your week was better and that you’ve got a great weekend lined up. Catch y’all next week and hope you enjoy this week’s edition of Five for Friday.
