52 Weeks of Happy - Week 12

Yesterday, I traveled to Boston to visit one of my nieces who goes to school in the city.  My happy things for the week are centered around my visit.  I took the train down and it was very grey when I got on which had me worried but as I got farther south, the sun showed the clouds it was boss and we had some lovely sunshine. 

After many trips into Boston over the years and walking by the Boston Public Library, I finally got to see the John Singer Sargent murals.  If you are interested in their history, you can read about them here.
The library building is fabulous with the most amazing mosaic ceilings in the main entrance hall and this really cool ceiling in one of the rooms off the 2nd floor.

After seeing the murals, we had lunch at PF Changs in the Prudential Center and then walked around the shops. 

Coming out of Lord & Taylor to cross back to get to California Pizza Kitchen, we saw this gorgeous old building surrounded by the more modern skyline.  The sunlight on the bricks and the black wrought iron was stunning.

Spending time with my nieces always makes me happy but when I can combine it with a piece of the Red Velvet cake served at California Pizza Kitchen, I'm over the moon happy.  I have yet to have a better piece of Red Velvet and it's worth the train trip down to Boston!  I must see if they sell this online.....
