We Heart Boston
On Monday, I posted about the magic of the Boston Marathon. I talked about how it is one of my favorite days in Boston – because the runners are achieving something truly remarkable and because the city comes together in a swell of support to cheer them on. I had no idea that the day would end in such tragedy.
I am so sad. My heart aches for the friends and families of the victims of the explosions.
I am also devastated that the Boston Marathon will now be associated with fear and loss for many.
I’m not giving up on you, Boston! I wasn’t born and raised here so I don’t have the charming accent, the die hard devotion to the Red Sox, or the innate understanding of wacky winter parking “rules”, but I do have a special place in my heart for Boston.
Boston is where I met and fell in love with my husband. It is where I fell even more in love with my son, Owen. It is also where I found my fabulous business partners, Jill and Jodi, and gloss48 was born (perhaps gloss will have an accent).
I refuse to let this act of terrorism darken my feelings about Boston or Marathon Monday. The Boston Marathon will continue to be a magical event for me!
