There is no doubt that Monday's tragedy affected this city and the lives of everyone who calls it home, has visited, or cares about someone who lives here. Only three days later it still feels like a whirlwind of ups and downs. Staying glued to the news was killing me inside so instead of talking about Monday, let's talk about Boston. After high school, I moved here from Florida not knowing a single person. Six years later I have made this place my home and I truly could not be happier here. I love this city and I love the friends I have made here. I just wanted to share some of the love that I've been lucky enough to capture here over the years and remind those who are thinking of Boston that this city really is an incredible place.
