Jac o' lyn Murphy: There is no place like Boston

There is no place like Boston

I was honored to live in Boston, even though it was for just 3 short months.

I had ALWAYS wanted to live on the East Coast
and finally got the chance in 1997.
My husband and I were newly engaged and working for The Ritz-Carlton.
Temporary jobs opened for both of us in Boston before permanent positions in Atlanta.
We jumped at the chance to go.

It was summer, we explored the city and
traveled to Martha's Vineyard and Maine on weekends,
 returning "home" to Boston during the week.

We lived at the Ritz,
(the original Ritz-Carlton that opened in 1927)
 with all of its character and charm.
A beautiful old hotel off Newbury Street, historic and grand, with actual Elevator Operators!
We lived it up, going to restaurants and bars, without a care in the world.

I have never lived in any city where I felt so instantly at home.
The history, the people, the setting, the food, the excitement.

Thank you Boston for magical memories.
What a special place you are...
