Hmmm that doesn’t sound right, are you sure you’re in Boston?

Maybe it's a different Boston

As someone originally from the west coast who has been here for around 6 years, Boston people are way kinder than they give themselves credit for. Maybe not as smiley as Californians, but there is more to being nice than putting on a fake smile. I find people to be much more real here in general.

My wife and I are considering planning a trip to Tulum, Mexico for late July. She’s slightly reserved in asking her employer (she works at a dental practice) if it’s okay to take time off with the concern her employer may feel off-put by the request. I personally hate the thought of someone else restricting my ability to make my own decisions, but also want to be contieous of others concerns as well. I feel at some point we all will be in a similar situation - to where we want to go do...
