Kelly & Bryan - Married on Columbus Day!
If you have ever worked at a family restaurant before, chances are you probably made a few friends at work. Prior to their professional careers, Kelly and Bryan both waited tables at the infamous Stockyard Steak House in Brighton. Best friends ever since, Kelly and Bryan tied the knot earlier this month in front of their family, friends, and even a few fellow Stockyard alumn!

Bryan gave this card and necklace to Kelly on the morning of their wedding.
Check out this room at Kelly's parents house! Cool paint job huh?
Kelly's makeup provided by her beauty-extraordinaire cousin.
Amanda chose to do her own though!
I love this shot of Kelly right before she left the house!

FYI - I met Amanda and Sandy from working at Cabot's! Sandy and Kelly are sisters. Amanda was Kelly's maid of honor.

Thanks so much to Kelly and Bryan for having me at your wedding!

The New Nonantum Boxing Club - Open House
After three years operating out of a local gym, the Nonantum Boxing Club was ready to move out. The club now has a great new space to call their own. Started by a group of friends, the Nonantum Boxing Club offers classes for all age groups and experience levels. At the open house were two boxing icons, State Auditor Joe Denucci and North End legend Tony DeMarco.

With Denucci and DeMarco are the guys who started the boxing club together.

These guys spent a long time getting the club ready for this day and it really came out great! A giant ring is currently on order!

DeMarco and Denucci talked about the importance of community and fitness.

Denucci said without boxing he would not be where he is today.
My first attempt at boxing happened in June when my USMC-trainer told me that I was doing it. Boxing wasn't something I had ever considered, but it didn't take long to realize what an amazing workout and fun sport it is!
I'm looking forward to becoming better at it in the coming months!

The Nonantum Boxing Club is now located at 75 Adams Street in Newton, MA. Classes start at only $20!

Celebrating 1 year of Kevin Youkilis Hits for Kids
One of Boston's hottest restaurants - Avila - hosted the one year anniversary celebration of Kevin Youkilis Hits for Kids last night! The who's who of Boston showed to honor the accomplishments of Kevin and Enza's charity, Hits for Kids. In just one short year the charity has raised nearly one million dollars for underfunded children's charities in the Boston area. That's worth celebrating!

If you are looking to give back or try something new, I really recommend finding a special charity that means something to you. Hits for Kids has brought together a great group of people and I look forward to our second year!

We hope you can make it to this years Crackin' It Up at Mohegan Sun on November 29th!

Hotel Commonwealth and the 2008 Charles Regatta
There is nothing that says Boston better than the Charles Regatta! Well, except for the marathon... This past weekend was the 2008 Head of the Charles Regatta. With thousands of competitors and their families here for the week, Boston's in full force!

Another Boston favorite of mine is Hotel Commonwealth. Located in the heart of Kenmore Square, Hotel Commonwealth certainly never sleeps! As the official hotel of the Regatta, Hotel Commonwealth hosted a tent party for some special clients and guests.
The food was provided by Eastern Standard.

If you've never been to Eastern Standard, you must go! It's connected to Hotel Commonwealth and they have a GREAT lunch and were voted one of the BEST bars in America by Esquire Magazine! Did I mention their oyster bar?
It's never too cold out for champaign!
