As you may have noticed, many of the writers at We Love Beantown have described why they love Boston in relation to where they are from. We have writers from St. Louis, Chicago, Virginia and Buffalo. All came to Boston for school or work, fell in love and decided not to leave.
My experience is a little different.
To me, Boston is a homecoming. A story of unfinished business. The capital of New England, the city that epitomizes all that is good about the Northeast. I was exiled from New England for more than a decade, life and work pulling me in different directions, pulling me away from where my heart has always been. When it was finally my choice to decide where I wanted to be, I came home. To Boston, the only city I want to be.
