Meet Our Newest Contributor: Adrienne Pomeroy
We are thrilled to welcome Adrienne Pomeroy to The Boston Day Book team. Adrienne recently moved to Brookline from North Carolina, where she lived for nine years! She chronicles new experiences on her lifestyle blog. As Adrienne continues to explore the Greater Boston area, she’ll be sharing favorite restaurants and documenting other experiences as she navigates around a new city. Welcome, Adrienne!
You recently moved to Boston! As a newcomer, is there anything surprising about life in Boston?
I’ve been pleasantly surprised by how wonderful and kind people are here in Boston. I think the Northeast gets a bad rap with the idea that people are too busy to be kind. I haven’t found that to be true at all in the eight months that I’ve lived here. Everyone has been so helpful and I have found many ways to meet wonderful people.
Describe yourself in three words.
Compassionate, funny and driven.
You have 12 free hours in Boston, what would you do?
Whoop! 12 whole hours! I would sleep late, take a class at Pure Barre Brookline, grab a quick bite and latte at Tatte Bakery, take the T to the Boston Common, and enjoy the beautiful surroundings there. Do a bit of shopping on Newbury Street. Grab drinks and dinner in the North End and end with cannolis from Mike’s Pastry.
Tell us a bit more about your blog – how did you start it, etc?
I started my blog about 6 years ago under the name La Vita e Bella which means Life in Beautiful in Italian. It was just a place to share my thoughts and reviews of various places. Through the years as my life has changed and as I have evolved as a person, I wanted to reach a broader audience. Earlier in 2015, I changed it to my name, Adrienne Pomeroy so I could do just that. I love to share anything and everything. Living in Boston has allowed me to create more interesting content and be part of awesome communities such as the Boston Bloggers group and The Boston Day Book.
