Origin of BPST

How did “Blueberry Porch” come about? When Patty's youngest child, Evan, was four years old, he spent a happy day in Newburyport during Yankee Homecoming. The next morning Evan said, “I had so much fun yesterday! Can we go back to Blueberry Porch?”

This adorable expression became an instant family favorite. The name stuck and 12 years later, BPST reminds us that kids say the cutest things!
