• Picture Postcards from Niagara Falls

    Last month, my husband and I took a quick overnight trip to Niagara Falls with our dear friends who were visiting from Spain. It truly was such a short visit, and the experience was so heavily visual, that I find myself without any pretty or interesting words to describe it.
