With glowing hearts we see thee rise…

The work week is over. Thank God. Now, I’m recovering from a stressful week in the newsroom by going over my vacation pictures.

I suspect I’ll need another break from work. Soon.

On our Buffalo trip, I gave my new passport a workout. This one has my married name on it. Sadly, the border guards didn’t feel like stamping it with a Canada stamp. In retrospect, I should have asked for one.

Bizarre Question at the Border: What do you do for a living?

I think I saw the border guard raise his eyebrows when I squeaked out: “News Producer.”

Wine Tasting in Canada
Hooray for our moms! Terri and Linda took the girls to the beach while we went on a day trip to Niagara-by-the-Lake with Kaine and Missy. Plus Mark rocked as our DD for our personal wine tasting tour.


I was tickled to add some tasty red wines from Jackson Triggs and Hillebrand wineries to our collection.

Crowded by the Falls
I also had to see Niagara Falls again. This tourist spot on the Canadian side has become a pilgrimage of sorts for my Buffalo vacations. The misty air feels refreshing on a hot day. The majestic views are free. I’m happy to join the lemmings who are snapping away at one of the 7 Wonders of the World. It’s still a thrilling sight for me. I’d love to take my parents here some day.
