This past weekend my husband, Kennedy and I went away to celebrate our one year wedding anniversary in Niagara! This time last year we were preparing to head off on our honeymoon. I did a blog post exactly one year ago all about our wedding and the different vendors etc. to read up on that post click here!
This weekend was amazing, we stayed right along the Falls (for two nights) but spent one day in Niagara on The Lake. We stayed at the Tower Hotel, located downtown Niagara Falls. Our room was beautiful, there wasn't many amenities to speak of but we got over that quickly. Saturday we spent the day gazing at the falls and taking lovely walks along the grounds, the landscaping and gardening was beautiful!
Later in the afternoon we went to the Butterfly Conservatory. We had both been there before for our grade 5 class trip but not again since! It was much more interesting as an adult with patience lol. We really enjoyed walking around the warm tropical oasis looking at all the beautiful butterflies and plants. Check out a video I took while I was there here! We spent the second portion of the afternoon walking up Clifton Hill enjoying some treats and looking at all the crazy tourist attractions. That night, we saw an awesome live performance and had a few too many drinks ;)
Sunday, we checked out of our hotel and headed to Niagara on the Lake for brunch at the Charles Inn. Needless to say, it was one of the best meals we have ever had. The old victorian home was a beautiful and romantic setting. I highly recommend it!
After brunch we headed downtown Niagara on the Lake and did some shopping! Whenever we go away we have a tradition of buying ourselves something timeless that we will use forever (it has to be the same thing, not the same style but same "thing"). This time it was hats! There was a beautiful shop called Beau Chapeau along the main road (Queen Street), we each picked up a beautiful hat (I will be doing a more thorough post on my hat and incorporating some fall fashion/beauty must haves - so stay tuned for that). Kennedy is sporting his below... There were so many adorable and unique shops! Just Christmas - was my heaven on earth!
Later that afternoon we headed back to London to meet my parents for Dinner at Sunningdale - where we had our wedding one year ago yesterday! It was a perfect end to a perfect weekend!
