I love long weekends. period. Honestly, what’s there not to love (besides the traffic, if you’re leaving the city)?!

The first half of my long weekend was spent in Toronto; shopping along Queen West, dining on the patio of South of Temperance (fri) and at BQM on Ossington (sat) with great friends, and watching a (not so great) movie while cuddling with my man.

I spent the latter of the weekend celebrating Canada Day by taking in one of the natural wonders of the World (and one of Canada’s greatest landmarks) Niagara Falls. My boyfriend and I walked along the falls, wondered the streets, bar hopped, ate a delicious dinner at Copacabana Brazilian Steakhouse, tried our luck at the casino, and celebrated Canada’s 145th Birthday by watching fireworks.

It was just the kind of weekend I needed to bring in summer!

      Hey Chandra!
      Your message got lost in my spam folder, so I just found it now. Sorry about that!

      The falls area is so beautiful 🙂

      That’s okay, going on wine tours is awesome…and you can always go again later for a view of the falls. The more vacations the better 😉

    I enjoyed so much looking at these photos. I would like to see live, one day, Niagara Falls, but until then, I’m thankful for having the chance to see it through your eyes.
