On the way to the Buffalo airport this morning my parents and I decided to swing by Niagara Falls.  Considering that Toronto is so close to Niagara, I’ve been there a few times before but it was never like this. I’ve discovered that experiencing the falls on a spring, weekday morning is a rare treat in itself. This insanely beautiful wonder of the world was entirely tourist free. Niagara was left to its own enchantments and magic (before we invaded it of course). It felt as though we had the falls to ourselves – surreal.

The shorts I’m wearing today have a story of their own. As you might have guessed, they used to be jeans with rips at the knees. I loved these Aberctombies but they quickly went from ‘distressed’ to plain stressed and tired. The rips got bigger with every wear and I figured it was time to put them out of their misery. Shortly after this realization, they had some ‘quality time’ with my scissors and the jeans where never the same again. This morning these ‘shorts’ popped into my head and I decided it was time for a revival. They are now knee length so I rolled them up for a more finished look.

I guess it’s true what they say…never give up on those you love :).
