Several Christmas’s ago we did a double trip, one week in Philadelphia to visit Bill’s family and one week in Buffalo, NY to visit mine. With snow on the ground and about 12 degree wind chills I took Bill to Anderson’s in Buffalo. There is not a season where I wouldn’t eat their chocolate custard with chocolate jimmies. Not a single season. Its a Buffalo staple and a family tradition.
Winter in Buffalo, NY is cold and white. This is Niagara Falls, very cold, very icy, with a rickety fence to keep you from sliding under the metal railing and cascading down into the falls. This is one of my favorite times to see the falls, there are few tourists and there is something about watching giant chunks of ice floating down the Niagara river and crashing over the falls onto the rocks below that is somewhat thrilling.
In August-ish of 2009 I had gone to Buffalo, NY for my grandfather’s funeral, a week later my grandmother (other side of the family) passed away. A three day trip turned into almost three weeks. There was so much going on in my life during this time, so much sadness, so much loss. In the midst of it all my father, his mother (my Nana) and my most awesome cousin Kelly went to the Niagara river. It was peaceful. It was beautiful. It was the first time while I was there that I felt like I could actually breathe. We had a really great time, walked the river, got ice cream, I ventured into the brush to take photos of the wildflowers. This photo carries with it so many memories and emotions, but the feeling of peace overwhelms them all.
