falling water


Over the weekend we visited family in PA and visited Falling Water, one of Frank Lloyd Wright's designs, on our drive up. The picture above is of me, my dad and his fiancee, Colleen. I had to wear this shirt there because it feels very aqueous to me. The place is absolutely breathtaking. Everything is so green and the house is a wonder. Unfortunately they have a super strict photography policy- no photos indoors and no photos during the tour even outside? Who knows why. I personally think it's so they can have a monopoly on selling photos. Not cool, Western PA Conservancy, not cool.

But anyway if you get a chance, definitely worth seeing!


They said that the waterfall freezes in the winter, I would love to see that and autumn is their peak visiting season because all the leaves are so beautiful. Picturesque at any time really.


You can walk right out and sit on the bottom step or wade in the water if the current's not too strong. Not a bad way to start the day, eh?


First day on the job tomorrow! Wish me luck :) Be back soon with an outfit post I hope.

Aahhh, it looks spectacular! And that step near the water in the 3rd picture looks amazing! Wouldn't that be lovely to go and sit down there on a sunny, warm morning? :)

Good luck at your job tomorrow! ♥
