Yesterday after spending the day in our pyjama's, watching more than enough episodes of Friends, creating a list of 'Things we must do before we graduate' and with no plans for the evening; the four of us decided to hop in the car and drive to Niagara Falls.
We often forget we are only a 10 minute drive to one of the Worlds Most Forgotten Natural Wonders, but each time we are there, are amazed at the beauty it brings. Last night it was more than the water that was beautiful, but rather that Christmas fairy sprinkled some magical beauty dust all throughout the area.
The festival of lights is Christmas on steroids. Seriously everything about it is over the top and magical, and we soaked it all in. The lights were everywhere, snow sprinkled on the ground, and all we needed were Christmas tunes in the background and cup of hot coco--and we made that happen. Nothing says Christmas like some good ole Michael Buble, Frank Sinatra, or Mariah Carey coming from the speakers of an iPhone, and Tim Horton's hot coco to warm our chilled bodies.
We joined the line of cars as we drove by the festival of lights, slowly stopping to admire the different pictures and rolling down windows so we could get a better shot. After driving by we scored ourselves a $2.00 parking spot and walked along the water to look at the Disney Christmas lights.
I'm pretty sure we were the most excited people there as we broke out into Disney classics such as 'Tale as Old as Time' and started to dance pretending we were 'Under the Sea'. After Disney Christmas we continued to walk with Bill Crosby, and Justin Bieber busting out on the iPhone.
Not only was the Christmas dust sparkling in the lights that were all throughout the area, the dust was sprinkled and sparkling on my dearest roomies and friends who complete me and make me whole. Christmas is a time where I admire all my blessings, and the people that bring the most joy and love in my life. Jaclyn, Steph and Amanda are definitely some of those people. There is constant laughter in the house, hearts filled with love, and a deep understanding for one another. As we walked, sang and admired the Christmas festivities, I too admired my friends who I am so blessed to call my own.
Hope the Christmas fairy is sprinkling some cheer you way too.
