Lavender Field and a Surprise

lavender fieldThe BIG Five-O!

No, it’s not my birthday. This month is our 50th Wedding Anniversary. To celebrate, we are enjoying some wonderful day trips and weekend getaways!

Niagara-on-the-lake is one of those charming towns we go to every year. This time, we were there for the final days of the lavender season.

Shops are open and the town is in full bloom. What a delight for the senses to stroll along the streets with beautiful flower gardens!

What a wonderful surprise to stay overnight in a fantastic hotel on the 11th floor overlooking the spectacular Niagara Falls! At night, the Falls are lit up with changing colours. Waking up in the morning to this gorgeous view was a dream-come-true!

Love and blessings!

    Happy Anniversary To you both, what a milestone. What a celebration with a beautiful journey and stay. What a view to the falls. The Lavenders fields look so gorgeous specially with you in it. You certainly had a great day. Niagara on the lake is on my list when I visit you as well. Much love from Ute xxx

      Thank you so much Jess! Having been at Niagara Falls many times, but this being the first time overnight was the BEST! We plan to make this a new tradition every anniversary. 🙂

  4. Happy anniversary to you and your husband Carmen!! I cant get over how someone as youthful as you can be married 50 years already though! I remember you in the lavender fields last year also , equally pretty poses this year. I am so happy your town is open again, the floral arrangments are just beautiful, a great tourist attraction along with the stores. What a fabulous view of the falls and a great surprise for you. Have a lovely day, Terri xo.

      Awww that’s a very kind comment Terri! Thank you so much! We only live an hour and a half from the Falls so we always go for the day and come home at night. This time was special to stay in a hotel overlooking the Falls and I don’t know why we waited so long to do this. Now we’ll make it an anniversary tradition. 🙂

    Your post about lavender cannot be missed every year, it is something that identifies you and that identifies with your delicacy, your tenderness, your aroma, your beauty. Nor can the white color be missing, the white dresses, which we both like so much and which served to brilliantly close my blog to four hands. Lavender, white dress, Niagara … and you, your beauty, your elegance, your delicacy! This post is a summary of everything, it is a summary of my queen of Capri, although today the capri does not appear. Carmen, you look absolutely wonderful in the photos, you are beautiful.

  8. Hi, Carmen – Happy Anniversary! And I thought 38 years was a lot, but we got married a bit later in life. I’m so glad you had a wonderful trip! – Angie, http://www.yourtrueselfblog.com

  9. Happy Anniversary!!! I love lavender fields and have a picture of me standing by one just like you. Also, 50 years? So, you must have been 1 years old when you got married and you can’t convince me otherwise.
