Here's a little glimpse of mine, plus some tips for trips to Buffalo, NY.
Buffalo is a great destination for Southern Ontarians who want an affordable trip that's almost but not quite a "staycation". Buffalo offers a taste of the United States without forcing you to spend hundreds on plane fare and hours on travel.
This made Buffalo the perfect location for the special Mother's Day weekend I planned for my Maman.
We left on Friday afternoon, arriving in Buffalo just in time for dinner.

We spent Friday evening, all of Saturday and much of Sunday reading in coffee shops, exploring stores we don't have in Canada (TJ Maxx!) and enjoying each other's company. It was the perfect opportunity to have fun and ensure we came home refreshed.
In addition to making silly faces, we had some amazing southern food at Cracker Barrel, a family favourite!
Clockwise, from top: I love this City of Buffalo sign! | Gorgeous architecture in Williamsville. | Serious face!
I wore head-to-toe pastel on Saturday. Loved it! | We spent a few hours at Barnes and Noble, enjoying magazines, feta and spinach-stuffed pretzels and frappuccinos. | I'm so excited about this purchase: nail polish in bright colours from TJ Maxx.
