...it was an impromptu getaway. i'd already booked the time off, because this week is paul's reading week, and monday was a holiday, so i'd taken two extra days to spend with him. we weren't planning to go anywhere (living in our lovely apartment in downtown toronto usually provides enough entertainment when we want to go out, and unlimited movies and boardgames, when we want to stay in) but when i found a great deal on a hotel in niagara falls, an hour and a half from home, we thought a mini-getaway would be the perfect thing to cure the winter blues. so we made the quick trip to one of nature's most breathtaking sights on monday afternoon.
after we'd dried off a little, we headed back to our hotel to fill up our enormous jetted tub and warm up before dinner. the rest of the weekend was a blur of delicious food, tested luck at the casino, conversations full of laughter, and running through an impromptu snowstorm... but mostly, large amounts of relaxation.
