Here's to the start of summer! Memorial Day Weekend always feels like the gateway to the year's sunniest season. While most families head to the beach for a long weekend getaway, mine decided to keep things low key this year with a road trip into Western Pennsylvania.
The first leg of our trip was an art lover's dream, with a stop at American architect Frank Lloyd Wright's famous Falling Water house. This visit had been on our family's list for years, and we quickly concluded that it was worth the wait.
Wright's work was always focused on an organic harmony with nature. He believed in the synthesis of architecture and the environment surrounding it, as clearly shown by Falling Water's seamless integration into the boulders, trees, and waterfalls. We unfortunately could not take photos inside, but I highly recommend that any art lovers reading this take the trip one day. To simply describe the home's beauty and carefully constructed details will never do it justice. Stay tuned for photos from the second half of our trip!
