MINI PENNY: Fallingwater

Sunday, August 28, 2011


I'm so happy to let you all know that we did indeed make it to Frank Lloyd Wright's famous Fallingwater today. It was pretty unbelievable and full of tons of inspiration for both myself and Geoffrey. If you're ever in this part of PA, I recommend it!

The weather was awesome. It was in the 70°s and partly cloudy. If was definitely a nice last day for our trip. We started the day at a small diner in Indian Head, Pennsylvania, where we had breakfast with Geoff's family. And can I just say that these were hands down the best pancakes I've ever had? I must find a similar recipe!

After breakfast we went to Fallingwater. We were there for almost two hours taking a tour of the inside and  exploring the grounds. I'm really happy with the amount of the property we got to see for the price (it was $20 per person), but the only thing I wish was that they'd allow photography indoors. The trick is that you have to pay for the more expensive tour to be able to snap photos. Alas, I got a few from the outside that work for the time being. My favorite part of the home were the stairs that lead from the living room down to the creek. You can spot them in the lower photo.

And again, since today was another day in the woods, I opted for a comfy outfit. I figured that a long tank and leggings paired with my favorite thrifted jacket would do — and at first I was going to wear heels. After being around the Fallingwater property, I'm really glad that I changed my mind.

The four hour drive home was pretty simple, but tiring. We're at home now, snacking a little and cuddling with Kitty. I missed her so very much while we were gone! I swear, I'm just slowly turning into a cat lady... (not that there's anything wrong with that!)

I'm going to be sharing the rest of my Instagram photos tomorrow, so keep an eye out!
