Aaron and I are East Coast people. He will not agree with me and swear he was born to live in Alaska. But, I know we were both born to live on the East Coast where everyone wears black, has an attitude, and walks like they’ve got somewhere to be (like me). I fit in there. It’s diverse there. And most importantly, our families live there.
Aaron grew up near Rochester, New York and I grew up near Columbus, Ohio. During our long-distance dating days we learned to frequent the trip (it takes me 5 hours to drive and Aaron 6.5 hours to drive) between NY and OH… IO! to spend time with one another’s families. We still do this, every time we get the chance to visit home, because I can’t leave the East without seeing my family and he can’t leave the East without seeing his.
But as great as it is to spend quality time with our loved ones, we’ve been known to make a secret pit stop in between our frequented (is that a word?) 6 hour journey. An incredible little pit stop to the beautiful Niagara Falls.
This is why you should make a pit stop too:
