Today we introduce Julie Garland of Julie Garland Jewelry! I love the small town America feel! Thanks for sharing with us!
This is a photo of main street and the lone traffic light in Youngstown in Western New York where I live. It’s an historic little village right on the Niagara River where it flows into Lake Ontario. This is the first time I’ve lived in a small town and I have to admit it does have its charm! The local diner is fantastic and I frequent it so much they wonder if I ever cook.
This lovely little spot is where my son and I sit and watch the boats. Old Fort Niagara is very close and is on the National Historic Register. Over 100,000 people visit each year and it offers a collection of original military architecture and fortifications from the 18th and 19th Century. It also has a beautiful park and waterfront and I like to stand at the shore and wave to my Canadian friends across the lake in Toronto. (Well not really because that would make me look crazy.)
This view is overlooking the Marina. Youngstown is a pretty sleepy place in the winter but in the summer it comes alive. We don’t own a boat but do our best to befriend people that do (just kidding!).
And finally here is a picture of yours truly in my work area that I usually don’t get to until my son’s bedtime!
