About Me

My photo
My human, Mia, has been working so hard. She is so inspired by my plan. My plan is to go all over the United States meeting new and wonderful people, to share their stories, and to find the connection between all people. Mia is so wonderful, and I want to meet more wonderful humans like her.

8-28-10 - Saturday - Frank Lloyd Wright

Today we went and saw "Falling Water" a Frank Lloyd Wright designed home.  For those of you that don't know who he is here's a bit of history.


Frank Lloyd Wright was known as an American architect, not just an American architect, but in 1991 he was declared the greatest American architect of all time by American Institute of Architects.  He designed not only buildings, but also; furniture, stained glass, and wrote books.  He believed in designing homes where you felt connected to nature.


There are no pictures from the Falling Water tour posted because it isn't allowed, all photos are for personal use only. But I wanted to tell you about Frank Lloyd Wright and his buildings because Mia bought a year pass to go into 15 of his buildings for free.  So through out the year, I'll mention seeing different places, and when I can I'll post pictures.

But for now here's a list of where we'll be going and website links for those of you interested in seeing more.
