(photo text inspired by these, I'm teaching myself photoshop step by step) 

Montreal was wonderful. We spent our time there eating the best food the city had to offer. This included the most melt-in-your-mouth roast beef, tarte au sucre, crepes (so many crepes from La Petite Marche) and delicious poutine from La Banquise recommended to me by Caroline ( she recommended it to us a year ago, but we finally made it this trip!).

Christy: I do wish I had savored it, but I am looking forward to reading Swamplandia. Thank you for the recommendation!
Julie: It's on my list! :)
Lexie, Little Boat: ha! Your comment made me laugh! oh sixth grade, so fraught with drama. Good luck teacher!
caroline: You'll have to let me know what you think of it.
Julie: I agree! It's not an easy balance to nail.
Alaina: I didn't realize Swamplandia was her first novel! Interesting. I hope you let me know what you think of St. Lucy's Home for Girls...
Nomadic D.: Thanks for your nail polish inspiration!

  2. Photoshop is fun... when you have it on a computer that works all the time (just a couple days and we're buying a new one! Yay!).

    Sounds like a delicious trip!

  7. love that you're teaching yourself photoshop! tip: save 'em as jpgs rather than gifs and they won't have that odd digitally grain! (when you save for web there's an option to pick jpg instead of gif). Sorry, I hate unsolicited advice on my own blog like the plague but couldn't help sharing a tip:)

    The only time I went to Montreal my apartment was robbed in Brooklyn so I have the worst connotations with it, but I really want to go back and make new memories! ha. It seemed so lovely.

  8. These two beautiful countries also have a large community of Orangutans (who tend Benefit Brushes to Benefit Cheeks reside in the palm trees benefit cosmtics wholesale where palm oil is extracted). I: Distillation: For heat intolerance, changes or sensitive components can benefit this method.
