So! Hello again!
Now, lets talk about amazing Montreal!
We arrived here in Montreal after exactly 35 hours of travel. We headed straight for our hotel (in the Quartier Latin.) I do not think I have ever been so tired.
The next day we got up at the crack of 10, and slowly gathered our things. We went out for tea to a chocolate based coffee shop and My Love had his first taste of just how indulgent this city is. Then, in the minus five million weather we headed to our new home.
They even spray painted our initials onto the side of it so we would know we were at the right place.
We got all settled in and then slept more than anyone has ever slept for the rest of the weekend. We did go out to get some food, and this is how I looked doing that:
That right there is 1 shirt, 3 sweaters, 1 coat, 4 pairs of pants, leg warmers and 2 pair of socks. And a scarf. It is really cold here as it would turn out.
Monday morning My Love had his first day of work!
I even made him some vegan banana bread to celebrate the occasion.
Then, it was time for me to start exploring the city to find awesome sources of fruit! I have found SO MANY amazing fruit markets and stores. I think there is more fruit here than in Vancouver!
All that cost me $15 total. WHAT!
I have not kicked my watermelon obsession. And I never will most likely. Fortunately I have been able to find some good ones here.
We went to the Jean-Thalon market and got all these persimmons for $2.
We also have an amazing little store right near our house. I got all these for $5
That is a fridge I like to look into.
This photo was from a huge bulk store My Love found by his work. Everything in bulk – seasonings, spices, herbs, nuts, seeds, dried fruit, even Dr. Bronners soap!
Then for the final big event of the first few days here we went to My Love’s office Christmas Party. It was cool to get to meet all the people he is working with, and it was a huge load off my mind to know that he has a job that he likes, working with really great people.
I wore a dress. And makeup.
AND pink shoes.
See you soon Love bug!
