The Best Of: January 2016

 

When I went to Rise Up in Montreal, I stopped in the most delightful cafe for lunch. My meal was too pretty not to take a picture of.

It’s been a year since I started this blog! Originally I started it to keep up with my New Years resolutions for 2015, but as those faded away, the purpose for this blog did too. Also things got very busy with a combination of an active toddler and a new job. I think for now I will be happy to use it as a space to update pictures for anyone who would like to see! Here is the best of our past month.

My Aunt Rose's living room in her Montreal appartment. I love it because it seems to have remain untouched for as long as I can remember.

My Aunt Rose seems to be the family's historian. I had such a wonderful time seeing old photographs.

I have a thing for cookbooks. A 90's Ontario Honey cookbook I've kept from my Nana's collection. I made banana bread with honey. It was delicious!

One of our souvenirs from our trip to St. John's this summer. I made fish chowder and scones. I was disappointed with the dry and flaky scones, but they were perfect for the chowder!
