The B Life: June 2015

Two Years

Nick and I celebrated our two year dating anniversary this past weekend! I cannot believe how quickly time goes by, and I am so thankful for every minute I have spent with him. He is an incredible man - patient, caring, kind, and has the corniest sense of humour ever! I love him because he challenges me to be a better person, to live a fuller life, and to find beauty and intrigue in bees, gardens, and has taught me to drive a tractor!

As a celebration of love (oh how corny), we hopped into his truck and went to Niagara Falls for the day. It's about 2 hours from where we live, so it was a good day trip. We had beautiful weather, despite a promise from meteorologists of rain. I wanted to go to the Butterfly Conservatory (I'd never been), and Nick wanted to see the Botanical Gardens. So we did.

We also toured the main strip of shops and attractions, where Nick won be a teddy bear at an arcade, and had dinner at the Rainforest Cafe - where I had also never been. It was a lovely day. We walked along the Falls at sunset, and then headed home shortly after. 

For those readers of mine who have never been to Niagara Falls, I hope you find the time sometime in your life to view one of Canada's coolest landmarks. The waterfall is incredibly powerful and beautiful, and it is a great place to take kids, spend a day with your loved one, or just have an afternoon picnic. The photos I took simply do not do the experience justice. 

All that aside, it was a wonderful way to celebrate love. I'm just so grateful to be able to love him.

Montreal Snippets

Wow, life sure gets away from you quickly when you're having fun! It's been a busy few weeks for me, and I'm finally getting around to sharing what those busy weeks have been filled with! Today's post features some of my favourite photos from our trip to Montreal during the last weekend in May. 

If you're a Canadian, and you've never been - I so very much encourage you to go. Montreal, Quebec is my favourite city. There is so much culture and history, as it's truly the birthplace of my country, and it has some of the best food. 

Montreal (like many old cities) is decorated by old Cathedrals, one of which is the Notre Dame Basilica, located at the crux of Old Montreal. It is surrounded by cobblestone streets, small shops, and only a few blocks from the harbour front. The inside is ordained with regal blues, Catholic icons, and a beautifully decorated organ. There is stained glass windows that tell the story of the city's designated saints, and to this day the cathedral still holds mass. 

There is also wonderful lattes and croissants, and a small cafe whose entire menu is chocolate inspired (Juliette's Chocolat, just in case you're wondering). 

I could describe it for a thousand more words, but I've got pictures, and they are definitely worth their weight in words.
