Montreal: Day 2

One of my favorite parts of vacation is simply waking up when you naturally do and then taking the morning at a relaxed pace.  So that is exactly what we did this morning.  We grabbed a light breakfast in the hotel and then took our time getting ready to venture out.  We decided to experience […]

Montreal: Day 1

It’s hard to believe we haven’t been to another country since our time in Italy, over 2 years ago!  With another baby on the way, Joe and I decided to take advantage of the opportunity to get away for a babymoon.  We both wanted to explore a city that we had never been to and […]

Football Food: Part 1

Up North

When people hear that we spent three months in Italy and that I love to cook, they assume that I find the food in Minnesota a let down. That’s not true at all! I love finding great regional food and this summer, I had a lot of fun discovering some great dishes on our trips […]
