Weekend Moments: Mountains & Breakfasts


On Saturday we climbed to the top of Mt. Royal (a little weekend ritual of ours). It's a tiny mountain actually, taking only about 15 minutes to reach the top... but Montrealers adore their mountain, and it's always buzzing with activity. There's a stairway that leads all the way to the top, and people of all ages do stair climbs for exercise. I love to people watch up there.

On Friday I received a surprise package in the mail from my friend Karalee.
 It contained this adorable breakfast dish designed specifically for coffee & toast... which is absolutely perfect for me! 


Isn't getting real mail (especially a package) one of life's best simple pleasures?
(Thanks, sweetie, you made my day!)


I hope you had a lovely weekend too!
