Weekend Moments: Christmas in the City

Hey there lovely readers. Sorry for the absence from the blog last week. The holidays are just so busy.... but I'm not complaining, I love every minute of it!

My cousin Mike has been staying with us, so we've been exploring the city a bit more than usual. Yesterday we stumbled upon this really cool light installation in downtown Montreal. 
 I'm still not quite sure what it's all about, but it was beautiful.

We've also been enjoying lots of tasty goodies... basically chocolates for breakfast, lunch and dinner ; )
Mike made us this delicious avocado and smoked salmon salad.
Don't you just love having house guests that cook for you!

Montreal has so much going on for Christmas.
There's live music on street corners and in the parks,
 and chestnuts roasting,
and gorgeous store windows,
it's all so magical!
 I hope you've had a lovely weekend.

There is so much beauty and goodness here, I don't know where to begin! I also had to step away from the internet unexpectedly all week, but it's lovely to return to all the wonderfulness here :)

Hope you have a terrific holiday week ahead!
