Thank you for your lovely comments about Montreal! I was surprised and excited to see the response, and it made me love my city even more. Last weekend, a friend from New Zealand (but currently living in Tokyo!) arrived in Montreal for the first time, and I happily showed her all the fun sights, the Jazz Festival, the Old Montreal, and we shared some wine and er, cake. Despite the cold, cold, Montreal weather, we had such a great time, and she is in love with Montreal. Here I am, wearing pink (I never wear pink), drinking pink wine (rosé) and eating a pink cake, with my pink fingernails. What's going on there?
In other news, I'm so happy it's Friday, and I'm excited for a weekend full of friends, brunches, cafés, running and hiking, and perhaps more rain, but I don't mind. Rainy days are an excuse to stay in and watch movies all day, no? Have a great weekend!
