The weather for the weekend looks great so I hope everyone will get to enjoy some outdoor time. After last week’s busy long weekend, I am ok with just spending this one on the couch. Do you ever need a recovery period after a trip away from home? If you would like to reminisce my trip to Montreal with me and Brian, I would love to share some of our photos.

We were able to rent bikes and ride all over town. Brian enjoyed being silly while photos were being taken.


This is my younger sister Nicole. She tagged along with us and was a great sport.

Nicole had a camera lens that formats all photos to fish eye. We played around with it while waiting for some delicious breakfast.


Brian had a craving for southern food and got lucky that one of the brunch places offered Chicken & Waffles.


The downtown area of Montreal was beautiful and filled with cute little boutiques and a ton of cafes.


Nicole took this picture as we were strolling through Old Montreal.

I think I am starting to enjoy these 3 day trips away, maybe the next one will be to Boston or Philadelphia. How about you, any trips planned?

Brian and I were on vacation in Charleston just a few weeks ago. When we planned our trip this time, our main focus was on the food. There is something so special about southern food, to me its the comfort of all the layers of rich flavor… or maybe its just all the extra butter. Either way its delicious and I have been craving some southern style food and as if Yelp was reading my mind, an event popped up for a southern style restaurant dinner and mingle.

SOCO is advertised as a fusion of cajun/creole, bbq and soul food. The menu is filled with many wonderful choices when looking for some southern comfort foods. Read more…
