oui, oui!

© Colleen Hilman
My days have been quiet of late but this week things will be a little different.  Mark and I are heading to Québec City! I've never been there but have heard it is beautiful in every way - the St. Lawrence river, the glorious old Chateau Frontenac, cobblestone streets, and fabulous French food within slurping distance.  I am prepared to dive head first into a plate of crêpes directly upon arrival.  Everything will be profusely decked out for the Christmas holidays.  But best of all we will be seeing Casse-Noisette aka The Nutcracker ballet performed at the Grand-Théâtre de Québec.  I have wanted to see this all my life and have never had the chance.  I cannot WAIT!  (I promise, Mom, I will take you with me in my back pocket.)  I'll be back soon to tell you all about it!

Rachel - I've wanted to see Montreal, too. I have a dear friend who lives there but alas, I won't be able to see her even though I'll be so close!

Susan - Thank you! I will! I told a friend of mine today that I already want to go back even though I haven't been there yet. :)

What a good think.
Have the best visit you can imagine.
I wish you both : pleasure and pleasure.
Thank you to share with us.
I'm so far away, but it's a dream for me, when I read you.
See (read you) you soon.
