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!
