Trip to Montreal
This weekend we had a little BRG get together up in Montreal. Sadly not everyone could make it, but we did manage most of the group:
Montreal is a beautiful city, the weekend was full of wandering down charming cobblestone streets and catching up on all our current and future projects. We had the privilege of getting a sneak preview of the art for one of Grace's upcoming novels WHERE THE MOUNTAIN MEETS THE MOON (she posted about it here) that is INCREDIBLY beautiful.
While I didn't get any pictures of any of that stuff, I did document our other main activity: eating. Lots and lots of eating. I think Alvina has some better 'before' pictures, but this is what our table at an all chocolate restaurant looked like after we descended... we managed to consume an order of chocolate fondue, profiteroles (chocolate covered cream puffs with hazelnut ice cream), whiskey chocolate pudding, raspberry cheesecake and two different kinds of thick old fashioned hot chocolate.
Breakfast the next day was strawberry pavlova (hand made by Grace), chocolate croissants and brioche.
Sigh, good times. And yes I will be going to the gym today.
