We Are Just Passing

First blog post

“Boulot-Dodo-Boulot”. This is a phrase very used here in Montreal to describe what a typical day looks likes for the common human been in his daily basis. Meaning, that you live in a crazy routine that left almost a little if not zero space, to discover or enjoy the good other stuffs in life. Have you ever asked yourself : What it is wrong ?, Why I don’t have time for anything?
Tired of this routine myself and after a great travel to Europe (my first), I decided to start living and enjoying every minute of my life as if it will be the last moment I will get to live.
You know and everybody tells you that if you get ill and recover you will see things with a different perspective, if you knew for example that today’s its your last day to live, you will appreciate more the simple things in life and you will be grateful of precious and simple things like: watching a late sunset, taking a walk with your husband, the hug of one of your kids, or a little quite moment with yourself.
So thinking of being present in the moment like there will not be tomorrow , that is how I started this blog, because I want to enjoy every moment of my life, discovering and why not? Sharing it with you !
Thanks a lot for being here!. I will continue to share about this new adventure that is writing about all those moments, the doubts, the certitudes in front of these new decisions makings and of course I will include some photos of the journey.

Simple as a kid laugh

Yesterday was my sister’s birthday, I could be a little sad as we live far from each other but I choose to toast with wine. Although she is younger that me she always looked as the older sister because of her strong character, also helped the fact, that she is a little taller that me. Nevertheless I have the good feeling that I had fulfilled my roll as I used to open roads for her. I wanted to say that I love her and I respect her because she will think of everything and everybody, she will be my source of inspiration in the sens that she is the kind of person you will like to have near when your planing a trip or a party, as she is well organized and so structured!
Speaking of trips and making other bigger decisions in life, I wanted to say that no matter how crazy the situation could looks, never say no to an opportunity without giving it the thought. Put it in a perspective like if you were a kid with the sens of discovery, keep it simple and asks first to yourselves: Do I deserve it? Did I worked hard enough to earn it? Most of the time the answer will be yes you earn it and you deserve it, so give it the try.
The opportunities will be given to you once, maybe twice, so don’t be too worried about what the others will think about your actions.Be the one that is in full control of your emotions, be strong enough to make your own decisions and live with the consequences. If you were wrong learn about it!
Take every action with love and respect of others…keep it simple as a kid laugh!

A Gourmand Weekend

I do a lot of commute from home to work and vice-versa, so I have lot of time to read in the metro, here in Montreal there is always this two journals that you get for free when you get into the metro and as the weekend was approaching I started to look for ideas of good things to do.
There was a park visit with music and free corn, an exhibition in the public library, the reggae festival at the old port, the public markets, so I wrote some of them down in order to have them in mind when I get home and communicate them to my husband.
So on Saturday after a little bit of cleaning and of course our morning coffee we decided to start with a visit to the Jean-Talon public market, there is always a lot of people , good ambience and delicious fresh food. What is also nice of going to this place are all the streets surrounding the neighborhood, like for example the little Italy. Once we got there I finally ate a craving that I had from some time: fresh black pearl oysters!. They were fantastic!
After that we continue our journey heading to the old port where there is always something going on, this time we chose to come up to the rooftop restaurant of the “Auberge du Vieux port”. Well the view was gorgeous, the weather was rooftop perfect and we spent a very nice moment laughing and sharing good bears and food. The attention was also pretty good.
On Sunday, we were a little more quite, doing all the household stuffs and preparing everything for the “back to school” of my little one, already starting her 4th grade of primary school.
Well I hope you have a wonderful and productive week, thanks again for your presence and take care!
