So much yes.

Yes yes yes and yes! And so much more to daydream about here.
Also: please get out and vote today! It's so very important. xo

I may have ordered this sweater.

Because it was on sale! And I love a wrap sweater! And it's so cute.

If you haven't seen J. Crew's fall line, take a look - it's really nice. Here are some of my favourites. I am especially in love with the boots. I think they're bee-yoo-ti-ful.

Oh, and I should say that I kept watching Sister Wives last night, until the husband used this line to talk about his first wife's resistance to in vitro fertilization:

I haven't heard 'no' in a serious enough fashion yet to believe it means 'no'.

This, of course, wasn't the only problematic issue I had with the show, but it does identify the moment when I almost barfed.

Why am I watching Sister Wives?

I've been trying to convince myself that it's research for a project I'm working on, but that's such a lie. Oh Sister Wives, why are you so likeable and offensive at the same time?

In other news, we made some delicious cauliflower risotto the other night. And I'm so taken with the heirloom carrots we bought at Jean Talon. A huge bag for $2.50. Seriously!

A fistful of delicious.

I can't believe how quickly autumn is passing. But it's been so beautiful, hasn't it?

Thanks Montreal. We really needed that.

We had a last minute free & fancy hotel room offered to us on Friday for this past weekend, so we left Friday afternoon and had one of our best weekend trips. The weather was perfect and we ate so well. We were especially happy to discover the restaurant Lemeac, and its unbelievable Pain Perdu. It's pretty much worth going to Montreal just for that dessert.
We strolled through Parc Lafontaine, visited some galleries and just explored. Oh Montreal! Thanks for being so fun and nice.

The fantastic men's & women's shop Rooney. Such a great space.

Jenny Holzer exhibit at DHC-ART.

Jean Talon Market. My favourite market of all markets. A perfect outing for Thanksgiving day.

A lot of meat on one plate at the Main.
