Winter wonderland weekend.

I got back from a great weekend getaway in Quebec City (FRIGID, but great). The hotel we stayed at, Le Port-Royal, was modern and lofty. I had to snap a pic of the gorgeous wallpaper and furniture in the lobby.

The old city was like a magical winter wonderland, every store front was decorated for Christmas! They really go all out with the Christmas lights in Quebec. How cute are the santa clothes hanging from clothes lines?

The highlight of the weekend? Not my first attempt at skiing (I did more gymnastics-style tumbling than actual skiing), but the food! We had an amazing dinner at a restaurant called L’Echaude. And the icing on the cake? I tried my first macaroon; now I know what everyone has been talking about! Anyone ever try to make them? The recipes look intimidating!
