So, it is the time to take a plane again. In this occasion I’m heading to the Big Easy! Visiting New Orleans has been a dream for a long time. The once French city seems to have so many things in common with Montreal and Quebec in general, and that goes beyond the Fleur-de-Lys. I am excited to see with my own eyes all the colour and to taste the cajun food, listen to good jazz music and just enjoy the city with all the many wonders it has to offer! So, since I will be visiting NoLa, there will be little time for blogging. In the meantime, please feel free to follow me on Instagram as I will be surely posting some images on that platform.

Gros bisous,

“The roots of all goodness lie in the soil of appreciation for goodness.” — Dalai Lama

Today is Canadian thanksgiving! Ever since I started focusing in being grateful and appreciative of what I have rather than running after things I didn’t possess, my whole world changed. It feels so good to open your eyes and see the magic of life. I do not take anything for granted now, and that’s why I better enjoy my loved ones, my job and my life in general. Today is thanksgiving in Canada, and although for me everyday it is about giving thanks for all the blessings I’ve received from life, on this day I want to do it here.
Thank you for reading me, your appreciation means a lot! Thanks life for the wonderful family back in the Mexican West Coast, the extended family spread all around the world, the amazing friends here in Canada and those living across the globe, the challenging and super interesting weekday job that encourages me to be a better professional while allowing me to pay for my needs, those of my baby cat and yes, all the extra non necessary stuff.
Thanks so much!

IMG 6517 682x1024 October delights: apple picking, pumpkins and colourful leaves

I am Karla

As I just told you in my last post, October is a month bringing plenty of nice things I enjoy and call October delights. A few days into the month and I’ve already got the chance to go apple picking, pumpkin and colourful leaves observing with my friends and my nephew. It was a rather rainy and chilly day, not the best time to be searching for apples into wet trees haha. But, on the good side, we were about the only ones apple picking so the trees were all for us and a few other visitors. More »

October is here and with it also comes Fall! Here and there I’ve been seeing pictures and more pictures of beautiful trees with changing colour leaves. As my dear Aile Rêve posted today on Instagram, October means the arrival of cozy sweaters, warm blankets, hot tea/cocoa, all kind of apple based pies and desserts. And although September 21st is officially the first day of Fall, for a rare time here, we were actually enjoying a nice Summer-ish weather. Hence, it is October’s role to embrace Fall and give us just a few weeks of enjoyable cold…

Wishing you an excellent October!

I love reading and try to do it as often as possible. With a Summer full of activities, I have not been a very constant in this task which I kind of regret to be honest. Still, I have managed to finish one book: the Gospel according to Jesus Christ. This is my very latest reading, I wish I could say Latest readings in plural haha, but well, I will do my best to improve my record in the Fall and Winter. More »
