Happy Canada Day!


Happy Canada Day to all the Canadians out there.  I thought it would be fun to participate in the Canada Day blog party.  I hope to have fun and meet new people!
My name is Amanda and I currently live in Montreal with my husband Nic who is originally from here.  I am from Florida and met my husband in high school.  We both went to Florida State University and after graduation, he decided he wanted to move back up here.  I figured I owed him one since he moved to Florida to be with me.  We have lived here for almost a year and I love it so far.  It has taken a bit of time for me to get used to such a big city since I have always lived in small towns.

I am just getting started on my blog.  Mostly it will be about books, with a little cooking/baking, and knitting thrown in.  There will probably also be quite a few pictures and stories of my cat, Newton, since he is so cute and funny. Not that I am partial or anything.

  6. Hi there! Just stopping by from the blog party, and I am now a follower!

    I love Montreal! I live in Ontario, but I've visited your city at least a dozen times. (Probably something to do with my dad being a die-hard Habs fan!)

    Happy Canada Day!

  8. Thank you for joining the party! Florida to Montreal would be quite the adjustment! It must have been overwhelming at first to be immersed in not only another culture, but another language too. I'm looking forward to reading more.

    Have a wonderful Canada Day!! I've added you to my Canadian Blogroll as well :-)

  14. I love Montreal - it's such a fun city. And not too far from Ottawa - so we visit once in a while - good for a change in shopping scenes among many other things!

    Hope you had a great Canada Day! And that you get to celebrate the Fourth up here too (do you plan to? Not sure if you would.)

    Happy I found you through the Canada Day Blog Party!
