the butter to my toast.

having watched julie & julia (which i really recommend, btw) has made me want to blog. 10 of julie powell's blog posts and two nutella teaspoons later here i am with a slight stomach ache ( i really must stop eating nutella like ice cream) and very much inspired (& hungry).
i am excited to say that i'm going back to school (part-time) in the fall for an event & meeting management certificate. i guess i can say that this is my challenge, as julie's julie/julia project was hers.
i cannot wait! i start in a few weeks.
it's a good excuse to go school supply shopping again. :)

for now i leave you with some pictures from our family trip to quebec. picnicking on freshly baked baguettes with cheese from the local fromagerie and apple butter and strawberry gel in the van was the best.

it's unfortunate that i just found out about this month-long french goodness...there's still time though, for you francophiles out there! :) they will be playing movies until the 22nd of august. don't you just aime toronto?

package of lovely goodness from johnny:
bobby pins because i always lose them, a moleskine for meetings, and altoids not for my breath, but for my tin collection (hardeeharhar)

a statue of liberty stamp from muji, from when he went to new york in may

and just in case you're planning to make smashed potatoes, this is the best way to smash 'em:

avec une verre!
