Guest Post: I Heart Montreal
Vanessa of Hey, Lady Grey refers to her blog as "nurturing" and I can't think of a more apt description. Her beautiful finds, photos of the outdoors and yummy baked things are as comforting as a cozy flannel blanket on a fall day.
Hello lovely SoHo readers, my name is Vanessa from Hey Lady Grey, and it is such an honour to guest post on this incredible blog!
I live in Montreal, Canada.... it's a true gem of a city! Have you ever been there? If you haven't you should definitely come for a visit. Although it's very cold here in the winter, it is this bitter cold that gives rise to our unique joie-de-vivre. Because when summer roles in, this city truly appreciates it and celebrates unlike any other. You should definitely visit Montreal in the summer - it's phenomenal!
But aside from the festivals, live music & parties, what I love most about this city is its day to day life. Our French language and heritage makes for a truly unique cultural experience. Trendy boutiques, incredible restaurants & cafes, farmers markets, artisanale bakeries... Montreal will definitely leave you satisfied! I've lived here my whole life and I am still discovering new areas. And yet Montreal doesn't actually feel that big. In the summer I walk everywhere and I always run into someone I know. It's a little big city with a whole lotta heart, and I absolutely love it!
