Guess where we were this weekend?
Hint: we were also there for Carnaval in February!
Yep. Québec City! We were there to celebrate our 20th anniversary, which is today. We ended up taking a calèche ride with the same driver (and his dog Winston!) that we had in February. It was a lot warmer this time around.
We had some truly amazing meals, thanks to the recommendations of my bloggy friend An Anglo in Québec, who coincidentally is currently visiting Tadoussac, where Gordon and I got engaged while watching whales from the beach in 1992! Check out the great photos on her blog.
We had a delicious brunch on Monday at Le Clocher Penché:
The restaurant is in an old bank, and is full of charm. Excellent food and coffee and chocolat chaud. The toilets are in the former bank vault!
Yep, 20 years ago today, we got hitched at Knox College Chapel at the University of Toronto campus...
Audrey and Lisa, my two oldest friends who are always there when I need them. I've been friends with Audrey since 1977, and Lisa since 1980. My Mum made all our dresses.
I love how everyone is looking at the camera but us! I wonder what we were saying to each other. I can't remember! Probably "What? What? I can't hear you over the bagpiper!!"
Us with Gordon's parents.
This photo always cracks us up. We all knew it was corny when we had it taken, but it was just so funny, stepping into that shaft of light in the chapel. It felt like a photo shoot for some inspiration book or something! :)
And yes, I have beaten my parents' record. They split up after 19 years of marriage. I am proud to have made it to the milestone of 20, and I hope we have at least 50 years more!
Happy anniversary to my favourite person on earth! Yes, that's you, Gordon.
More Québec shots to come....
