This past weekend marked the one year anniversary of myself and my husband. The time really flew by. I know a lot of people say that but quite honestly a year had come and gone before either of us even knew what was going on. It has been a great year for both of us, and we were both very excited to celebrate. Our anniversary falling on a Sunday we decided to make it a whole weekend of fun and crossed our fingers that the weather would more or less hold out for us.
Our fun started by heading over to Le Nordik Spa in Old Chelsea Quebec. The Spa has what they call The Baths. I had been before with girlfriends but it was a first for my husband and I think he really enjoyed it. The baths are a series of hot, cold and relaxation “stations” and you go from one to the other. You stay in each station from anywhere from 8-35 minutes and it is just all about relaxing. After spending several hours hoping from hot to cold we realized it had been several hours since we had eaten so we decided to head home and get ready for the rest of our day.
We then headed out for some snacks at one of our favorite restaurants where we arrived just in time to beat the down pour. We shared two appetizers and then eventually headed our way to our final destination. For our wedding last year some good friends gave us a gift certificate to one of our favorite restaurants in the city. The restaurant is called Play and it is a small plates and wine bar, and we have yet to not be in love with the wine or the food we have been presented with. The staff was incredibly sweet when they found out it was our anniversary. It was a delicious fun way to end the evening.
Sunday was a bit more laid back as I likely had a bit too much wine the night before. But as always my Sunday started off with heading over to the farmers market to do some groceries for the week, and now being well into June we were almost able to do all of our groceries at the market. I can’t wait until I no longer have to go to the grocery store afterwards. It is always such a good feeling buying everything my husband and I are going to eat for the week from local farmers themselves.
After the farmer’s market we decided that nerding out with some Harry Potter and just spending some time together would be a perfect ending to our anniversary weekend. It was a great weekend to celebrate a great year and I am so happy and excited to start another one with my husband.
Happy Monday everyone. Hope you are all having a great start to your week.
