The Great White North, as my Canadian husband calls it, is a land of nice people, clean bathrooms, fresh air and a lot of heavy drinking. I'm more of the heavy eating type. They have a saying in Calgary, "if you don't like the weather, just wait a minute, it'll change." But most of our recent trip included below fa-reezing temps, so we ventured into the city for some hot chocolate, and ran our frozen California selves right into Analog Coffee.

Our next adventure was a daycation to Canmore. Although I believe it's better suited to an overnighter -- you really need that fireplace to kick off your snow boots in front of and play some board games. But this time we took the day and ventured out to behold the natural beauty that is Canmore. Known for the Three Sisters mountains (a trio of peaks), it's a beautiful little mountain town situated right next to the world-famous Banff. They're gorgeous but pictures don't do them justice so I haven't included any here (laugh).
We noshed on some serious yumminess at the Mountain Mercato. Who doesn't love some good charcuterie and cheese on a frosty day?
And then, of course, we had to take some goodies home!
