Add the ups & downs of living in France.
Cover with melted cheese...
Et voilà !

Les Scènes du Week-end {26}

We had a wonderful weekend trip to Chamonix
avec mes parents.

The weather was gorgeous, sunny & warm during the day.
It made it hard to believe we were up in the mountains 
& that it is mid-October.
That being said, we could see 
the beginning of the beautiful autumn colours in the woods
& the stunning Mont Blanc glacier shining in the sun.

It was wow, wow & wow.

So without further ado, here are the photos I promised you.

Take it away, Chamonix!

the train station
café, église, forets, montagnes
us being tourists with the guides de Chamonix mural
there was A LOT of cheese in town
speaking of fromage, my mom & I shared a fondue Saturday night... YUM
winter's already here in the shop window displays
this ad made me laugh... "prêt à..." = ready to...
as I mentioned above, forest + mountains + glacier + sun = WOW
at tea-time, I treated myself to a pistachio macaron
Sunday before leaving town, we hit the MBC, a Canadian-founded microbrewery

So as I write this post,  
my parents are on the plane back to Vancouver.
I'm feeling sad & missing them already.

I have beaucoup de photos of their time en France 
to share with you soon.
In the meantime, I'm headed to aquafit class at my gym
to hopefully burn off at least a few
 of the fondue/macaron/brewpub calories from this past weekend...

Bon lundi tout le monde !


  1. Mmmmm, you know how I love a fondue!

    But did you know I have never, not once, had a macaron? I think that situation needs to be dealt with, stat.

    These photos are lovely. Chamonix looks beautiful. And the "pret à kick ass"? Awesome. That should be your new motto!

    Love you loads.
    xoxo E

  2. Ah! You look just like your mom! Pretty ladies! Ana
