after a long twelve-hour bus ride, it was so refreshing to finally reach my destination: montréal. taking a taxi cab up to my sister and brother-in-law’s sweet little city bungalow made me so happy. i find their presence alone to be so comforting. they always set me at ease. the first night here, we drank tea and caught up, savored peanut rice noodles and a bottle of crisp white wine. we even made old fashioned macarons, which we burnt to a crisp, but they were still edible. oh, yes they were. most of all, we snuggled and relished in how wonderful and special sisterhood truly is.
