The Unworldly Travelers - 5 Reasons I Will Make Travel a Priority for My Kids
I absolutely love this post and agree with her wholeheartedly. Thanks to my parents, I have been lucky enough to travel in Canada and the United States throughout my childhood. In addition to our family trips, my parents also encouraged me to learn a second language - being Canadian I obviously learned French. Because of this recommendation I completed two degrees in French and had the opportunity to study abroad in France where I met my American husband. The decision to learn another language has impacted my life in so many positive ways and has instilled in me a desire to travel, to understand other cultures and to learn about culture through another language. For this reason, I think number three on her list is my favourite and I know that these will be words to live by as I continue through life.
Everything A La Mode - Chocolate Covered Almonds
So, if I were to have an addiction, it would be chocolate (this may already be the case). One of my favourite spots in Halifax is the Choco-Café - they carry a ton of beautiful chocolates in addition to their café menu. My favourites are the Almondos and the Rasberry Cheesecake - but honestly, I love them all. They also have a discount for those who work in the area - score! My most recent discovery there is their chocolate covered almonds - with cocoa dusting! Absolutely delicious. My only problem is that I go there far too often, so, the link I have for you today is something that you can do at home that may compare (minimally) to the wonders of the Choco-Café (if you are ever in Halifax - you must go).
