St-Michel de Vaudreuil
Today is Mike's birthday - HAPPY BIRTHDAY MIKE! - and last night we went to his Mom's house in Vaudreuil for some good old fashioned birthday cake! We were driving right in rush hour and opted to take the scenic route there, which is considerably longer, but better than sitting in traffic. I saw so many perfect blog-picture taking opportunities along the way, but we didn't want to be late for dinner. We ended up making record time and so Mike suggested we stop at his favourite spot in his little home town - St Michel church. It's a 400 year old church and it's just beautiful. We went for midnight mass last year at Christmas just so Mike could show me the big Archangel that he wants to get tattooed on him someday...
Anyway, the lighting was all off for getting any good pictures of the building. It wasn't until we snuck out behind the church and saw the light pouring in through the old tombstones like that, that we decided it was the perfect opportunity for some blog photos!
(I hope I'm not the only one who has blog photos on the brain so constantly!)
Dinner was wonderful and Mike had a great time! We took the fast way home and both fell asleep upon arrival like the two old folks that we really are on the inside. Tonight we'll be barbecue-ing at his house with his friends and on Monday I have a special surprise birthday outting planned for him!!! I'm sure you'll all know all about it once it happens! :)
My apartment is coming together beautifully! Fall breezes keep drifting in through all the open windows and our front porch is just about made for sipping coffee early in the morning. We've been listening to perfect Fall music and watching old movies like the 1930's version of Little Women! I'll be posting more once the empty-box occupation is over....
