Walking along the cobblestone streets that are still dusted with snow (despite the fact that the calendar has declared that it is Spring) never gets old. I'm still pinching myself over the fact that this city, with it's European charm but distinctly Canadian feel, is now our home. Admittedly, when we weren't in Spain or Quebec City, we were indoors for much of the winter, keeping warm. A considerable amount of time here has been spent doing the commonplace things that are to be expected when you move. Now that we're finally beginning to feel settled, I'm hoping to start exploring the city again with fresh eyes. - Mina
