Something you learn when you’ve chosen to accept boxes into your life – living around them rather than unpacking – is, they can be dangerous. You trip often, get trapped in a corner behind a stack and get scratched – a weird, rug-burn-esq scratch that is sensitive for hours after. Needless to say, I’m starting to rethink my initial acceptance and am beginning to devote all my spare time to unpacking.
Before this change of heart, Jack and I had been spending our spare minutes exploring, resting and eating. I haven’t been taking OOTD photos though because a) I need to figure out this whole photos-in-densley-populated-areas thing and, b) I’ve been relying on old favourites [Saturday, Sunday, Monday, Saturday, Sunday]. Luckily I have two more pre-wedding outfits that I’ve really been wanting to share AND I’ve been instagramming like it’s nobody’s business… although since I posted all of them, I suppose it’s everybody’s business. If you follow me on instagram you may have already seen these, but here is the move and our first week in Montreal in snapshots.

We’ve only been here a week and I feel right at home. It’s a funny thing to move 3,000 miles to a brand new city and to feel as though nothing major has really changed in your life. Although, I suppose, it’s pretty easy to settle in when the person who you think of as home is right by your side. We’ll see how I feel once winter hits though…
