Banff celebration 2015

It's been a busy fall with school starting (back to work for me), working on blogposts and Youtube videos and personal life. We recently celebrated our wedding anniversary - 31 years! - with a trip to Banff. We are fortunate to live so close to the Rocky Mountains with Banff an hour away by car. 

Even though it was late in October, we had not too cool temperatures and sunny skies. We did some shopping, lots of walking and some eating too (they do have more than one candy shop!).

I managed to fit in a visit to the Sugarpine Quilt Store in Canmore too. It was on the way back to Calgary, after all :)

Here are a few photos from the week-end.

We walked from the Banff townsite to Bow Falls, just below the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel.

And no anniversary week-end would be complete without a spectacular dessert - and this one was no exception!

 
 Yum!

Yum!

 

And yes, I did eat it all - on my own :)
