Travel: quebec city, quebec, canada

First of all I need to apologize for taking so long to post something. We went through the process of owning our first home recently and it has been way too overwhelming. But the good news is that there will be lots of new DIY projects and images coming your way. I have been posting a lot of Instagram and Facebook if you are keeping track. 

So here is a long overdue post on our trip to Quebec. There are lots more photos to share since we took over a thousand photographs combined. There are two amazing churches that needs to be shared in pictures with you. Looking at these photographs only makes me wonder how I managed to come back to Dallas. I have never seen such a beautiful city as Quebec City. Yet! ;)

This city has a bit of everything in it which is very evident when you look through the set of selected images here. It was very hard to pick and choose. One of the oldest cities in North America, the city sits on the Saint Lawrence River and there are amazing views of the River since the city is also very hilly. The city still preserves the colonial fort that dates back to 1608 and its narrow streets, stone walls, cobblestone streets, palatial roofs and flamboyant architecture gives it an European feel. This European feel is all throughout Quebec. Remember my post on Montreal

Take the photo journey...

Food: german inspired meat stuffed cabbage

This recipe is dedicated to my wonderful friend Anja. Yes, she is German and she inspired me to make this tasty dish. There are various types of stuffed cabbage in the German cuisine. I obviously added my own flavor to it. I used ground beef to make this but any other ground meat can be used to make this dish even more healthier than it already is. I will definitely try other variations to this recipe since it was so effortless to make. 

Ingredients I used,

Dwell: a warm bangladeshi home surrounded by green

This intimate and tastefully decorated home belongs to my artistic cousin and her beautiful family. They live in Canada and the green you see in the pictures is truly that vivid and deeply saturated. The split level house is from the 70's and has four levels - a large basement with lots of storage and a full bath, a cosy living room that leads to the lush backyard, the tv room with the kitchen/dining framed by large windows, and then the private spaces boasting the bedrooms. The home has been completely renovated so it has the wonderful layout with large operable windows and vintage details with all the sleek finishes and furnishings. A lush green outdoor hugs this home tightly all around it. The first photo is a view of the front yard and the street it sits on. 

This is the cozy tv room that leads to the lush backyard.

My First *Feature*

I am humbled by this feature on thanks to Tudor Davis. To tell you the truth it was very difficult to do something that was all about me. Personally I don't think I have accomplished anything. It was just a little effort - but looking at this makes me happy and humbled. I wouldn't have been able to compile this feature without the help of my beloved husband and my dearest cousin. And besides that I am forever thankful to everyone in and out of my life.
