As you might know, our family of three (four counting baby to be as Beaumont stayed home) spent Thanksgiving up north in Mont Tremblant, Canada. It is a small French-Canadian town situated about an hour and a half north of Montreal. It is stunning, charming, breathtaking, quaint, & truly magical. It was the perfect place to transition from Thanksgiving to the Christmas spirit. Adorned with real live Christmas trees left, right, & center each one was wrapped in lights & garland. Ornaments hung from larger alpine trees around the village. Christmas music played in every shop, restaurant, hotel lobby, & bar. The year-round Christmas shop was to die for with its abundance of unique ornaments and ornate Santa Claus & Nutcracker collections. Holiday eats & drinks were in the air as well. Oh and let's not forget the freezing cold temperatures (in the negatives!) and fluffy white snow scattered here, there, & everywhere.

Ryan spent the mornings snowboarding on the mountain while Adelaide & I indulged in crepes, hot cocoa, and walking the village. In the afternoons, we enjoyed family lunch before resting up with vacation naps. We enjoyed delicious fare from all around the world for our celebratory dinners nightly.

On one of our days, Adelaide went to snow school to play with her fellow little people while I emerged myself in the spa atmosphere. Nestled in nature and only accessible by bridge, the Scandinavian Spa was the epitome of relaxation & rejuvenation. I could live in the rustic yet inviting environment and get a prenatal massage three times a day. You wouldn't hear one complaint from me!

There are no words nor pictures that can do the beauty & character of Mont Tremblant justice. You just need to see it for yourself. Equipped with activities and scenery for all season, there really isn't a bad time to visit. So get to planning...this is a must on any bucket list!
