I know this is on top of everyone’s mind. What is with me and Montreal? Why do I love the city so much? Why do I adore every aspect of it? Why I have fallen in love with a place that is dear to my heart?
I am here to answer your questions. I have loved Montreal since I was a little girl, but in the early 2000’s those feelings escalated even more, and now I cannot get enough of it. Montreal is a place so dear to my heart, especially because of the lovely people I have there and areas around. Life really changed when I found the people who love, appreciate and care about me for me and they have a special place in my heart. Just seeing the streets, eating at the nice restaurants, the scenery, the liveliness, the energy, the busy old port, the people, the buildings, the skyline, the signs, the street signs, the autoroutes, everything keeps me speechless everytime. It is truly a remarkable place where I have fallen in love with. It is an indescribable feeling being in that city. It gives me energy all the time, and the smile on my face never leaves. It is a unique place where there is never a dull moment for me. Please do not take living in Montreal for granted. Every place has its ups and downs, but Montreal to me is place where it is truly awesome. Always things to do. If you want to know anything about the city, history, eats, places, and areas around, you know who to contact. Moi!Me. People do not realize and understand why, but now you do and so much more.
It is extremely difficult for me to part all the time everything and it makes my throat heavy, my eyes water, and it happens everytime. I am sure a lot of people are the same way in a sense, but me I feel so different being there. I feel its my home away from home and here is why:
The main reason are my lovely and beautiful sisters and friends and how they put a big impact on my life. It is a great feeling to finally feel great and positive and to have friends who finally accept, appreciate and love me for who I am. They keep me functional everyday of my life and who keep me going. For the first time ever i feel this way. They are like my family and they are part of my family. Always and forever. Toujours! Je Taime! It is truly a beautiful feeling.
GOD BLESS MY MONTREAL FAMILY
GOD BLESS MONTREAL
GOD BLESS QUEBEC
Lively place, memorable souvenirs and great friends a beautiful place to visit and have fun.
Nice post Talin.
Very heartfelt. I don’t have a favorite place per-say. Nature woman here and I LOVE LOVE, did I mention I love the woods. I’m not sure if it is my ancestral background or the way I was brought up but I simply love the woods. I walk in wonder of the trees and the way branches reach out. Animals scampering or a bear lumbering through the woods. Seeing a wolf walking in my backyard which is all forest, I’m not a city girl at all, the woods are my playground.
Have you read Willa Cather’s Shadows on the Rock set in Quebec? She fell inlove with the place also. Thanks for thelike and thefollow on myblog! Let’s keep in touch.
i miss montreal. it’s been a long time since i’ve been back!
I see you’re following my blog here on WordPress. Thanks for the support! I, too, love Montreal, mostly because my favorite cousins live there.
How wonderful to find the perfect home for your heart – people who love and support you and a city that touches you deep inside. I’m so happy for you!
Thank you for stopping by my site and subscribing. I really do appreciate it.
What a lovely post! I have never been to Montreal, but it is now almost at the top of my bucket list! Thanks for sharing your deep feelings with us.
Talin, I totally feel the same way about Montreal. My husband and I spend every Christmas there – no family, just us. It is such a welcoming, wintry place, and I look forward to returning the next year as soon as I leave. It is so nice to “meet” someone else who feels the same way.
Thanks for dropping by and checking out my blog. I’d love to check in on yours on occasion as well!
I’ve never been to Canada but would love to make it some time. I’ve heard a lot of great things about Montreal, Vancouver and some of the other big cities. It all looks so beautiful up there!
Thanks for stopping by my blog. My person says she’s only been in the western provinces of Canada, but they’re really beautiful. Me – I’ve never been out of Arizona. Maybe someday I’ll be lucky enough to travel. It was fun hearing about Montreal.
Wow I wish I can visit Montreal in my lifetime. My relatives are in Sask, I hope they can invite me to go there, and then I could have a peek at Montreal. I wonder how far Sask is from Montreal. I’ll have a look now in the map 🙂
Thanks for sharing
Wonderful blog! Canada is a beautiful country. Someday I hope to visit Montreal and see the beautiful sites and see the Canadiens play hockey! God Bless You! Keep up the great posts! 🙂
Canada is beautiful, but Montreal is my happy place 🙂
I can feel your passion for this place and reading your love letter made me want to visit. I know what it means to fall in love with a place that embraces you and makes you feel more alive. I also fell in love with an old Port City as a child. New Orleans is my Montreal.
You just made my eyes water! I lived in Montreal for 2 years and left last year…I miss it, its streets,the weather(yeah no kidding!), the food, the people…Montreal has been good to me in my worst moments, and it never let me down..God bless indeed!
Thank you for following my blog 🙂
