Oh Canmore, My Love

Dear Canmore,

I love you... 


Last weekend I tagged on to my sister's little family getaway (sweet sister, I know) for some much needed relaxation time. 
I love going to Canmore because even though it's only an hour away, it feels like a world away from your regular life. 
I love looking in any direction and seeing divine mountains, and any possibility to run into a majestic deer really gets me going. 

I got there on Friday night and Kate, Mike, Emma and I went to dinner at the most amazing Bison in Banff

It was my first time but have been wanting to check it out on account of the fact that every single member in my family raves about it every time they go (which happens to be quite a lot) 
I really meant to take pictures of my meal so that I could share it with you all, but in my daze of great food and pork belly - oh how I love pork belly - I completely forgot to log what I was stuffing into my mouth.
So for that, I apologize.
I did however, manage to get a terrible picture of my dessert - Caramelized Banana Cream Pie with Sponge Toffee and a little baby Fudgesicle. Yikes! In a good way...

So now I'm going to be obsessed with making sponge toffee, I will let you know how that goes.
Saturday we walked around Canmore, did some shopping and for dinner went to my Canmore fav, Crazy Weed 

I had some amazing Mac & Cheese with goat cheddar and double smoked bacon... so delish! 
Even though it was a quick little trip, I filled my time with great food and the bestest company. 

So thank you Canmore, for being my escape on those times when you just need a little break.
