There never will be a perfect time to chase a dream. Life moves quick and obstacles are abundant- so throw caution to the wind and live a life you’re meant to live. And hence as I picked up to blow dry my hair, I changed my mind looking at the beautiful view from the window of my room which tempted me to not to anymore waste a minute and thus I quickly grabbed the hat and stepped out on my foot to discover a new world, the old world charm of the old Quebec City which is undeniable.

It was a gift from Simons department stores to the City of Québec for its 400th anniversary. The people of Québec City immediately took it to their hearts, and it has become a source of pride.

Wearing a white in summers is so cool, and I chose to wear a white lace dress with flip flops. It’s chic n comfy and cool for a summer noon outing in the open streets and farms. A happy weekend with friends or family is well spent and I’m thankful to God for bestowing so much beauty around and in my life too.
