We've finally made it to August and although most people might see that as a bad thing, I see it as a great thing! I've always found that August in Montreal was the best. 

Because there's some pressure to fit everything we haven't gotten done yet that we said we were going to do into this one month. But that just means that there's constantly fun and awesome things going on in the city.
