Thanksgiving

You've probably guessed from the title of my post that this long weekend us Canucks will be celebrating Thanksgiving. It's one of my favorite holidays of the year because all of my family gets together at my Aunt's cottage near a lake outside the city and we go for long walks near the water, play games like Cranium and Taboo, laugh 'til we cry and stuff our faces with delicious food like candied yams and pumpkin pie until we pass out from all the energy it took to eat said food. It's a beautiful time of year and a perfect time to reflect on how grateful I am for all the wonderful blessings in my life including my family, D., my friends, my sweet nephew, my crazy but lovable cat, my health, the freedom I have in the country I live in, a bed to sleep in, the money I have to be able to buy the clothes and make-up I blog about on here when some people don't have enough money to even eat.... I sometimes take this all for granted when I should thank my lucky stars every single day.

I also want to thank my readers for supporting this blog. I know every blogger says this but I really do appreciate every single comment and visit and am so inspired by all of you. I sincerely thank you from the bottom of my heart : ). I wish you all a wonderful weekend! Happy Thanksgiving to my Canadian girls!

Happy Early Thanksgiving!! (I still have to wait a whole month and a half :( )
This post is so true, I always have to remind myself to be thankful of what I have, because sometimes I take things for granted.

Oh, so early? Now I am confused, I thought Thanksgiving was AFTER Halloween! Well anyway, we don't usually celebrate Thanksgiving but I think I'd like to make it a family tradition because what you've described is really so, so nice... And you are right, I need to be grateful more often, I just forget and that is terrible! Have a lovely weekend and family celebration.

Thank you everyone!

Cafe Bellini: American Thanksgiving is after Halloween. Canada is different, it's always celebrated the second week of October.
