It’s thanksgiving weekend in Canada!
Every time I think of Canadian Thanksgiving and American Thanksgiving I think of this moment in HIMYM.
So seeing as we have a whole weekend to spend being thankful I thought I’d share what I’m thankful for this year!
Ok this is an obvious one. Most people are thankful for their family (I hope). This year however Scott and I got married so our families combined and it is awesome. I’m so thankful for all the people that came to celebrate with us and who made us feel so loved.
This is weird I know, but after working in an industry I hated for 3 years I’m very very thankful to be back in school and pursuing a new dream. It feels like a fresh start and I’m so grateful for Scott’s support in this venture.
I’m completely in awe of technology and how far it advances every year. The new computers, watches, phones, and apps blow my mind. I saw an app today that shows you what your tattoo will look like on so you can test it before you ink it. Like what? Amazing!
4. Free Time
As I get older I appreciate free time more and more. You really learn to value it when you’re juggling family, friends, school, work, business ventures, etc. Savour it!
I love my Country! We are known for being too nice, apologizing too much, playing a lot of hockey, and basically living off maple syrup and donuts. I’m not upset at all by these sterotypes. Could be worse right? Plus Canada is just a great place to live in; we have beautiful scenery, we’re huge, have free health care, and are a pretty friendly bunch.
We brought our sweet red toy poodle home on Thanksgiving weekend last year and had no idea how much he would change our lives for the better. I’ve had dogs all my life but this was Scott’s first and his attachment too him is so strong and adorable. Rory basically makes all of our excursions way more fun, is the best cuddle buddy, and keeps me company while Scott is away for work. He’s amazing.
Two weeks till we leave for our Honeymoon and we could not be more excited. We will be going to the Barcelo Beach resort in the Mayan Rivera. I’ve been there before, but Scott hasn’t and I know how much he’s going to love it. It’s an all inclusive resort with so much to do and see. Can we just leave now?
Are you celebrating Thanksgiving this weekend? Even if you’re not let me know what you’re thankful for!
