Canadian Thanksgiving ushers in the brisk cool mornings, brilliant foliage and conjures up inexplicable cravings for root vegetables and comfort food. I love this time of year! And this Thanksgiving weekend was the perfect mixture of frosty temperatures and sunshiny blue skies outside - and cosy warmth inside. Hubby and I hosted my family for a phenomenal feast.
Today we took in a local fall fair as we do every Thanksgiving weekend, and then made our way over to my MIH's for a delectable encore turkey and ham dinner. Now I know why we call it stuffing... Hubby and I left stuffed with feast and contentment.
And now we face a week of left overs, and a whole pot of squash soup that I forgot to serve. Today I wrote out my gratitude list and intentions... the most important of which is to make a conscious effort to appreciate and express my gratitude daily, and make every day, a day of "thanksgiving". As it should be.
Here are some captures from my weekend.
