I’m back from my vacation and it was amazing! I’m incredibly sad to be home and back in reality. It definitely wasn’t a long enough trip (but when is it ever?) and I’m already dreaming about the next one. Continue reading “I’m Back!”

Christmas!

I hope everyone had the best Christmas ever, or whichever holiday is it you celebrated, if any – I hope you had the very best weekend!

Thanksgiving is just around the corner for us Canadians, and I for one am super stoked. I love Thanksgiving, mostly because there is so much good food to eat. I’m even more pumped this year because this will be my first real Thanksgiving in three years – the past two years I’ve been working (and eating leftovers just isn’t the same) and three years ago I was in France, where Thanksgiving isn’t really a thing. This year I get to have two Thanksgiving meals, one with my family and one with my boyfriend’s family, so I’d say that makes up pretty well for the past three years. Two days in a row of fabulous food – that’s one thing to be thankful for alright. But that’s not the only thing I’m thankful for; I’ve got a whole list! Here are the top ten things I’m thankful for, in no particular order. Continue reading “Giving Thanks for Thanksgiving”
