Today in Canada we are celebrating Thanksgiving. I had the chance to visit my father this year since I’m not 18 hours away in the North, and it was nice to be able to celebrate the day with family.

Usually, when Thanksgiving would come around I would hold a potluck at my house for my friends to come and celebrate with us. Most of my friends had family back in Southern Ontario and so it was nice to celebrate with people that we knew, talking about school and life, or just acted like crazy people like we usually did.

This year was different. I drove 1 hour to get to my dad’s place and celebrated with turkey around a table with family. It wasn’t the wild get togethers I was used to but it was nice to celebrate something after having such a tough/ busy couple of years. We gave thanks to our health, those that we love, and the support that we got from friends/ family through some of the toughest moments of our life. We laughed and told stories about when I was a kid or past Thanksgivings – like when my dad bought a turkey loaf instead of a turkey one year and we were surprised how good it tasted.

I just wanted to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving to all you and your family. Be thankful for the love you have and the people that grace your life everyday with happiness. Remember stay safe, be creative, and until next time – toodles! ❤
