Happy Canadian Thanksgiving!
It feels like we’re neck deep in pumpkin, apples and leaves (yay!). I’m feeling pretty reflective these days. We had a lovely summer full of camping, visits with friends and Edmonton firsts (Folkfest, Instameets and visits to Drumheller, butler-service). We had a constant influx of friends visiting including two of my besties who naturally joined me for some temporary, sparkly tattoos.
I’m looking forward to a few fall firsts: my first 5km, my first Halloween in our new city and learning to use In Design on my own after a fab two day class here.
Crafternoons are on the horizon – maybe some macramé or screen printing. Time to focus on my health, too. Enough with this baby chub I say! Snowboard season is coming and we’re not far from some world class powder.
So in the spirit of gratitude, I thought I would share some ephemera I’m thankful for (other than, of course, family, friends and good fortune).
Our recent trip to Vancouver – lots of fresh (cheap) sushi, sun and toes in waves a la above.
Apples: apple pumpkin pie, apple crumble, apples in smoothies and the winter apple tree in the backyard and my partner the picker. Bring on the Thanksgiving apple pie!
The right to vote – Canada’s election day is around the corner and I’m excited to exercise my franchise.

Coleman Hell is my new musical guilty pleasure – specifically All the Monsters.
Have you heard about the new super cheap flights to Iceland from Toronto by Wow Air? Time to start trip planning.
