happy autumn happy thanksgiving!

This weekend us folks up here in Canada will be celebrating Thanksgiving and I think that it has to be one of my most favourite holidays of all. The reason why is quite simple...because we get to come together for no other reason than to count our blessings and be thankful for what we have. It's not about gifts, it's not about fancy parties, or cards and's simply about showing gratitude and I love the simplicity of that.
This Thanksgiving is going to be a bit different from others, this year will won't be with our family and we won't be going back home. And I'm not sure if it is because this holiday is fast approaching but for some reason I have been terribly homesick this past week. I miss my family, I miss my friends and I miss Ottawa in the fall....such a beautiful place to be in the fall.
So this year will be different, but there are some exciting things to look forward to also, like a dinner on Sunday at our friend Leanne's house (who I have now adopted as my surrogate family) and then on Tuesday a dream of mine will come true.
On Tues Winslow, Noah and I plus our good friends (Sarah and family) will be going up to a cabin that is apparently situated in the most picturesque location ever. Imagine snow capped mountains, a crystal clear and still lake, trees as far as the eye can see, I can't wait to show you all what our time there was like. We are going to bring up everything (pre made at our houses) for a turkey dinner and I will attempt to make more pies without them falling upside down.
This has always been a dream of mine, to go up to a rustic cabin for Thanksgiving and I'm just thankful for the opportunity to be able to do this!
So that is what is coming up this weekend. I'm so excited to be able to stretch out a little bit more of Autumn. Autumn is after all my most favourite season of the year.
I hope that you have a beautiful weekend where ever you are dear friends. I have a few posts already planned that will roll out over the holiday weekend. I'll be back soon with stories and pictures of our time at Rainbow Lake.
Bye for now!
