Giving Thanks


It's Canadian Thanksgiving this weekend and as I took a walk around my neighbourhood, I couldn't help feeling such appreciation and thankfulness for where I am today.

I am thankful for my gorgeous home and yard -


for the trails that are right outside my door -



for the beautiful scenery I enjoy every day -




for gorgeous fall colour -


for a neighbourhood filled with people who look out for one another -


and for the lovely pets that I have been blessed to share my life with:




I am thankful for so many more things, but if I listed all of them my post would go on forever.  There is one more thing to mention here that I am thankful for.  I am so thankful for all of you who come and read what I have to share.  Thank you for being here and coming back time and time again dear friends.


Happy Thanksgiving!

  1. So beautiful, Anne. I love the leaves and the river. At least it would be a river here, maybe it is creek. Happy Thanksgiving. Likewise. XOXO

    Where I live, it is finally cool enough that we are venturing outdoors again.

  15. I hope you had a great thanksgiving. It's really important to stop some time and register all we have we can be thankful for. I had a really crappy day today, but I'll make a point in bed tonight before falling asleep to find what was great about that day, because there's always something.
