Seasons Come and Seasons Go

Whenever winter is approaching, it seems like there's a grumpy vibe around town.  Shorter days, no vitamin D, less fresh air, sludgy streets, feeling like the michelin man. 

BUTTTTT it's kind of neat that we get to experience all of these beautiful phases. Plus, winter is that time where we get to retreat, be cozy and live a less hectic life.  We get to eat warm foods, drink tea, bundle up and snuggle up, binge watch, and drink spiked cider.  

Some snapshots below that capture the diversity (not all Canadian but you get the gist).

One Fifty

When you're in the same place for so long, it's hard to see the culture that surrounds you.  It's when you go away, experience something new, that you start to recognize what makes your home unique.  When I travelled to Italy last fall, I could really feel an appreciation for Canada and was so happy to fly home over the beautiful fall colours!

Hope you all have a great Canada Day long weekend!

Here are a few of my fav's from Jim's Canadian travels...
