While winter is fast approaching here, but I think Thanksgiving is the perfect time to think about all the wonderful things about the fall season. The leaves, the colours, the smells, the chill in the wind, the warmth of pumpkin-y baked goods, and the list goes on. Fall and winter are my two favourite seasons, mainly because I love the fashion associated with them and also because the mood around those seasons is so unexplainable and beautiful. I think Kinfolk did an amazing job capturing the essence of fall (as always) in this short little video.

And on a more personal note, I just got back from spending a fun evening with some girls from my community group. I am really growing to love all of them (and the boys too!) and look forward to spending at least one night a week with them. Tonight was a shower for a lady from Initiative who just had a baby boy. He was TOO cute. I can't get over it. I seriously should not be allowed to hang out with children, baby envy forever. 

I hope you are all having a wonderful week, and for those celebrating, have a wonderful thanksgiving tomorrow!

American Thanksgiving, Musings, and Life in General

Why hello there, to all my new followers and all those who have put up with my LONG MIA sessions recently. But, as school is coming to a close (who am I kidding, more like as school is getting more serious), I am trying to focus a bit on my blog, my friends and life.

Since, I am an American, stuck up here in Canada for the wonderful holiday of Thanksgiving, I have rounded up two southern girls to celebrate with me! Not being with family on Thanksgiving is still a bit weird, but growing up happens and moving out happens and it's new. Everything is new. And this is different, but not bad different, just different different.

So here is to new traditions!

On another note, way back in October (honestly feels like years ago), the Canadian celebrated their Thanksgiving and I was lucky enough to join in on this celebration of thankfulness! I was invited to one of my best friends places in Ontario. It was nothing short of magical. We spent the long weekend roaming around her tiny town, wandering in the forest, chatting with her family and eating SO much food. I have nothing to complain about.
Please explain to me how life gets any better than this. Also, there were about a million more photos that I didn't post but I'm sure they will show up at one point!

What are you thankful for this holiday season?
