Canada Day 2016
This lyric from Canada's national anthem perfectly encapulates my native land. Since living abroad, I have a newfound appreciation for my home. From it's receptive multiculturalism, political and economic stability, overly polite culture ["sorry" about the not-so humble brag!], majestic scenery and yummy food [Mmm.... maple syrup or poutine anyone?], Canada is a truly magnificent place to live.
Before having kids, I would spend the day at the beach, followed by spectacular fireworks over the water. Fast-forward a few years, we decided the logistics of juggling the kids coupled with today's icky weather just wasn't worth it. Instead we opted to have a quiet day at home as a family. These simple moments with my loves are the ones I will treasure the most.
Happy Canada Day! 🇨🇦
