In Canada this our Thanksgiving weekend. Next to Christmas this is one of my favorite holidays. It's not that I like Turkey that much, its the fellowship that I enjoy. There is so much to be thankful for in this life, and what better way to do so than with family and friends.

We started off our long weekend with a beautiful drive to Shelburne, Nova Scotia. My parents are here for the month and they couldn't have picked a better time to come. The temperature yesterday was 24 degrees and we were able to sit outside on the patio at The Sea Dog Pub in Shelburne and enjoy an amazing locally brewed beer from the Boxing Rock Brewery while enjoying the fall colors that adorned the harbour as the boats bobbed on their moorings swinging to and fro with the tide.

I truly give thanks to be able to enjoy this time with my parents. My husband and I had a ball driving all the scenic routes from here to Shelburne, enjoying the many ocean vistas, a gorgeous white sandy beach and an idyllic little town at the end of the journey. Time together is so precious and it means so much to be able to share these special moments together.

Now I look forward to the Turkey supper ahead that we will prepare as a family over some good wine and laughter. Happy Thanksgiving everyone. From my house to yours.
