Nothing big planned for this week, Saturday is my 11th Anniversary and we don’t have any big plans for the weekend, with me being away at Blissdom and then Thanksgiving and a dinner party on the 25th it just didn’t fit in this month. We’ll likely just order in wings and rent a movie. We’re

Happy (Canadian) Thanksgiving!

It’s Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada. I love all things Thanksgiving, including but not limited to, turkey, desserts and spending time with family.
