Celebrating October

Note: Many things happen on Wednesdays. The plastics wear pink, we wish others happy hump day (which just sounds so wrong) and I usually post one of my four monthly series posts. Tonight, that was suppose to be a Book of the Month post BUT given the absolute busy month I’ve had doing all the awesome things with Onboardly and traveling – I haven’t picked up a new book in weeks. So instead you get THIS post. Kthxbai. 

I love October.

Next to the summer months of July and August, it’s one of my favorite months of the year. Which is totally why I made an October Wish List to ensure that not an item was missed! Thanksgiving is always extra special and this year, I was lucky enough to have friends home from all over to celebrate it with, including all the way from Australia!

Here are a few of my favorite snapshots from this perfect October weekend.

We had a fantastic Friday night and braved the rain to hit up the Green Pig Country Market for a frightening good time. We then ended the night in true Canadian fashion – with hot poutines the size of our heads from the Big Stop.

Complete with my favorite humans, some furry friends (in festive attire, I might add) and the newest mini-humans to join our squad – it was a perfect day with a lot of laughs and some really amazing food. Take note: you NEED to be adding a Friendsgiving to your annual traditions.

Though we were a smaller bunch this year, it was nevertheless a perfect day with amazing food, beautiful fall decor (I get all my DIY decorating talent from my mama!) and wonderful family.

Needless to say, Tuesday morning’s sunrise before I drove back to the city was the perfect end to an awesome weekend.
