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.
As per my October Wish List, it’s not October unless you’ve visited a corn maze and shot-up some zombies with friends. 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.
This year, one of my bests and her husband hosted the first annual Friendsgiving. 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.
We’ve been hosting the family Thanksgiving at my parent’s cottage for the past few years now, some years we have a few more faces, other years it’s a bit more intimate, depending on who is travelling to where to celebrate. 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.
