GIVING THANKS

IMG_1518Wishing all my Canadian readers a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend. It was a rainy day in Toronto so I hope everyone was warm and cozy with their loved ones.

Today’s post is a quick one as I am mildly sedated from copious amounts of turkey, pie, and being 8 months pregnant. Here is a quick round up of what I am particularly thankful for this year:

MY 4 KIDS

MY HUSBAND Lisa Canning Wedding.jpg Love this man. I’m thankful for almost 6 years of marriage and Josh’s example and leadership in our family. And the fact he understands the path of an entrepreneur is full of adventure. And he’s very easy on the eyes.

I GET TO DO THIS FOR A LIVING

And finally, I watched Les Miserables on Friday night in Toronto. Screen shot 2013-10-13 at 10.06.20 PM

Paintings by Victor Hugo are the backdrop for many scenes and they come to life through animation. The combination of new staging, choreography, a fantastic cast and moving backdrop left me inspired- and of course in tears. It was a great way to kick off the Thanksgiving weekend.

And finally, really finally, I leave with this gorgeous quote on gratitude that I stumbled upon on my dear friend Natalie DiScala‘s Facebook wall. Such a great message from author Melody BeattieOriginal image via.
