Ahhh I can almost smell the sweet potato pie baking in the oven, picture my bro in law carving the turkey and my sister setting up an epic table setting with an array of mouth watering side dishes.

For my friends south of the border, next Monday us Canucks (aka Canadians) will be celebrating Thanksgiving #fistpump

I have a confession to make.

I enjoy Thanksgiving more than Christmas. I suppose it’s for many reasons really.

There’s just less pomp & circumstance with Thanksgiving. There’s no rush or stress to buy the perfect gift, fear of getting trampled in the mall or episodes of road rage in busy mall parking lots.

Instead the emphasis is on the food and cozy gatherings with friends and family. It’s an opportunity to reflect on what we’re really thankful for.

I am most thankful for…

Food.

Ha – no, seriously I am but I’m also thankful for life, an amazing partner by my side, a loving family, supportive friends and that I don’t have to fear that Donald Trump might be the next American president. Ouch – sorry U.S peeps I know that stung just a little. Hey – there’s always 2020 🙂
