What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving? 7 October 2016 It’s that time of year again, when mornings are crisp and long, and stretch lazily under a haze of fog; when afternoons are pricked with cool breezes and perfumed with wisps of wood smoke; where trees are ablaze with fiery reds and paths are blanketed with leaf litter and dimpled with sunlight; when evenings are swept with long, purple shadows and hum with the trill of crickets…. It’s fall in Canada, and it’s incredible! Fall is also a good time to be thankful. For this Thanksgiving weekend, we wish all of you the best. As you spend this time with friends and family, what are you most thankful for? Here’s our list: Nicole: COFFEE. And fall weather.
