PWK: Special Delivery

Happy Kindness Wednesday!

Happy Thanksgiving Canada xo

  Happy Thanksgiving Canada! xo Growing up I celebrated the American Thanksgiving, and since living in Toronto I now celebrate Thanksgiving twice a year! Thank you Canada.  Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday of the year.  What I love most about this holiday is that Thanksgiving is a whole day dedicated to spending time with family and friends and more importantly to reflect on what we are most thankful for.  At Thanksgiving dinner my family would go around the table and say at least one thing we were thankful for, and that is how I think of Thanksgiving.  A time to reflect on our blessings. There is so much to be thankful for in this world.  Just walking down a nature trail, shows you how beautiful this world is.  Being surrounded by trees that seem to touch the sky, and are transforming into gorgeous earth tones and gold, can really put things into perspective.  We really are so small in this world, yet we make the hugest impact on the environment.  Our planet deserves so much …

Apples + Pumpkins

October is my favorite month of the year! I just love fall it is such a beautiful season, the leaves changing into rich earthy colors, burnt orange, gold, and rustic shades of red.  Part of all the fun, is its that time of year to go apple picking or searching out for that rich pumpkin to make your delicious Thanksgiving Day Pumpkin Pie! (Love, Love, Love Pumpkin Pie + Thanksgiving Day).   These simple joys in life I get to take advantage of in the lovely city of Toronto.  In Cayman, we are richly blessed with our trees lush green all year long.  My favorite time during fall back home, is that change in the air when hurricane season is over, and the nor’wester starts rolling in… The sea breeze becomes cooler and the sound of the waves crashing on the shore is my memory of fall/winter back home. Apple Picking is such a cool experience!  It is very humbling, not everyday do you get a chance to walk in the shoes of a farmer, …

Snapshots of the city…

  Hello from Toronto! Traveling back and forth is always fun for me, as I simply love traveling and living in different places.  Recently, I have been able to test out my new camera, and take some great photos with the help of one of my very good friends.  I had a fantastic day exploring the city of Toronto while taking photos with a friend of mine who is an amazing photographer!   Today is a bit of a short but sweet post.  I just wanted to share with you some eco friendliness I found while running around the city taking snapshots of everything that interested me. Eco Friendly Transport! Love to see that there are a lot of people in the city using bicycles to get around, and how cool is this bike! It has a repurposed wooden crate to carry stuff.  Just awesome!  It’s a tree hugger’s bicycle!    Here are some snapshots of nature merging with the city.   I just love stumbling upon beautiful parks in a city, surrounded by historic buildings. …
