Give Thanks + Give With Love

    Hello Sweet November! November is home to my favorite holiday, Thanksgiving Day!  First off, I am very thankful for this “fall” salty sea breeze!  This is as close as it gets for us in Cayman to fall/winter weather.  Lets be real, it gets as cold as 70’s-80’s, nevertheless it is a wonderful cool breeze. I am hoping this cool wind sticks around right into the new year.  For some of us we need to break out the sweaters.  I have been missing Toronto and my winter wardrobe, so now I finally have an excuse to start wearing my sweaters and blazers.  This is my favorite time of year.  The air has changed.  It feels like something different is in the air, something magical.  I guess it is just the wonder and enchantment of this time of year, as soon as the sea breeze rolls in the countdown to the holidays and all the magic they hold begins.  I have already been pinning recipes to try out for this year’s thanksgiving dinner, and so far …

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 …
