Today’s photo is a few years old. The memory of this trip always makes me smile. It was a special trip to one of my happy places.
“When there’s a smile in your heart, there’s no better time to start. Think of all the joy you’ll find, when you leave the world behind and bid your cares goodbye. You can fly.” — Peter Pan
Few things taste sweeter than dessert with family ❤

Canada’s largest lights festival is celebrating its 35th anniversary in Niagara Falls this year – and organizers say it’ll be their “brightest season yet.”
More than a million people from around the world come each year to see more than two million lights displayed throughout Niagara Falls during the city’s annual Winter Festival of Lights.

The kettle is on and the pot of coffee is fresh. Please come on in. I look forward to the company on this windy, grey day.
I haven’t sat with you for a coffee and chat for many weeks. I’m sorry. I just don’t know where the time is going. Which makes me even sadder.
Life is too damn short to not
take make the time to sit and have coffee with friends.
Today I’m sipping slowing and savoring my favourite ice latte while listening to my hubby play his online game. I am intensely grateful that I get to do this today. So much so I can almost physically feel it.
My son’s best friend lost his Dad last night to cancer. This wonderful man was kind and generous… full of laughter. My heart breaks for my son’s friend, for his siblings, his family and for his Mom. My heart is aching for my son. How do I help him help his friend?
This past week was thankfully full of family time. Last weekend’s Thanksgiving dinner, wandering the craft shows with my hubby and kids, out to a play at the Shaw Festival with my sister & brother-in-law. I also got to watch my son, his friend and their team play and win a football game. His friend was so happy … he got a sac and his jersey was signed by his Dad. It was a good day for football and a good memory.
Who did you spend your week with?
Thank you for stopping by.
Perhaps more than other years I am grateful for spending time with my family this weekend. Life goes by so fast and it is rarely ‘as planned’.
I am grateful for the food and dirty dishes. For the laughter and the quiet walks. I am grateful for the times I get to hug my family.
