I hope everyone had an amazing Pre-Halloween weekend and was able to dress up or go out for some haunted fun. Rye and I spent Saturday afternoon being tourists in our own city and then dressed up for some Halloween festivities. It is pretty safe to say that yesterday was a full day of recovery on my end and was a true rest and relaxation day.
Wishing everyone an amazingly haunted week filled with lots of sweet surprises!
I am currently enjoying Mountain Views from the Heart of Banff. I won’t lie, I have worked in worse places in my life, there is no doubt. I am tagging along with my mom for a quick trip to the mountains as she attends the Travel Alberta Conference at the Banff Springs, and I reap the rewards of getting to work while watching the sun rise over the mountains. It is days like today when I am reminded of how blessed I am, for where I live (and how close it is to these beautiful rocks), for the people I am surrounded by and for the life experiences I have had and will continue to have!
Hoping everyone is finding beauty in their Monday also even if it is something small!
Happy Tuesday and for all my fellow Canadians out there Happy (belated) Thanksgiving!
Thanksgiving is always one of my favourite holidays because it reminds me to be thankful and grateful for what I have in my life. I am, for the most part, always aware of the amazing things I have been blessed with in my life and do my best to give back to those who have less: whether that be monthly donations, becoming a rematch Santa or simply surprising my loved ones with something special. I am not sure if this year more than most, or the nostalgia of the time spent with family already drifting past, but I am feeling extremely grateful and almost renewed (maybe it was just the extra day off work). Regardless of what it is, I am thankful for so much in my life, both the blessings and the lessons because each one reminds me of what I have and teaches me something that I always need to learn (even if I do not see it at the time).
It’s amazing how quickly time flies. Sometimes I wish I could just stop certain moments even for a second longer and then there are moments I wish I could fast forward all together (don’t we all). This past week had both. As for the weekend, Saturday was spent volunteering for the greater portion of the day and then met with failed/given-up-on apple fritters. Sunday therefor meant a day of relaxation and preparation for my trip this week.
This past week was spent battling off a migraine that latched in for quite awhile, so I was glad to finally be out of the house this weekend. It seems that fall is popping up more and more, making me sad and missing summer already. I will just have to look forward to the snow frosted days soon enough and the first signs of spring months from now. In the meantime I have been keeping busy and partaking in some fall activities, as it is inevitable with it being Ryan’s favourite season.
