Hello all, and happy Monday to you! I hope you all had lovely weekends– mine was particularly nice, full of brunch dates, cocktails, gelato meetups, morning runs and sunshine. I’ll have a ‘Grams of my Life up later this week to share it all with you, but I’m bumping that to Wednesday for a very good reason…
Today is Canada’s birthday! As an expat, even one who adores her adopted city, there’s not a day goes by that I don’t think about my homeland. Not only the people I love there, but the weather, the lifestyle, and the beautiful landscape. Every year when July 1st rolls around I think about how I’d spend it were I back at home. Perhaps I’d go to a friend’s cottage, or a barbecue in someone’s backyard, or a busy rooftop bar in the city. Good food, drinks and fireworks are a given, of course.
But I’m never that sad to be missing out, because London does pretty well for itself on Canada Day. Every year there’s a huge celebration in Trafalger Square, and tonight I’ll be meeting my sister, with a whole bunch of Canadian (and some non-Canadian) friends there for music, drinks and dinner. But before I do that, let’s all enjoy some Canadian eye candy, shall we? I’ve rounded up 13 photos, one for each Canadian province and territory, for a visual “birthday feast”.
