A Weekend to be Thankful For

I am very thankful for:
  • My boys and I making it home safe and sound from our weekend in Calgary, Alberta
  • My BFF checking in on Banjo twice a day while we were away (thanks my friend!)
  • Being able to visit the Calgary Zoo (photos coming soon)
  • Spending the weekend in a brand new hotel room (a TV in the bathroom!!!!)
  • Being able to buy a new camera lens (Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 USM ~ very fun!)
  • Living in a small city (yes the shopping is pathetic but the traffic is minimal!)
  • All of you my blog followers, friends and visitors!


I hope everyone had a terrific weekend and I hope that all my Canadian friends that celebrated Thanksgiving this weekend will be enjoying their turkey leftovers this week! :)

Great list of things to be thankful for. Sounds like you had a great trip. I also live in a small town with almost non existent shopping but that minimal traffic more than makes up for it.
Love the photos

Hey! How come your weekend photos are so much better than mine???! Dang. ;)

They are lovely--really. You are so good at capturing color.

I'm glad you had a nice weekend. I'm sure Banjo is gonna give you the cold shoulder for a day or so, right?

Beautiful pictures!

Maybe those of us in the USA should celebrate with you, and have two Thanksgivings! And then you could have a second one in November too. We should be thankful every day, but having an extra "Turkey Day" and occasion to be with family and/or friends - that would be great.
