Sunday Walk in the Park

We were in the city on the long weekend for Thanksgiving and went for a walk around the lake. It was an absolutely beautiful day and I took lots of autumn-y photos with my phone.

These last two are from my mom's garden:

Listing 10 things I'm thankful for is an annual tradition on this blog. It's hard to narrow it down to merely ten but here are the main things I've been grateful for lately that I'm thinking about this weekend:

My New Job (teaching=growing hearts)

Our Beautiful Home

My Love

My Family (my nephew made this portrait of us for my birthday card.)





The Future


Happy Thanksgiving!

getting pumped up on the little bright things I bought

title from here
I just wanted to show some of the new things in my life lately.

When we went to Saskatoon for Beach House we went to Ten Thousand Villages, a store I love but the one closer to us closed down. We got this votive from there, it was made in India. I really like home decor from that store, we have quite a few things around the house from there. 

We got this movie and I love it. We re-watched it last week.

I actually went to Saskatoon again this past weekend to celebrate my friend's birthday. We went to a couple thrift stores and I got this amazing turquoise peacoat at Stasia for $18. 

Then I got these awesome boots at Plato's Closet for $20.


When I came home after the weekend away, a surprise present was waiting for me! 
Stephen got me Crush Songs by Karen O, an album I really like. I've been listening to it in my car.

I went to the book store last night and I got Lena Dunham's new book, Not That Kind of Girl, the Veronica Mars novel, and the first issue of Rat Queens. Girl power!

and I got new glasses. My prescription changed and I decided to get new frames as well. They are Alfred Sung brand and have a cool little wood grain thing on the side. I really like them. 

Have a great long weekend!
