Giving thanks… Take 2

Although we don’t get the day off or make a big dinner, we always take time on our second Thanksgiving of the year (In Canada, Thanksgiving is in mid-October) to call family and friends and show gratitude for our many blessings.

Today, I’m thankful :

  • For slow mornings before school, filled with creativity, bathed in sunlight.

  • For giggles, silliness and quiet times… all of them filled with absolute and unconditional love.

  • For muted beauty, forcing me to look deeper into myself and others.

  • For a clear path ahead, filling me with confidence and leaving me free of doubt.

Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends and family.

Be safe in your travels and be grateful for all you have. Love each other and yourselves. xox 

About Yanic A.

Hello to all of you and thank you for stopping by! My name is Yanic. I'm a wife to a wonderful husband, a mother of 2 beautifully complex and unique children and a lover of all things inspiring. Having started a personal journey of self discovery when I found out I was pregnant with my daughter 4 years ago, I've since embraced a daily life of simpler pleasures and gratitude. As we get to know each other, you will know me as a quilter, a gardener, a Tao cultivator, a vegetarian foodie, a true believer in a healthy family life as being the secret to my happiness and hopefully as time goes on, a friend... I will try to share with you my days as they unfold, speaking of my happy successes without censoring my challenges, trying to make this blog a true portrait of the ever-changing path that I have chosen for myself. I'm hoping to find in these pages others to share with and learn from, bringing to light the absolute connection in all things and people, showing this world as being a true community.

      They are my favorite thing about being at home full time now. My kids get up so early, but I rarely mind. Even with Little Miss going to school now, it gives us hours to just be together in the morning. It is truly a gift.

      I hope your holiday was a wonderful Karen.


  7. So much sibling love 🙂 These are some of my favorite moments at our house, and to see it in other families as well! Happy (late) American Thanksgiving.
