Summer in Calgary

Hello everyone!

I wanted to share some of the pictures I took when I was home in Calgary this summer.  I hope you enjoy them, especially my favorite, the beautiful blue Alberta skies.

Happy Canada Day!

From the Eastern coast of Canada, I hope all the Canadians following my blog have a great holiday! Take the time to have fun with your close friends and family during this long weekend.

I’ve always felt lucky to live in this country. It’s beautiful from coast to coast, from the oceans to the mountains and prairies. To live in a country that is both rich in natural beauty and contains such diverse people is truly a blessing.

That being said, Canadians have a lot of work ahead of us in the next couple of years. Forming the Canada of the future as a leader on the world stage and as a place where everyone feels accepted will mean putting in the time and effort. We shouldn’t forget our history as well, especially the indigenous peoples that have been here longer than most of us.

I hope you all have a great Canada Day, and celebrate this great place we call home. For the rest of my followers, I hope you have a great Sunday!

Day 21: Something Pretty

IMG_1705

This picture is something pretty to me because of the peace it conveys. It was taken early in the morning when everything seems quiet and peaceful, and I think it really shows in the photo. It’s nice to be able to have those moments of peace when our daily lives are complex and always busy.

This photo is also pretty to me since I love being near the water, especially near harbours with nice boats. It was one of those unique opportunities to catch a lot of the sailboats before they were out and about, which was awesome.

Plus, Nova Scotia is just pretty in general. This was taken in Lunenburg, while my family and I were waiting to take a trip on the Bluenose II. The small community feeling and connection to traditional industries and nature embodies some of the things I’ve really appreciated while living out here. It’s definitely a corner of Canada that is special to me, and I’ll always take a bit of it with me wherever I go.

What’s something pretty you’ve seen recently? Drop me a comment, and I love to see pictures too!
