canada is a place of infinite promise.

Holidays always make me smile. Not just because it means I get the day off work. (Though that is certainly an added bonus.) But because there is something in the air. Everyone is happy, excited, and feeling good about life. That is exactly how I am feeling at the moment. I am very much looking forward to celebrating Canada Day tomorrow. There is something so wonderful about a long weekend, a special holiday, and people you love. 

This year? My husband and I will be taking a short drive to a nearby town. Then there will be cotton candy, fair rides, and of course, fireworks. The latter is especially important. It just wouldn't be Canada Day without them. We have gone to this town for Canada Day a couple of times before...but haven't gone in a few years. Honestly? I have missed it. Sure the event tends to be crowded and chaotic - but it's also a lot of fun. Especially when the sun sets and everyone crowds along the beach front to watch the firework show. It is magical. And I cannot wait to experience that magic all over again. 

I want to wish all of my Canadian readers a very Happy Canada Day. Be sure to celebrate with people you love. (And don't forget to check out the fireworks!) For everyone else....have a wonderful day and an even better weekend.

Happy Canada Day! How will you be celebrating?
