It takes a long time to grow young.

So yesterday was my birthday! The whole weekend was wonderful surprise after wonderful surprise. Saturday when I arrived home, I was ambushed by a group of my friends throwing me a surprise party! Then Sunday on the pretence of going to a downtown flea market I was instead brought to sassafraz an AMAZING downtown restaurant, where I was treated to lunch and got what I thought was my present, a great scrapbook of memories of the four of us. Then monday I was surprised with a third gift of brand new Hunter boots! My friends are the cats pyjamas and I would like to thank them dearly for all their love and kindness!

Love your city.

I love my city! It's such a great place, everyone who doesn't live here likes to make fun of it and call it scary and dangerous but really, at least we don't have men driving their lawn tractor's along Younge St! When I saw this city view downtown I liked how honest it was, growing from the smaller stone building into the shinny glass buildings. It's not breath-taking but it make you look. Then to top it off while I was out for a run (yes I do that now) i saw this storage unit graffitied from top to bottom, I just couldn't get over how interesting this city is, just touches that people use to make it their own. It's just a constant reminder that this city is our home.

A few of my favourite things.

There is just something about Thanksgiving that makes everyone so happy and optimistic! I just can't help but smile when I see all the beautiful colours and smell all the tantalizingly delicious smells of the holiday. I spent mine at my cottage and as always had the time of my life! Because the fall just makes me so happy I thought I would make a list of things that make me happy just because having something like that always makes me feel really good.

1. Crisp fall days
2. Chocolate milk
3. My cat
4. Audrey Hepburn in Funny Face
5. Taking pretty pictures
6. a good cup of tea
7. My friends
8. Wool sweaters
9. Chivarly
10.Anything written by Cabriel Garcia Marquez

Here are some pictures I took from this weekend, I was more focused on enjoying the weather and my company but here they are!
