Reflections of Thanksgiving...

some of my favourite Thanksgiving moments
on my family trip 
to my brothers place 
in the next province over...

~sleeping children

~a dog ready to ride

~Rogers Pass
elevation 1,330m or 4,360 ft 

~a magical place in the middle of no where

~driving through The Rockies... the wide open spaces of the prairies

~having face time with a bloggy soul sister

and her family!
what a treat that was 
thanks Kmarie for your amazing hospitality
there is nothing like being able to pass all the "standard" pleasantries
when meeting someone for the first time
that is the interesting thing about meeting blogger friends
you have already bared your soul
so there is no need for appetizers, 
you get right to the main course of conversation
so refreshing!

~road side graveyards

~my fellow weekend warrior paintballers!!!
oh yeah baby
mama loved the paintball!

~spending time with one of my favourite people in the world
and his lovely family

~my beautiful niece getting engaged
and being there to take their engagement photos for them

~good food and fellowship
~silly games and belly laughter
~quality wine at good prices

~and this guy
a great way to end it all...

Feeling blessed
Feeling full
Feeling like even when it rains
the Sun in shining bright

How are you feeling my Lovelies?

Love and Light
