This year, I had the wonderful fortune of celebrating Canadian Thanksgiving in Paris. Although the French don’t typically celebrate Thanksgiving, my dear Canadian/Parisian friends in Paris decided to keep the tradition alive and placed a special order for a turkey — which as you can see from the picture above, they prepared to perfection.
Canadian Thanksgiving actually takes place almost a month earlier than in the U.S. — I believe it has to do with harvest time, and in Canada, crops were presumably harvested a tad earlier in the year.
Regardless, though, of whether I celebrate in October or November, the fact still remains that I have a lot to be thankful for. And although I feel it’s important to feel gratitude every day I’m on this earth, I don’t mind giving a little extra thanks this holiday season.
And so, I’m thankful for being alive, healthy, happy and eternally hopeful about life. I’m thankful for being able to live out my wildest dreams in Paris. I’m thankful for the many miracles in my life that are never-ending and keep me a believer. I’m thankful for my angels: my mother, family and dear sweet friends, who love me and support me in all of my endeavors.
And finally, I’m thankful for all of you, who continue to share in my adventures, and cheer me on with each new path I take.
Happy Thanksgiving to you all!
