O Canada

by torontogirlwest on July 1, 2012

I wasn’t born in Canada.

Instead, I entered this world in a small war-torn Central American country. My family left our home country in 1988 and since then has been blessed enough to make a home in this wonderful country.

I love Canada . . . it’s people, it’s beauty, it’s values, and dare I say, it’s hopes and aspirations.

So in honour of Canada Day and this great place I call home, I’ve chosen to share with you some of my favourite pictures of my favourite spots in the true north strong and free.

Happy Canada Day Everyone!!!

Question: Do you have any plans for today? We’re thinking of watching the game (Long Live Spain!!!!), checking out to the local festivities, and hitting up a food truck festival!

I guess it’s a good thing Germany lost, we’re actually cheering for the same team today! A friend’s band is playing from 1-3 so I’m going to go cheer them on, take a spin around the Inner Harbour to check out the festivities, and then I’m coming home and laying low. (I know I’m getting old because I’m still recovering from a Friday night party!)

I hope you and yours have a fantastic Canada Day!

To be honest, I don’t know that I’ll ever be up for Canada Day in the Inner Harbour ever again. That’s one seriously out of control party!!!
