Thank You and Gratitude

Canadian Thanksgiving just happened. It's a day of thanks coupled with eating too much and hanging out with family and friends---and, for me, saying goodbye to summer---for now. She'll be back eventually. But for now I'm preparing for the cooler temperatures. What a year! We still have a few months left. The general populace doesn't... Continue Reading →

Shit Cupcakes
