Happy Thanksgiving, Canadian-Style!

This past weekend, Canadians celebrated Thanksgiving in true delicious form with plenty of turkey, stuffing and pumpkin pie. My family visited from Toronto and BC and our house was packed with laughs, love and food.

In our down time while our friends and family recovered from their tryptophan-induced comas, my beautiful sister Erika and I snuck out and snapped a few pics under the autumn sun.

While I don’t love fall (at all), I do love the gorgeous colours, autumnal light which is more golden and flattering than summer sun, and cozy fall fashions.

Here are some pics of Erika and I highlighting our favourite Thanksgiving looks in my beautiful neighbourhood, and I count ourselves very lucky to have not been chased around the pond at the end of my street by the resident wild turkeys!  LOL!

    Awww, happy Thanksgiving love! You and your sister are incredibly gorgeous, now I only wonder what your parents look like because of genetics are on fire right now.

    And kudos to you guys for being able to actually go outside and take pictures instead of rolling around the floor in a coma like everyone else, haha!
    Amethyst is one of my favorite stones – and not just because purple is my favorite color ?
    Love and hugs baby girl

      Hey babe! I gotta come clean…we snuck out in between courses. Lol! We were a mess by the bed of the night…a fat, greasy, turkey-smelling mess. Thanks for the kind comments…our parents are lookers and my dad was a real
      ladykiller back in the day – lol! oxoxoxox

    WHO doesn’t love Fall? How can you say that Dominique! 😮
    But I love how you’re channeling the ’70s vibe here. 😀 And your sister – wowsers, you 2 both lucked out in the genes department! Please tell Erika that I love her hair – so shiny!
    Glad to hear you had a great Thanksgiving!
