When you have a large family spread out in different provinces, celebrating Thanksgiving, or any holiday for that matter, doesn’t happen on the date specified on a calendar. It is whenever you are together.
We took a little trip to Montreal a few weekends ago to check out my sister-in-laws’ new home (I now have a serious case of kitchen envy!) and hang out with some cutie pies. I was in the middle of a Visual Storytelling course and inspired to document the visit in an organic way, without directing the kids on what to do or where to be.
These images tell the real story of our time with some of the people we are thankful to have in our lives. Snuggling on the couch, eating breakfast, my country boys riding bikes and scooters (it’s a dead end street – such a change from our dirt trails!), a treat of hot chocolate spilled on the front of a polka dot dress, and watching my brother-in-law play soccer (and then the kids all running on the field after to play too!).
This Thanksgiving weekend I’m humbled and thankful to the many friends and supporters of my work. I wish you and your loved ones a wonderful Thanksgiving.
