< word of the day: gratitude – the state of being grateful; thankfulness >
This post is especially special to me because it is Canada’s 150th birthday. Growing up, I did not understand what it meant to have immigrant parents. Through the eyes of an innocent child, I only saw the best in everything. Over time, I was finally old enough to understand what it meant for my parents to come here and their struggles in a country foreign to them. I am so fortunate to be raised here, where my worries are minuscule compared to what is occurring around the world.
I am grateful to be born in this beautiful country that has taught me to be strong, brave and always proud. Whether you are born here or have allowed Canada to be your new home, I hope we can all celebrate this wonderful country for it’s birthday.
I created a casual Canadian-inspired dinner party to be shared with friends and family. As always, you can add your own twists to everything and remove things you don’t like. I tried to incorporate things that make Canada unique and so great.
Thanks for reading and happy planning.
