Dear Canada,

I have a major crush on you :)
I have only seen a little bit of you: Vancouver, British Columbia, Saint John, Saint Martins, and other parts of New Brunswick, Halifax, and all over Nova Scotia and I love you a lot.
Three words that I would use to describe you:
1. happy
2. beautiful
3. peaceful
Here are some of my favorite pictures from my trips to Canada:

I love the way you do things. 
 You run so smoothly and peacefully.
I love all of your parks
I love how spell colour and favourite
I love your sugar maple candies
I love your flowers
I love putting eh? at the end of a question
I love your smiles
I love how your money is called loonies and toonies :)  I smiled every time I heard that.
I love how no one in Vancouver had heard of crab ragoon
I ESPECIALLY love all of my favorite Canadian blog friends <3
I just really admire you Canada :)


  1. Awww Thanks! We like Loonies and Toonies too! Next time you have to visit the Okanagan...The beaches of Penticton are beautiful.

    I also have a major crush on Canada :) and next year I will be participating again in the Canadian Book Challenge, are you doing it as well?

    But there's two things I don't like about that country one bit... 1/ how they treat First Nations people (their stories are heartbreaking, especially when one meets and hears them face to face) and 2/ the apalling way they deal with seals :(

    No country is perfect, I guess.

    Gorgeous pictures, by the way.

  4. Nice post Janel! I am proud to be Canadian, it really is a beautiful place, and a great place to live.

    I have a great admiration for all First Nations people, (being part Metis myself). I thought they were represented well at this past olympic games.

    If you ever travel through Manitoba, let me know!! :)

    Ps: what is crab ragoon?

  5. I like their national anthem: "O Canada!"

  6. Canada loves you right back!! :)
    Winnipeg :)

  7. Now I want to go explore there :)

  8. big hug from montréal...

    you should visit the gaspésie region in Québec it's so beautiful!


  9. lol!! Crab ragoon is something that we always eat with our chinese food :) It's everywhere in the US :)
    It's filed with cream cheese and Im assuming a little bit of crab. Sooooo good!!

  10. haha I was going to ask what Crab Ragoon was as well!

    XOXO from Alberta!
    I remember when we first got Toonies here, I was pretty pumped about it!!
