Happy Canada Day!!!

Happy Canada Day everyone! Canada is 146 years old and today we will celebrate the birth of this beautiful and strong nation. I love being  a born and raised Canadian and here in Toronto there will be many celebrations going on around town including a lot of fireworks. 

In Canada we are known for many things like: the fact that we say "eh" a lot, which is sometimes true as I have to admit that when I travel abroad I catch myself saying it. We are also known for our vast and beautiful countryside, cities and landscape, the birth of hockey and delicious maple syrup. We are a bilingual country of French and English, and although I am not fluent in French I did study French in school and can get by fairly well; but there is so much more to us than that. Toronto is one of the most multicultural cities in the world and a great place to  live. The abundance of diverse and rich culture is truly beautiful. 

What better way to start off the morning than with some fluffy fruit pancakes topped with Canadian maple syrup!!

I will leave you with a few photos of my home, enjoy!!!
