I miss Canada!

It's that time of year again.  May.  Mid May to be exact.

The two weeks prior to my report card deadline.
The time of the year when it seems like it always starts raining as soon as I walk outside.
And, of course - moving season.

Can you believe that I have not lived in the same place for more than 2 years since I was 18??  That was almost 10 years ago!  And it always seems like May...dreadful the month for moving.

Moving, and May, make me homesick.  Likely because it is SO close to the time when I get to go back to Canada.  I'll be heading home on July 5 this year, just in time for Kerri and Jos' wedding!  But not in enough time for a lot of other things...

I know, all you Canadian friends and family are screaming at the top of your lungs, "you IDIOT!  Just come home already and stop all these travelling shenanigans!  Who do you think you are?"

People, I know.  Trust me, I know.  Sometimes I can be selfish, forgetful, unreliable, and always, always absent.  Maybe, for some of you, It's not even sometimes.  Maybe it's all of the time.

All I can say is that hopefully the time I am sacrificing now will allow me to have more time to spend with all of you in the future.  And I'm sorry that for some of you, that's not enough.

But don't worry.  Canada will always be my home.  Always and forever.  And right now, there are so many things I am missing....

The Jays: the enjoyment of going to a baseball game with a group of friends is truly unique.  And the baseball is pretty good too.  Hopefully Bautista can pull the team together this year!

This photo has a 50% pregnancy rate now!  Looks like wearing a jays shirt to the game is important!

PaneFresco:  The best bakery I have ever been to.  Whatever their soup of the day is, try it!  And their pizza...and bring some bread home for later because you'll love it...

Lilacs: Is there any better flower on earth?  I think not.

Lululemon: You are always on my to-do list.  I will tear through this shop like it's a boxing day, store-is-closing-tomorrow type of sale.

Canada Day: I will be too late this year!  Someone please have a Keiths, a stack of ribs, a shot of maple syrup and a sparkler for me!

Not to mention this....

And this...

And this...

Happy May 2-4 everyone!  Hope you take the time to enjoy something truly Canadian!  What did I do on my last May 2-4 in Canada?  Oh, a little bit of this...
