Saskatchewan My Home

Saskatchewan My Home.

As a child I despised autumn. I think I was resentful towards fall because it meant the ending of summer and the beginning of the long, cold, harsh winter. I did not begin to see the beauty of this time of the year until recently, there is no more colors out during any part of the year than right now. Greens, reds, yellows and various shades of orange light up the country, showering us in rainbows of leaves on the ground. It truly is a sight to see. I was thinking recently how sad it is that many people across the world don’t get to experience such a sight. For many, things may always bright green or always brown and lifeless. Here in Canada we get to experience the rebirth of spring, the growth of summer, the loss of autumn and the sparkling dormancy of winter.  Sometimes I take for granted how lucky I am to live in such a beautiful, calm place and recently I’ve been trying to take the time to appreciate this wonderful country, province and city I call home. I hope you all take the time to do the same! Here are a few pictures I have taken in the past two weeks of the changing of the seasons. (all photos were taken with an iPhone and contain no filters, enjoy!)

Saw this poster while I was waiting in the drive thru getting coffee before work. Even though I wasn’t having a particularly bad day this random sign made my day that much better. It’s true Someone does Love You  and I think sometimes we forget this. Thank You to whoever felt so moved to put this up, I’m sure it brightened many peoples day!

My parents live on a plot of land that has been in our family history for 106 years. For me there is nothing more beautiful than this place. It is not just the scenic view that strikes me but the memories and sense of family that is engraved into the land. Nothing makes me more happy than sitting on the deck, drink in hand, surrounded by my family and animals, having good conversation. It’s the small things in life that bring true happiness! Here are a few pics of the area, hope you enjoy!

Lately we have been having very strange weather here in Saskatchewan (we always have weird weather around here but this year has been especially odd). We had temps of up to +19 (celsius) in March and then in April we got over a foot of snow in a few hours and the next day it was +2! Very weird but makes for some great pictures! (global warming is happening people!)
