October’s Gifts


Simple everyday joys. These are the gifts that make up our lives. I’m adding them to the blessing list this week.

1.  Family traditions.


First the feast, then the walk,

(note to self – let’s get that in earlier next year. It was almost dark by the time we made it back to the cars!)


and then back home for Thanksgiving pie.

We missed you so much Andrew, Hyekoo and Kinsey! ❤

2. Gathering chestnuts on a windy autumn day.


“I’m on a mission Nanny!”

“What mission Josie?”

“Collecting nuts for our squirrel!” 🙂

3.  An autumn trail adventure with the wacky friends.


a picnic feast,


and a hike,


all in a golden autumn setting



A day for the memory book!

4. The last of the tomatoes ripening on the windowsill.


5. Photography in autumn on PEI. I l.o.v.e. taking pictures this time of year!


the colours


the light


The sun is shining today and I’m heading to the center of the Island with my camera. Rolling hills, long winding red dirt roads and glorious autumn vistas are all waiting for me! Like our famous little red-head said “I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers!”

Thanks for visiting!

with love,

  1. Family traditions are the best. And when you take time to capture them (like you do) in photos, they can be relived. Double the blessing. ANd you can shre them with absent family members.

    Love the mission your little Josie was on. Very precious.

    Autumn certainly does favour your spot of the world. I plan on visiting in the Fall and order to totally enjoy all PEI has to offer. I might even have some time left over to research my family roots. LOL.

    Have a great week.


  2. how beautiful as always! love the family hike pic and what a perfect spot for an autumn picnic with a friend! I love that Anne quote as well and have used it on facebook at times. 😀

    Happy belated Thanksgiving to you northern friends!!

    I’m looking forward to the day I can look up some of these enchanted Haunts of yours. So Beautiful! Maybe fall is the best season to visit PEI.


    • well Bev, I think it would be a toss up between summer and fall. If you’re a beach lover then definitely come in the summer. If you love hiking and the autumn colours then pick October. This year has been particularly lovely – lots of sunny days and warmer than usual temps. Why bother choosing?? Come in the summer AND the fall 🙂
