Inspiration for Love, Canada!
The inspiration for my Love Canada block, is really simple, it's just that I do Love Canada. We have so much to love, about this wonderful country of ours. We have beautiful cities, rural areas, mountains and so much water. Canada has four wonderful seasons to enjoy. Every year, winter ends and spring brings to us a re-birth which is a true blessing that I love!
