Happy Birthday Canada! 10 Reasons Why I Love You

Canada is celebrating it’s 150th birthday this year and the Canadian pride in me is bubbling over, so I had to share what I love most about my mother country: 1.

The church is located in the cute little countryside of Bloomingdale, Ontario. I live in the city next to it, which has a surrounding population of approximately 500,000 so I imagine that most people who
