As you guys know we are big book nerds around here, I have loved reading since I was little and I’ve always been keen to pass that love of books to my kids. Canada has given us so many amazing authors so I was so excited to partner with INDIGO on this post the share their current Read the North campaign with all of you for Canada’s 150th birthday! This year for Canada’s birthday INDIGO is celebrating Canada with their first-ever coffee table book #TheWorldNeedsMoreCanada – full of beautiful pictures and stories from over 100 Canadians. INDIGO is a Canadian company and they support their story tellers around the country that get our imaginations running wild or that get us cooking recipes in the kitchen with local seafood and supporting our local farmers. I am especially loving my new coffee table book titled “The World Needs More Canada” because let’s be real here – the world does! I am such a proud Canadian, I love our country and I am always so thankful to live here – more people need to come here and explore this beautiful place, heck I need to explore more of it – we are yet to hit the eastern shores! But what the world also needs to experience more of, is our Canadian authors!

Ella and I sat outside a couple of weeks ago and went through some of our favourite books by Canadian authors – I am loving 3 cookbooks:

True North – Canadian Cooking from Coast to Coast by Derek Dammann and Chris Johns

Chuck’s Day Off by Chuck Hughes

Eat Better, Live Better, Feel Better by Julie Cove

&

It All Begins With Food by Leah Garrard-Cole a fellow mama striving to feed her children a healthy balanced diet!

and I have also been enjoying reading the novel Life of Pie by Yann Martel – a spanish born Canadian. This is one of our favourite movies and I had no idea the author was Canadian until I picked it up to read it!

As you know from my past collaborations with INDIGO, we are also big fans of their House & Home products – we picked up this Canadian inspired picnic blanket and have used it SO much so far this summer, it can be wrapped up so nice and conveniently and can be thrown in the wash. I love that it is a nice buffalo plaid print – a perfect Canadian Muskoka print and it is the best for the beach or a picnic and of course it is comfy too for laying on to read your favourite books on in nature! We also picked up the coffee mug in my hand “Life is Better in Canada” because I have a total mug obsession (it’s on sale here) and the cutest wood platter that says “Happy Camper” – it’s great for putting together snacks on for the kids to share and so easy to clean! I also couldn’t leave the store without the funniest tea towel that says “150 years on the EH team!” – must have for this Canadian gal ha ha, you can find it {here}! PS You can shop all of these items below by simply clicking on them.

This blog post was made in collaboration with INDIGO, all opinions are my own and we are so proud to be working with a brand we love for the entire family! The lovely Bettina Bogar captured these images for us. Search the hashtag #ReadtheNorth on social media to find what others around us are reading in celebration of Canada’s 150th birthday and our Canadian authors and let me know your favourite books so I can discover them too if you have a Canadian author to share!
