By now it should come as no surprise that I am loving the energy surrounding 2017 and all things #Canada150. We have some exciting partnerships that we will be announcing soon to help celebrate with Canadians from coast-to-coast. When I stop to think about Canadiana and the celebrations, there is of course several brands that come to mind. Recently I had the pleasure of attending a special announcement from Hudson’s Bay where they announced the launch of the commemorative Hudson’s Bay Grand Portage items that will help to connect Trans Canada Trail’s Great Trail in celebration of Canada’s 150th Birthday through its Grand Portage fundraising program. “The Great Trail, which is the longest recreational trail in the world, will finally connect Canadians from coast-to-coast-to-coast, leaving a great Canadian legacy to be enjoyed for generations to come.”
Among some of the most respected Canadians, I was able to check out these beautiful items for myself and can assure you that they hold a special place in my heart. Not only will they help to celebrate an incredible year in the history of our country, but it is a small representation of helping to connect Canadians both figuratively and literally. I love that!
This morning I had the pleasure of joining some amazing Canadians as Hudson’s Bay announced their #HBGrandPortage fundraising program in support of @tctrail. Thank you for inviting me to join in on the excitement @hudsonsbay ? This photo embodies probably one of the most Canadian moments of the year.

Well with so many to pick from (click here to see the entire selection) I have my eye on the Printed Crew Neck Sweatshirt for both Catherine and I , as well as several of the enamel mugs for when we are travelling across the country this year.
