May 31, 2017


Hey Canada, you’re having one of those really cool milestone birthdays! You’re celebrating 150 years of being your own independent country and being such a lovely home for such a diverse group of people.

You do sometimes throw tantrums in winter and definitely test our patriotism, but the ones who stick around know the how lucky we are to call ourselves Canadians.

Thank you Canada for giving us the privilege to start healthy families, businesses, and products that are as diverse as you! Or are they...
