a few (sunny) days in vancouver

well, its official~ we now live in vancouver! finn and i arrived late last week and have spent that last few days unpacking, exploring, unpacking, walking, unpacking and organizing. there is no shortage of things left to do in order to make this house a home, but we are definitely on the right track and starting to feel a bit more settled. i would be lying if i said its been an easy or natural transition. i miss my mom, family and friends- more than i actually thought i would. but as with all things in life, these feelings are mostly natural and, the worst of them, only temporary. we just need to give it some more time.

  2. It would be lying to say I haven't been waiting impatiently to see how the move turned out! It is so sad to think about not giving Finn all the experiences you had here in Calgary, not knowing which is your favourite go-to coffee shop, etc. I feel for you. But hopefully the excitement of discovering all the fun places and new experiences keeps the sad feelings at bay! Good luck, we're rooting for you! Who wouldn't want an ocean as a playground!

  4. thanks for all the kind words, ladies! jacquie- you are total right about the excitement of discovering new things in a new city... its been AMAZING! and though i naturally miss the comfort and familiarity of home, its been nice to challenge myself beyond our comfort zone- and find some total gems in the process. emily - you should definitely try to get out this way. its so beautiful. though ottawa is one of my favourite cities in the country. speaking of beautiful places to live. :)
