Last week I introduced you to handsome Henry, my new apartment. What I failed to mention is that Henry is located in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, not Vancouver, British Columbia.
After living in the metropolis of Vancouver for nearly seven years I decided to move back to sunny Saskatchewan, my home province. This was a huge decision. A decision that took me over four months to commit to. I created a great life for myself in Vancouver and made some incredible friends. Vancouver is where I grew up; it is where I studied university, started my career, discovered the DIY/handmade culture that I love, and ultimately found what it is in life that makes me happy. But Saskatchewan was calling me home and I couldn’t resist its big skies and big opportunities. Now I’m living in Canada’s sunniest city and it is great. Bring on the sunshine!
My wonderful parents drove to Vancouver to help me move. Driving from Vancouver to Saskatoon is a pretty epic trip, especially in the middle of winter. We drove through the mountains, badlands, and prairies. Driving through the mountains was challenging. I haven’t seen that much snow since I was a child. The snow and the mountains were gorgeous. Canada amazes me; I always forget how breathtaking and diverse the landscape is.
Here are some photos we took during the big move.
I’m starting the next exciting chapter of my life in Saskatoon. I feel a bit like I’m starting over. I’m not from Saskatoon and don’t know many people here. I do think that this is the best move for me and that I will love it here. Saskatoon is a happening city!
