HaPpY Birthday to you…
Happy birthday to YOU…
HAPPY BIRTHDAY dear Dana…
HaPpY BiRtHdAy to YOU!!
Last month my brother surprised Dana with a 40th Birthday PIG ROAST a MONTH before her actual birthday! Friends of theirs opened up their backyard for the party!
The pig was delicious…Samuel decided that the pig’s ear wasn’t so fantastic because there’s not a lot of meat in the ear! Another amazing reason I love being in the south is to be close to family events like this when they happen. It was so fun to be able to join in on the fun and party in person, rather than catching up over the phone!
Hope you had a fantastic ‘surprise’…and that your day today was extra special.
Welcome to the next decade…don’t worry I know you will be able to rock it!
It’s been a crazy-filled three months! I can’t believe it’s October 18th already. So what’s been happening?
My move went so smoothly… my boxes from Nunavut arrived on Tuesday morning (and I dropped them off the Thursday before in Pang!). In all the things that I moved, I only broke one coffee mug–from the Department of Education. Sad but true.
I had a lot of switching province stuff to get under control…drivers license, health card and new plates for Milo. During this process it was so crazy, but I finally got it all done.
The first 4 weeks were busy catching up with family and friends…trying to find an apartment, then settling in and going on a crazy shopping spree to repurchase things I sold when I left Nunavut. It was so awesome to be able to spend time with good friends…that have become family.
I got to spend 4 awesome days at my family’s cottages…catching up with cousins that were there from the states and BC as well as from various spots in Ontario!
Then it was back to reality of getting settled before I started my new job…a trip to IKEA was a necessary evil! I had fun putting together my new couch, chair and book shelf!
I also went a crazy shopping spree for new clothes with my mum and sis-in-law…so much fun to invest in a fun new wardrobe! I surprised myself and added a bunch of dresses to my wardrobe.
My job has been amazing. Every day I am happy, and it is confirmed that I made the right choice to move south when I did..and I am loving what I’m doing. Yes, it’s been crazy hectic at times, but I LOVE it!
I’m slowly adjusting back to life in the south…with cars, cell phones and wifi that’s-oh-so-fast. LIfe lately has kept me really busy…but I’ve missed dropping by this place and sharing photos and random stories, until the next time.
