Dana's Pig Roast 9

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! Dana's Pig Roast 1Another 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!

Meanwhile in Ontario…

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. IMG_6074

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! IMG_6089 IMG_6133

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! IMG_6237

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. IMG_6250

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! IMG_6312

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.

Four Years Ago Today…

Four years ago today, I woke up in a hotel room in Ottawa…and started my trek north for the 2nd time to live in Pangnirtung. The time has flown by, it seems like yesterday I arrived!

Pangnirtung Blubber StationToday I am starting a new chapter in my life… it’s hard to type that but with endings come new beginnings.  I am  flying south back to Ontario.  It seems fitting that I will be flying south 4 years to the day that I flew back to live in Pang!

Pang Music Fest (5 of 21) Last night after the Pang Music Festival wrapped up for the evening…I went for one last drive around town with friends. It was just after 10pm…but the sun was setting behind the mountains (to pop up again a few hours later!)

Thanks Maki, Marton and Riina for driving me around….to visit everywhere one last time! Pang Music Fest (15 of 21)

I have been so blessed to be able to call Pangnirtung my home not once but twice…it will hold a special place in my heart forever.  Pang Music Fest (17 of 21)

 

The friendships and memories I have made here will last a lifetime! Until the next time we meet…
