Our little RoyRoy

          Three years ago, as a family, we chose to depart from our busy life in the city to discover a quieter, more rural life. We looked for a few months and soon found what we were searching for; a small village approximately 25 min. from the city. It was close enough to our business that the commute was enjoyable, the housing costs were ideal and the population was filled with young families like our own.

We found an incredible farmhouse from the 1920’s with a double lot for a yard (with two boys at the time, I knew we would love having space to run outside), and a ton of potential to be a dream home inside!  We have loved the last three years here ( although it didn’t come without trial), and have grown to love the scenic drive from here to the city.   I have witnessed majestic sunsets, encountered snowy owls and watched the lands change with the seasons.   There is so much going on outside the city that I had only heard about until we took the chance to see it for ourselves.

Happy Birthday to Me

              Its dark in here, only my thoughts and my imagination surround me. I think and wonder, smile and cry, but no one can see me. They sense I am with them and know that I will one day join their world. I know when that day will come and today is that day. I sit and wait for the itch, the urge, the push I need to look out and see the world I have read and observed over the last few years of my hidden life. Today I am born into the world of writing and although the first few moments will be filled with fear and anxiety, it will soon be my new normal.  Here I go..off to meet the rest of you.
