Can you believe this weekend marks one year from our “so close, but not quite” move back to the Ottawa valley? Yup… it was this weekend last year that Peter and I decided (after a long two week trial) that my new gig in Ottawa wasn’t going to cut it alone in the ‘blissfully happy and content couple; in a freezing cold city, planning a wedding on one salary, while the whole city laments over a ridiculous and lengthy city bus strike, and the rest of the world continues it’s downward spiral in the biggest economic crisis in our lifetime’ department. So we did what any sane and terrified couple would have done and stayed put in a city that we know, have a network, and wasn’t experiencing a deep winter freeze with no end in sight, amidst very angry citizens with no way of getting around. D-R-A-M-A-R-A-M-A
So that’s what was swirling around in my head LAST Valentine’s Day and family weekend… What’s up for this year you ask??
Well I am happy to tell you that the second half of February this year, will be filled with far less drama than last. Relatively speaking of course. :) This baby sometimes cranks up my crazy without warning afterall.
Things can change a lot in a year.
So, we’re heading out of town tomorrow and our only plans are to chill!! Long quiet naps in the valley, dinner and get togethers with many loved ones, some time to play with my niece and nephew and CAKE. Ha. It’s little Clementine’s first birthday this weekend and we’re going to a party!
Sending love out to all this long weekend. <3 <3 <3
