Big News!

Before I finish blogging our Tulum, Mexico trip, I wanted to stop in for a quickie announcement. Something I never thought I would ever say..... we are moving to Winnipeg!


Life throws you curve balls, and this certainly is one. We have been looking at moving out of our place and looking for a house, and now, well, we certainly are!

If you aren't familiar with Winnipeg, it's a city smack dab in the centre of the continent (has even been dubbed as such) in the province of Manitoba. It sits on top of the American border straddling North Dakota and Minnesota.

I've never been there, but from what I've heard, the winters are long and incredible cold, the summers short and incredibly hot, and they have jumbo sized mosquitos.

On the bright side, I've heard that Manitobans are the friendliest of people, there are loads of lakes to enjoy in the summer, and it's truly going to be an adventure for the hubby, two wieners and me.

Hubby got a promotion at work which involved relocating, and I was all aboard. It will be sad to leave family and friends and the neighbourhood we love so very much, but this is an opportunity of a lifetime for him, and there was no turning it down.

What will I be doing, you ask? I'm really not sure. One thing is certain; I will blog about all of our adventures along the way. It's going to be a very busy next two months!

    1. I enjoy change as well! I've never lived more than 45 minutes outside of where I grew up, so this will certainly be an experience. I think everyone should have to live outside of their comfort zone at least once, right?

    1. Can you believe that I don't own a snow jacket or winter boots? Thankfully I'll have some time to source out my winter gear!

    2. Be warned, we have more than our fair share of mosquitos. But there are a lot of festivals. The Forks (downtown) is wonderful. If you're into farmers market, there's a great one at the south end of the city. What else would you care to know...
