Hello Salt Spring!

I can’t believe we’ve been here for 3 weeks already! We’ve been living in a beautiful little cottage situated on a 40 acre property where our view consists of lush green farm land and the breathtakingly beautiful Mount Maxwell. We’ve been spending lots of quality time together and have been soaking up all the sweet moments.

As lovely as it all sounds - and it is lovely… its been tough too!

Our new life is a huge contrast to what we had before and Moira wishes every day that we could go back. She misses her friends, our amazing neighbours, all the parks, the abundance of extracurricular activities, stability, her own room etc. All this of course makes me question our decision even though I know in my heart that we did the right thing. I look forward to the day when I can see my daughter happy again! Elora on the other hand is unscathed and still her usual happy self. We’ve also had to adapt to not having a dishwasher, no garbage removal, no data, significantly less square footage and the uncertainty of knowing what our future has in store. First world problems I know! I also miss my amazing friends, my work and stability. True friends will always be there and there are always new friends to be made. Despite these small, insignificant discomforts - we are immensely grateful to be on this journey - wherever it may take us.

All my love!

Minette
