Selling, Moving and Starting Again

Moving from one province to another is a long and tiring process.  Starting from this, in 2013, the floods in Alberta, to starting all over in British Columbia in 2015.  I say starting over, but even though this particular picture looks bad, our family was cover by insurance and we only lost “stuff”.  This is not about the floods but rather about starting over.

From that day in 2013 to today in 2015 we have sorted; cleaned; renovated; staged, sold, bought, packed and moved to the beautiful Creston Valley in British Columbia.

For me, this was a much longer journey.  I had been yearning to return to BC for 25 years and this year was the year!  And what an amazing place.  Mountains on the east and west; rich farm valley; luscious orchards surround us.  In the couple of months here I have picked cherries right off the trees, canned my own peaches, plums and apricots, attended the local farmers market, found an art group and so much more.  I think I am going to love living here.front

Our new home is appx. 50 years old so a few renovations to take place.  I will be posting some of those as we travel along.  Already there have been changes and can’t wait to see the final product.  One of the first, and you may laugh, was dealing with water in the
basement.  Good thing we have experience!

      Thank you Linda. It is always a difficult transition, one we have done way too many times. This was a great move for us, I hope your changes are just what you need as well.
