At the end of last year's recap I said I hoped that 2021 would bring more family visits and trips outside of our province.  In 2022, I'm hoping we get to leave the country!


  1. What a wonderful recap of your year!

  2. This is such a great recap of your year and YAY for fall with a trip to Nova Scotia and to see the Blue Jays!
