So I have been waiting for the prefect time to share this with you all… and the perfectionist in me is always over analyzing things and making things just so until I consider sharing them with the world. Sometimes holding onto things until its too late, irrelevant or the moment has passed entirely. I guess I want to see how it all plays out and ensure that everything goes to plan and it is perfectly placed in the perfect spot, but life is often not like that. Its messy, unpredictable and a whirlwind of emotions and events. I find myself so focused on the details of a project and making sure the project goes off perfectly that I forget to look at the big picture and simply enjoy the ride.
So before I move on, I’m going to clear the air and say No.. I am not pregnant! LOL! That is always the first thing that pops in peoples mind when I say I have Big News to share!
You guys already know a small part however as I have been sharing more personal posts lately than usual. Something I think I am going to continue and increase doing as I find this an incredible way to journal and document my thoughts and reflect on fleeting moments. So be warned from here on out things may come out less polished and more personable than usual. Because lets be honest, I want to be a real person behind those pretty pictures and have a meaningful connection with others. Because without that what’s the point.
So you probably thinking…. enough talking already Alina. Get to the point!
So there is no easy way to say this.
We are MOVING to NOVA SCOTIA!
Yikess! It looks, sounds and IS sooo real when I type this out.
But it’s time to leap into the next part of this journey (the moving part)
Its a long story, a BIG story. Something I hope to break down and share with you guys when I can through instagram most likely because lets be honest. That little app is pretty amazing in its ability to connect people all over the world and show a peak into their everyday life.
So you might be wondering first off what this means for my me and my business? Well it is a “process” and I am not going to lie and say its easy because it’s not. But here I find myself very very lucky compared to most. I am able to do this move into two steps to gently transition our lives over to the East Coast.
Sell our house
Buy our New House
Move our entire life to the EAST COAST.
Spend Christmas with the family.
Settle into our new home, spend the winter exploring our new area and make our house a home.
Come back to Ontario for the spring and begin my final full wedding season in Ontario. So bittersweet <3
Spend quality time with friends and family and have Jackson “graduate” Senior Kindergarten with his classmate and dear friends.
Make the permanent and official move to Nova Scotia at the end of October 2018.
So I feel like I have to explain. The WHY!
Why so quick?
Well to try and answer these questions as quickly as possible, something I will go on more details on a later blog post.
We found the PERFECT HOUSE and we just couldn’t let this one go. The original plan was to move to Nova Scotia in 2019 and rent for a year until we would find the perfect home. But God always has other plans when we make our own. For years we would pray about the NEXT STEP, our vision of where to raise our family and what the future holds. Looking back– this journey began 3 years ago and really I can see His hand in this long before that.
So I want to wrap up this post and save the rest for another post(s) As I feel there is a lot to say considering everything. I will try to be an open book about this whole journey and share as much as I can about our new transition. So if this is something that interests you and have always been secretly excited about…like you know… making a crazy drastic move and relocating your entire family to another province. Then this post is for you.
I will end this with a photo of our new home and a personal invitation to connect if you ever find yourself on the East Coast of Canada, specifically Nova Scotia!! I am sooo excited to photograph the change of scenery and connect with new people but seeing a familiar face would be so wonderful.
If you are curious and have any questions or want to connect please send me an email and I would love to chat with you! Send me an email though the contact link on my site.
