A little more than a month ago, I packed my whole life into my car and drove the 12 hours from Vancouver north to the tiny village of Burns Lake. If the highway didn’t curve so abruptly forcing you to slow down on your way through, it would be one of those “blink and you miss it” sort of towns.
How did I – a 24-year-old lover of Vancouver – end up here? Well, the easy answer is that I moved for a job: it’s at the local college as a family support worker. The less easy answer involves my blogging partner, Jessica, who has a known talent for talking me into just about anything. It also involves a love for intentional living, for slowing down, for finding joy in the small things. And this beautiful little village is the perfect place to do that.
So the goal of this blog is to share with you our northern small town adventures, in whatever form they happen to take. Our cooking discoveries, our gardening attempts, our creative outlets, and our favourite wine choices (the latest is Hester Creek Cabernet Merlot, by the way).
Welcome to the adventure!
