My husband and I moved to Vancouver in 2013.
Freshly married, bright-eyed and ready to start our lives in another province. We had been living in Toronto and chose Vancouver in order to be closer to our families in Alberta. Plus: it had mountains, ocean and mild weather.
I won’t lie and say that it was magical and easy and everything we’d dreamed. Moving is hard work, and uprooting our lives to plop them down on the other side of the country was tough. But, as we slowly sink into the Vancouver lifestyle, the more I appreciate it. The fresh air, the outdoor activities and the slower pace have grown on me.
These images were taken during a Harbour Air tour on one of the first sunny spring days. It was so beautiful to see the city and the mountains from above!
