I hope everyone has had a wonderful Canada Day and Independence Day holiday! Mr. SixBalloons and I have had a crazy past couple of weeks... We are leaving our home in Vancouver and moving!
The photo above shows the Olympic cauldron and is just one of the many places in our city that we love.
The hubby has a great career opportunity requiring a temporary transfer to Vancouver Island, a 2 hour ferry ride, plus 5 hour drive away.
Our little guy just recently turned four months old. For you readers out there who may not be aware, Maternity Leave in Canada is up to 12 months in duration. The baby and I are going to join Mr. SixBalloons for the next few months until I have to come back and return to work.
We are moving to a town with a population of 2,000 people so it will be a big adjustment for us. At first we were terrified of leaving the support systems we have here, as our lucky little guy has all four grandparents in Vancouver. However, we're looking at it as a bit of an adventure for our young family. Though it is a small town, it is supposed to be very scenic and beautiful - a little spot of paradise on the ocean.
Oh, and in case you're wondering... Yes I have checked. There's two thrift stores in town! :) Stay tuned though. I still have a backlog of sweet finds yet to share.
Nothing better than a vacation
