Getting on a plane at 8:30 at night to head home to a full province of people I love, made me so excited. While leaving my boyfriend who is also craving home here in Halifax didn’t make me feel great but God was I excited to go home. My amazing mother and sweet little (Chunky) dog waiting for me. Well not really waiting for me. In order to surprise her, I actually told her, Evan was going back for work, so that she would stay up past her bedtime to wait for him. Now I will say she’s not the best for getting that super excited wow I can’t believe you are here surprise thing going. She basically was confused as to why I was there and kept asking if Evan was coming. Finally after telling her enough times that no mom I am staying for the whole weekend and it’s just me not him.
But she was definitely excited. We spent the majority of time together. She is my best friend and I did want to make sure to give back to her as much as she has given to me. But she wasn’t the only one I got to surprise to do. I surprised my best friend Brenda, she started to cry so I got to have a surprise which ended in tears. Not that I want to make people cry, do not take me wrong here but it was interesting to see someone react. Again she was quite confused why I was there. But the party did not stop got to surprise Lauren at her work which again she cried. I’m assuming it’s all happy to see me tears but who really knows with that sort of thing.
Honestly going home was so exciting. I got to see visit so many people, friends and families. It was a busy 4 days, but it was so much fun. I love that little island so much. It’s just jam packed with people that I love. My heart is there all the time.
I had a conversation with my Aunt as to where she thinks that me and Evan will end up and I could say consistently I want to live in Newfoundland and she kept saying well that could change in time. But for me, that Island has everything I could ever want. Big cities have attractions and grandness but but Newfoundland has heart to me. It’s this place that I’m so happy to be there. Instantly it allowed me to literally feel so at home, and yes it was my home for almost 26 years and I am completely a creature of habit but family, friends and the place make us crave home. I do not think that it will ever change. But you never know this life and I did not think I would live in Halifax.
Since moving to Halifax, I’ve been missing my friends a lot, I have a great group of girls who I’ve been friends with for literally more of my life than not. So going home was for my mom but it was also for them. Those girls make me feel so special and loved. I couldn’t have been more excited to see them all. We stayed up late for us till like Midnight and let me tell you, that is very late for us. All of us enjoy our regular bed times.
I came back to Halifax feeling more recharged than ever about everything. I am excited for the Christmas season and for being able to go back home for Christmas. It will be so nice to see everyone again.
The pictures that were taken in this post were done by Daniela Fougere, she is my lovely friend who is a small business owner, she makes jewelry and I love her dearly. We had a long discussion and took some pictures! Honestly loved seeing her and feeling so productive when I was there. Hope you enjoy the outfit, it’s my go-to. The camel coat is perfect for this season paired with literally everything. Would be a good gift idea for the upcoming season.
