Our first anniversary in Vancouver

Exactly one year ago today, Daisy & I boarded a plane headed for our new life in Vancouver.  We left my stable job and a group of wonderful friends behind and headed into the unknown. I remember waking up after our first night in the gnome home crying, wondering what the hell I had done.  Then I looked out the window, saw the mountains and smiled.  It was Daisy & I against the world and we were going to succeed!

Giving up a life I had built for myself in exchange for the unknown was a scary thing to do, but I don’t regret my decision one bit.  We are blessed to live in a wonderful neighbourhood in Vancouver, full of beautiful trees, flowers and cute critters.  At my doorstep is a variety of restaurants and grocery stores. Our lives are pretty darn good, though I do miss my friends.

To my readers (aka my loyal cult following), please take risks with your life.  The worst thing that can happen is that you fail.  Failure makes you human.  Not failing either means you didn’t try anything or you’re a superhero of some sort and should go fight crime in your spare time 🙂  Life is an adventure, one that is full of success and failure.  The adventure I started a year ago will continue as I try to navigate my way through this thing called life and all the unknowns that are in store for me.

In the meantime, call your parents or kids, tell your dear friends how much you love them and remember that if a squirrel heckles you, you’re probably wearing a dodgy outfit!

I’ll be back with more recipes and other foodie stuff soon!

love Rachel & Daisy xoxo

      Thanks Moose! I need to Frankenstein a few cookie/cake recipes to figure out some Nutella goodness. Of course there will always be brownies 🙂 Think of things you & Hannah want to do and remind Hannah to bring her swimsuit – there’s a pool in my building and it’s hardly ever used. Also, the beach is nearby but not sure if it’s warm enough to swim! Looking forward to seeing you both soon – squee!
