ontario, canada | going home & a different kind of adventure

Flying over our beautiful Coastal Mountains, I was proud. I live here, I thought. What a fortunate place to be able to call home. When I compare where I live now to where I came from, it has never even been a close competition. Then again – it’s not really even a fair fight. I…

#JOBLOVE | a few moments to brag
