Getting to Know You
Hey Canadian Foothills…it’s nice to meet you. It’s been kind of like a Match.com first date, getting to know my new hood for the summer.
Rent is cheaper + it’s closer to Jeff’s location on Hell on Wheels, so we decided to give it a try this year. I had NO IDEA what to expect from the area or it’s surroundings. I haven’t done much exploring yet, but let’s take a looky-loo around my neighborhood shall we?
One thing I’d like to announce is that I’m loving all the big, blue sky!!! Alberta is actually known as “Sunny Alberta” because it has more hours of sunshine than any other province in Canada. Didja know that? Cheers, mate!!!
It’s a 20 minute drive into the next town, Okotoks where I do most of my errands. I like to support Black Diamond’s businesses, but if I want to get a lot of things checked off my list I often make the drive to Okotoks. This next picture is to give you an idea of the roads in the Foothills.
Lots of flat ranch land for miiiiiiles.
This is definitely a new experience for me + I’ve never lived in the country before! It’s going to take a little getting used to. I’ve just been dipping my toe in the water + testing things out. Still getting settled. I do miss Calgary + we were in a pretty sweet location last year. But being out in the country will force me to get caught up with paperwork so that we don’t get bogged down like last year. It’s a quiet life, but it’s already given me lots to think about + ideas to turn into action! Stick around + enjoy my little slice of country livin’!!!!
