most people are surprised to hear that we moved out to the middle of nowhere from a big city. i suppose it is a little backwards, but truth is, rural saskatchewan has always felt like home. both of my parents were born and raised in skatchy (they moved to alberta when my mom was pregnant with me) and we spent all of our holidays here with family.
whenever they hear ‘saskatchewan’ people think flat and boring, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth. saskatchewan has a beauty all it’s own and it really needs to be seen to be appreciated.
we’ve done a lot of growing out here, as a family, and as individuals. we’ve learned to appreciate the simple things. we’ve learned to slow down and just live in the moment. we’ve learned to be self reliant. we’ve also learned that we just enjoy being together. it was a difficult change from the pace of the city, but one we’ve embraced fully
