ottawa bucket list

There is an excitement brewing in me. This time next week, we will be in Ottawa, all together (Winslow is coming!). It has been over a year since we have all gone to Ottawa together and I am so beyond excited to go. We have lots to do and make up for in our short amount of time while visiting... but it will all be worth it.
Last time I went "home" to Ottawa it was very difficult for a number of reasons. The kids got VERY sick and so did I. We were without transportation for parts of the trip, and Katia was at an age that required A LOT of supervision from me. This time is different, and I am so excited to check some things off my Ottawa Bucket List!
Maybe it's because I haven't left the North in over 7 months, maybe it's because I've been in isolation for a bit too long, maybe it's because I miss my family and friends... maybe it's all of those things.
I am so excited to be home and to do the things that we have missed doing, like oh I don't know... going to a grocery store when I need to?

  1. Oh I'm so excited for you! And thanksgiving in Ottawa - so jealous!! When I was back last month I brought 2Kg worth of cheese curds back to Australia with me and made poutine almost every night in a row for a week lol.

  2. This post made me cry? I blame my sentimental heart. Also, I love that Noah travelled in his old man housecoat :)

  3. Oh my gosh - you have snow already! I bet Ryder didn't mind. Love the picture of the little wood carrier.


Oh goody....I love comments!
