Oh Canada

Today I'm leaving for my mom's motherland and even though the circumstances aren't the best, I'm a bit excited to go. Mainly to see the family that I haven't seen in years but also to see one of the most beautiful spots in the world. Not many people from the states get to visit Nova Scotia in their lifetime and I'm lucky to have been there many times. I'm especially grateful for the trip Brad and I took back there the summer after we married. He has seen it all and knows exactly where I'll be this next week, which in some small way helps. It's is geographically stunning and a little corner of the world that I think everyone should try and visit. Not sure you believe me? Look at this:

Halifax skyline

Peggy's Cove, one of my favorite places ever

Peggy's Cove

The Citadel

Along with scenery that will make your head spin, the food is divine. Lobster that melts in your mouth, the best fish and chips EVER and local cuisine that will leave you wanting more. For these reasons, I'm excited to go. But I already miss my sweet family and pray that everyone will be ok while I'm away. If you see my sweet kids, give them an extra hug from me. And check in on The Rizz. He'll need it.

See you soon!

Good luck this week and have a fantastic time! It IS pretty so maybe I'll put it on my list probably at number 12. That is where the non tropical places start...

I am certain you have mixed emotions about leaving and the reason you are traveling in the first place, but enjoy celebrating your grandma and spending time with your family.
