Community


I've got community on my mind tonight. It's election night in Canada, and it's been a very dynamic race in our riding. It's the first time my husband and I have voted in this neighbourhood. Going to our all-candidates meeting was a great way to discover who else lives here and what they are concerned about (the environment, same-sex marriage, childcare). And we learned some more about the nearby streets as we got lost on the way to the polling station (lol). And we'll find out what our country's priorities are in a few hours.

I've also officially finished all of my postcards for the postcard exchange. I had so much fun creating them. I'm really excited to be swapping creations with people from all over the States, England, New Zealand, Australia and even Scarborough, Ontario! It's so fun. I really hope that everyone enjoys what I've created, and I can't wait to see what they've done.

And one of my sister's is moving to a new home, a new community. She's really hoping to find some like-minded spirits, find a place that feels like home and make some true friends. And so I'm wishing this for her too.
