This past October, Scotty and I got together some friends and family and drove to the Annapolis Valley for a day of good honest work at Foote Family Farm. Of course, not everything turned out exactly how we planned, but isn’t that always the way of it?
This photo was taken in Fall of 2011 and recalls for me thoughts of walking paths in Quebec City, the smell of frost on autumn leaves, the many times since then that I have made the 11-hour drive between Halifax and Quebec, and the choices that made me do it.
This has been a year of growth, both together and apart. In less than two weeks, nine months of distance will come to a close. In another few months, we will take off together to explore new cities, new countries, and new continents. While these are far from uncharted lands, they are new to us. But I daresay we’re up for the challenge.
