Monday marked the end of a great visit with my parents. Saying goodbye at the end of a wonderful visit always reinforces for me how hard it is to be so far away from family. This month makes it a year that we’ve been in YK sans family. Previously C and I were lucky enough to have his parent’s living just a short walk up the street from us and were able to fly down to Edmonton on a fairly regular basis to visit my parents. This past winter was harder than I had anticipated but it made being able to see them all at Christmas even sweeter!

Luckily we will  be reunited with my family shortly, when C and I drive down to Edmonton for my sister’s wedding! I can’t wait to get in some quality time with my cuter than words niece, little C.
