Well... We did it.
it's 2018. i live in the country with 2 acres, 2 dogs, 2 houses, 10 chickens, multiple jobs, and 1 amazing partner.
this is not exactly how i pictured my life, but it's beautiful and i wouldn't trade it for the world.
a bit about me for those who don't know...
my name is kathleen, but i typically go by kat. i'm from vancouver originally, moved to toronto in my mid-twenties on a bit of a whim, loved it, and decided to stay. worked in hospitality my whole life (actually going on 25 years now...) until running a restaurant group and opening too many restaurants for other people caused a bit of a melt down, and i picked up my whole thriving, busy, social, amazing urban life... threw it out the window and landed in the middle of wine country. Prince Edward County to be exact.
it was a long, exhausting, tumultuous move that went back and forth to the city; thriving career to unemployed and back; partnered, to *almost* broken up, and back together; multiple property transactions; numerous renovations... and one looooong epiphany. now we're here and mostly settled so i figure sharing and documenting this process might be a useful process for us, and an interesting journey to follow.
i hope you enjoy reading about it as much as we're enjoying living it.
