Okay, it's been a long time coming but I can finally share with you all some big news happening in our world. (Could there be something bigger than a new baby you ask?) Well, our life is about to get a whole lot more interesting. Drum roll please......

We're moving to Canada!

Yes, that's right, the land of snow, moose and ice hockey! Being married to a Canadian, I guess this move has always been a little inevitable as Dave's desire to live in the 'mother country' has always been near the surface. So when the opportunity to purchase a property and business over there, we took it. We'll be running a boutique Lodge overlooking a beautiful lake in BC. It needs some TLC but we're up for the adventure! (I've started brainstorming ideas here on a Pinterest inspiration board!)

Due to the downturn in the real estate market we had to delay our plans by a year, but now there is no out - tickets are booked for a few months time, and we are preparing to leave the known for the unknown (arrrggghhh!! I'm going to miss so many people and things!).

I will still run my online store and continue to share creative living ideas here and maybe even fill you in on some of the journey of moving to another country. I'm also looking forward to connecting with a new circle of Canadian design & party girls (so, if you are one, please say hi!). And maybe being in the Northern Hemisphere, I might even make it to Alt Summit next year....a girl can dream!

I'm trying to live one day at a time, but I am a little nervous about travelling on a long haul with two children. Have you ever done a big overseas move? Do you have any tips or advice for me? xo

  1. That's huge news! You're going to LOVE it Jordan!!! We will miss you but wish you every success xox

  2. so exciting! I'm in Vancouver~your new pad looks lovely!

  3. I'm going to miss you - but what a fabulous adventure and opportunity it will be for you and your lovely family. Xx

  4. I just read your blog for the first time and I have moved from Europe to the United States. I am much younger but still have some pretty good advice for moving to another country. Don't have expectations that are too high. Every country has flaws and soon you will probably find some things in Canada that you wish were the same as they are in the United States, but wishing that they were the same won't make you happy. Just go with it and find things that are new and exciting :) Good luck!!

  5. Wishing your family all the best! How exciting to be running your own boutique lodge!

  6. your new place looks awesome! I'm all the way out in Montreal, Qc so can't be a close scrappy buddy but i'm sure you'll find a bunch in you BC area. good luck on the upcoming move and with baby #2!

  7. I live in Squamish,BC (near whistler)! BC is a great place to live and we have lots if aussie imports here :) Your lodge looks beautiful where is it?

  8. Thanks so much girls. I'm looking forward to the adventure side of things, can't wait!
    April, I never made it to Whistler, but will definitely be in the plans when we move. We're going to be based near Williams Lake & Quesnell, quite cold I hear!!

  9. Wow - how exciting! All the best for the move!

  10. Hello there, simply become alert to your weblog thru Google, and fosbobetund that it’s really informative. I’m gonna watch out for brussels
