Hello my friends !
This post is dedicated to my grandfather, my guardian angel, who passed away when I was only 5 years old but with whom I feel a strong connection. He had a great love for the countryside and farming and one of his biggest dreams was to live there. In his forties he moved with his family in the lower Laurentians in Two Mountains. A dream come true.
I was born a city girl. I lived in Montreal until I was 8 years old and then we moved to Two-Mountains to live with my grandmother. I spent part of my childhood, my teen years and early adulthood between Two-Mountains, St-Eustache and the beautiful Oka village in the lower Laurentians. I also often went to Montreal to visit my aunt and cousins. These years spent in the lower Laurentians sowed a seed that was to become a great fondness for the countryside. At the age of 28 I moved to La Baie, Saguenay, a superb region where beautiful scenic country along with great wilderness and a majestic fjord was my playground and the place I called home for ten years. There, my love for the countryside grew stronger and took root deeply within me. Now, after living in Beauce for the past ten years, I realize how the country was always a part of me, even if I was born in a big city, and how my path led me where my heart was.
My guardian angel has spread his wings over me, guiding my steps and illuminating my path, so that I shall find my place among the stars… <3
Wishing you a happy week-end !
