That's A Wrap

And just like that, we're heading home.  The past few months I have made the trip back home twice with my little peanut. It felt so good being home and being with family.  Both Kyle and I felt it.

The slate board from Kyle's last day on-set.
We've been here for almost three years.  Moving was really hard for me.  It was hard leaving our friends and family especially since we were trying to get pregnant, suffered losses and I needed my support system.  But the opportunity was too good to pass up for Kyle.

Just a couple of months ago Kyle spoke on a panel at ComicCon.  If you have any idea about what ComicCon is then you know what a huge deal this was.  I saw the panel on YouTube and cried.  I watched all of my Husband's hard work and success right before my eyes.  There he was, the Cinematic's Director, answering questions to a crowd of at least 1000 fans.  Then signing autographs.  Yes, you read that right.  It was such a proud moment! This is what it was all about.

Living here has been amazing.  Vancouver is truly one of the most beautiful places.  It's no wonder it's always voted as one of the top places to live-in the world. Not many people get an opportunity to live in another country and I feel so lucky to have been able to say we have. Also I could never live somewhere that didn't have mountains or oceans or at least some natural bodies of water. Vancouver had it all! BUT most importantly, Vancouver gave us Remi, our little dual citizen who can now come back here and live one day if she so chooses.  And I hope she does.  I want to encourage her to travel and experience living in different places.

But to me, home is home. After having Remi I knew I wanted to be close to family and friends so they can see her grow.  So they can see our family grow.  And so next month we will be back in Southern California.  Who knows what the futures holds, I guess we'll just take it one city, state - or country at a time.

So what will become of Whiskey & Tutus?  I started it after The Gaulinoscopy, which was my little blog following along with our wedding planning adventures.  Whiskey & Tutus was my way of letting everyone back home in on life here in Vancouver.  On our adventures here in BC.  I am so thankful to all of you who have stayed with me, even when I took the blog in different directions.  I am working on a post that is the most important thing I have ever written, it's a story I want to share with you all.  After that I will figure out what is next.  Maybe I'll go over to a whole new hosting site.  A more grown-up blog if you will.  I'm sure nearly all of my posts will be about being a new mommy.  Maybe I'll loose some of you, maybe I'll reach out to and gain a whole new readership of mommy's.  Maybe I'll take a break after I write the post I am working on.  We'll see.  Either way my next update will be written from home, which makes me so very happy!

Thank you Vancouver, for bringing us this little miracle.
