A New Chapter- Goodbye Vancouver

Ari and I have been in Vancouver for 2 years now and it has been such an amazing time.  We've played countless shows with loads of local bands, busked at the farmers markets, hiked many a trail, biked around the seawall, visited the beaches, toured with friends, learned some swing dancing, seen so much of this province and in the meantime we learned so much more about who we are, want we want and how to do it.  We have an exorbitant amount of memories of this beautiful city and the people that live in it, which is why it is so sad to be leaving.  

In case you haven't heard yet we are relocating to Salmon Arm, quite possibly for the foreseeable future. It's the place you drove through between Kamloops and Revelstoke on the #1 Highway.  It's such a lovely town with a big appreciation for Roots and Blues music.  It's in a good position for us to tour to Calgary and Vancouver and it also has a mighty fine pie shop.  Moving to the country is something we've both been thinking about for quite sometime. I know I've been talking about having fruit trees and a garden by a creek for many many years now, not knowing if my chance would come.  But it has!  Soon we will be "setting up shop" in a new town, with new friends to make, old friends to invite over, and many new memories to create.  

It's exciting to think of the possibilities.  It's fun to think about the quiet that you can not get in the city.  The darkness.  The stars.  The trees.  The bears and bees.  Honey!!  I'm so excited for people to visit.  

We plan to come back to Vancouver as much as we can.  We will miss it so much.  Thank you to all of you, you know who you are.  (If you're reading this than you're definitely one of them)
