Celebrating My 10th Anniversary in Vancouver

Photo Walk 17

It’s not often in our lives we reach great milestones. Today is one of those live milestones for me. 10 years ago on this day I packed up what little I had; a suitcase, 2 big boxes which housed my computer back then, and headed on a plane to new adventures in the West Coast.

This was to be an experiment. I was going to give it at least 3 months to see if I could make a life here. The only person I knew coming here was Russ and moving in together was scary as hell for the both of us. Now 10 years later I couldn’t think of my life any differently. Things just played well off each other and continued to blossom from there. We have a wonderful home in trendy Yaletown. We have 2 amazing pets – Junior and Syd (but we will never forget Chelsea).

I have amazing friends that have stuck with me through out this whole journey are still very important members of my inner circle. They have helped me in so many ways that I am so thankful for.

The only drawback to my move was moving so far away from my family. This past year has really showed me how important they are to me and how much I love them and miss them.

So Vancouver thank you for making my last 10 years here so wonderful. You have helped me grow up into a responsible adult. You have shown me amazing things. Your beauty is outstanding and no one can take that away from you.

I <3 you

    Happy anniversary Gus! xoxo

  2. Woops, sorry for the late response!

    Congrats on 10 years in your new city, Gus! I sure wish I still lived around the corner from you guys… But, despite the distance, you guys are still a part of my inner circle, and I feel so lucky!
