So Long Edmonton

This post is about four months late, but it has been on my mind for awhile.  In February of this year I left the city that I spent almost the last 20 years of my life in.

Edmonton will always hold a special place in my heart, for so many reasons.  It is the place where I had some of my most amazing experiences and painful experiences. It is the place where I truly began living my life as it is meant to be lived. Without Edmonton I would not be where I am today and I would not have learned how to love.

For me it is about experiences, places I don’t necessarily miss. The people I met in Edmonton saved me in so many ways. Some of them I no longer keep in touch with and that is okay because life happens, people change. Others have always been there for me, from those who took me in during the holidays when I was living alone, to those who who held me up when I lost one of my close friends. There are those who helped me discover who I am and those who have been my biggest supporters.  To the latest round of friends who took me into their homes when I was living on my own during the last few months and feeling very isolated, they may not realize it but they helped keep me sane.  I am so grateful for all of you.

In the end, it isn’t so much the city that I miss, it is the people. It is the experiences I had with each and every person during my time there. So many memories. Leaving Edmonton I left behind the places where those memories were created and the people that helped me create those memories. All those memories are precious to me, the good and the bad.

So, thank you Edmonton for being the magical place that brought so many beautiful people into my life, some who traveled through and some who stayed. I will never forget you and you will always be in my heart.
