This year brought a lot of challenges and hard days, but the upside is that we bought our first house in the Okanagan in the spring. Vernon is a big change from Vancouver and I really like it - sunny weather, hot summers, snowy winters...orchards...wineries. People say, "hello" and "good morning" as you pass on the street - that never happens in Vancouver.... Sometimes in life we have to take big leaps of faith and that's what we did buying in Vernon after only one previous visit. I always trust my intuition and make big decisions based on a combo of logic and feeling.
