Saturday, May 5, 2018      SPRINGHILL, NS CANADA

We have arrived. To a beautiful wonderful, amazing temporary home. We are going to settle in here a little bit. Have to say I am quite warm fuzzy and tingly in the heart here. I have this new loving family. We are parked at Wayne’s sister’s place and I LOVE these people. Happiness. Not planning how short or long we are going to be here but I know I will enjoy and appreciate every single moment.
