My dad was originally from Saint John, New Brunswick – otherwise known as “The Maritimes”. Most of my Canadian family still live here including my Aunt, four first cousins and 10 first cousins once removed (mum would be so proud of me right now). We spent a little over two weeks here, including a short visit to Ottawa which you can see here.
It was really wonderful for both Cole and me to spend time with my dad’s side of the family. We obviously don’t get to see them much so it was quite special to re-connect and also be reminded that we have a whole family here in this new country now called “home”.
