I have lived in all 3 prairie provinces of Canada.
I was born in Manitoba,
moved with my family to Alberta
and then to Saskatchewan
moved back to Manitoba to marry Wayne
intended to move back to Alberta
but stopped in Saskatchewan over 25 years ago
Although I would move to Alberta in a minute
in the light of day, Saskatchewan just feels right to me.
We spent the weekend in Calgary, Alberta
and even though I love the shopping, restaurants, mountain views
and the chance to visit friends and relatives
what I miss about home when I am in Alberta is:
- that in 'rush hour traffic' it only takes me 6 minutes to get home
- that Saskatchewan is the 'sunshine capital" of Canada
- that we seem to be in less of a hurry to get somewhere when driving
- that we do not participate in day-light savings
what I miss about home when I am in Manitoba is:
Of course, having visited a few different places in British Columbia, but never having lived there, I must admit...I wouldn't mind experiencing living there for awhile. I think that is why one of the things on my 'bucket list' is to visit every province in Canada. I think it's important to be well versed in your home country. In the end, it's important to have pride in your home, otherwise, why live there - right?

even if you have a new home that has nicer wallpaper
and a more efficient dishwasher." ~
