Februarys Gone By

by | Feb 13, 2020

This is the second February we have been in our lovely little rental house in Sackville, NB. But prior to this, the shortest of months has provided plenty of excitement!

I met my love in February 2014, while working on Noel Coward’s Blithe Spirit at Walterdale Theatre. Directed by my (now) dear friend CK, it was a collective of amazing people working together on something magical. Ruth Condomine was one of my all time favourite roles.

CK knew Bee through work, and hounded him to take on Sound Direction for the play. If he didn’t, who knows if we ever would have crossed paths? Sadly, I have no photos of the two of us that year as we were “just friends.”

I skipped the trip south to visit my folks for Christmas 2014 in order to spend the holidays with Bee and his family in Alberta. So to make up for it, I travelled to Texas in February for a week. It was a nice break from the long winter, but I missed my love.

Our 5 month European adventure was coming to an end, and we spent most of February in Athens, Greece. Bee’s brother came to stay with us for a week and it was an awesome end to an amazing adventure.

Spending the previous winter in the mediterranean left us less than enthused to face the frigid temperatures in Alberta, so we splurged on a break and headed to Havana, Cuba with our friend LB.

We were staying at my folks’ place while they went south. Our original plan for moving out here was not working out, we had no jobs or prospects, and we were basically holed up together just trying to figure out what to do next! We always figure it out ❤️
