...... we are moving to Canada!
It has been a long road to get to this point, but the stars started to align in so many ways we never thought possible. The dreams we had, the dreams we have been working so hard to get to, they are becoming reality NEXT month. We still have to pinch ourselves every once in a while to make sure aren't dreaming anymore and this is actually happening!
My entire family lives in British Columbia, Canada. I was born and raised in central BC, Okanagan, where my family still is. After Stephen and I decided to get married we knew it would be a goal to one day move to BC and continue to raise our family.
what will we miss about Arizona?
Oh there are so many things! Most importantly we are going to miss Stephen's family! His parents and one of his brothers (and his family!) live in Arizona. We can't wait for them to come visit us in Canada! Other things we will miss: TARGET!!! What will I do without target?! The variety of restaurants and for Stephen all his fast food restaurants he loves so much. I am going to miss the beautiful desert and sun everyday, but we are excited to have actual seasons. We will also miss the the easy accessibility to almost everything being here in a huge city. It will be an adjustment going to a small town, dealing with weather issues, and learning to cook each night but we are up for the challenge!
what does this mean for C&B?
As most of my blog content is focused around Fashion and Style I am going to do my best to try and keep that up...however the mall in our new town is not very mall-ish. The closest actual mall is an hour from me, and the closest Nordstrom is 4 hours... what!!! So I know there will be some adjustments in this area as well. I am going to do my best to give updates on how the move is going for us, our life getting settled in a new area, and all other parts of life. So I ask that you stay with me and be patient as we take on this adventure and see how the blog plays along!
what about my Stesha Jordan Photography company?
Yes, that will continue! I am excited to already be working as soon as we arrive. The Okanagan (the area of BC we will be moving) is gorgeous and their wedding industry is huge! As much as I am going to miss the beautiful desert landscape, I am excited to be able to photograph lakes side weddings, wineries, and the incredible forest. You can follow along on that journey as well if you would like here on my website
or here on instagram
! Will I be back to Arizona?! Heck YES! For all of my amazing clients in Arizona I will be retuning twice a year, Fall and Spring to still capture your special moments. My Fall dates are already book, so email me for booking info: firstname.lastname@example.org
