Finding home

When I first moved to Victoria from Alberta in 2011, I wanted to spend time in places that made Victoria feel like home. Home feels and looks like cozy cabin settings, intentionally-designed spaces, and time with people who fill my cup (with coffee, of course). It didn’t take long for me to find comfort and joy in Victoria – I found it in exposed-brick cafes, alleyway artisan shops, and oceanside hikes, just to name a few.
