WE MOVED!!! I came home and within two days packed the remainder of our house in Vancouver and drove with Andrew to our new home in Coldstream BC. The whole experience was a little surreal feeling having just come home from 3.5 weeks in Europe, still pretty freshly pregnant, and now leaving a home we lived in for 6 years... I was struggling to figure out what was real and what wasnt, and what was forever going to change and what wasn't... truth is, it was ALL REAL and it was ALL going to CHANGE FOREVER... hahaha... Somehow I managed to sneak in teaching a private SUP lesson in the beautiful West Vancouver as well as, a well needed doc appointment along with the necessary blood work and some get together with friends...

Then, all of this happened and you can read about it on Andrew's blog... he did a great write up that takes you from arrival to Vernon/Coldstream to our exciting mtn bike hut to hut to hut trip around Mt Hood and back to Coldstream
In the News:
Despite all of this craziness I managed to make it into some mainstream and SUP news along the way....

I have since been busy moving in... All of our stuff has made it to our new home:) Unpacking takes awhile....
|My commute from home to work:) not too shabby|
I have also been busy working with kids. I have run a kids camp and am running a Junior SUP club with Kalavida Surf Shop.... The community support has been really great and some days I get to teach as many as 30 different kids... whoa... our future for sure:)

Things are good so far.. knock on wood.. I get tired a little faster, and the heat is beating me up a little more than usual but luckily for me otherwise I feel great. I have been swimming in the lake almost everyday. I have been SUPing more than I have ever SUPed before (mostly because I now also commute by SUP) and am still mtn biking (albeit slower and more cautious) and trail running... so not much has changed but I can feel that ever so slowly I am just not as fast or energetic as before... hahaha.
We are beyond stoked for what the present and future have in store for us:)
live, love, laugh,..DREAM!
