Four years ago today, #TeamAdventurers arrived in Peterborough.
I had sold our house, quit my job (of 13 years) and moved us to a city I had only been to once before (when I signed our rental agreement).
I had no job lined up and we had no friends; just an urgency for change and a strong faith that things would work out. It was, by far, the most reckless thing I have ever done.
Almost immediately, things fell apart.
But the kids and I had already fallen in love with this place, so we held on for the ride.
And I’m so glad we did.
I can’t imagine raising these kids anywhere else. And I can’t imagine my life without the deeply close friends we’ve made.
It’s been both the best and the hardest years that I can ever remember and I wouldn’t trade them for anything.
