My plan for this space is to highlight things I heart, things I observe, things I could live without, things I… well, you see where this is going.
I grew up in a rural Cape Breton village, for which I have great fondness. Port Hood will always be home to me. I first came to Halifax 19 years ago to attend university, and I’ve been here ever since. Over the years I’ve called many neighbourhoods home, from South End to Clayton Park to Spryfield. Dartmouth didn’t occur to me as an option until a good friend moved to a lovely flat just up the street from the Dartmouth Ferry Terminal. I found myself spending more and more time in the City of Lakes until it became clear I was meant to be a Dartmouthian. From the moment I moved across the harbour, Dartmouth captured my heart. The love affair has been going strong for close to 8 years.
While this blog won’t be all Dartmouth all the time, it will often serve as a love letter to my scrappy little city.
