    Hello friends!

    *** Update (March 30) ***

    Hello there friend!
    If you're happen to be in Canada and looking to get away and into nature, we would love to chat about joining paths. Our need of the moment is child care to our 3 kids, Ella (12), Maya (10) and Ethan (7).

    Thank you and looking forward to meeting you!
