Our last stop on our adventure to get home was Canada. I was stoked to go because I had never been and it was just fun to say that I've been to Canada. However, due to the fact that the weather was miserable and we were exhausted from our traveling through the night most of our sites of Cananda was seen through the hotel window.
We did venture out to explore the area, but we didn't last long. I mostly just wanted to find a Canadian flag to take a picture of, so that we had proof that we went. Good thing we found one on our last block home. :)
After we were in Canada for about a day we got to fly back to Utah (or Grandma's house) for Christmas! It has been so rewarding and so rejuvenating to visit with family and with old friends. So I am so grateful for this time to visit to renew and strengthen relationships. I am constantly amazed at the ability we all have to grow and learn from our circumstances. And being away from family has really taught me the importance of relationships. I have learned a great deal of what it takes to be a better daughter, sister, and a friend and I am grateful for my circumstances so that I can learn to grow.
