Birds in winter have their fling,
But always make it home by spring.
It's just another ordinary miracle today.
-- Sarah McLachlan

I heard Sarah McLachlan sing Ordinary Miracle at the opening of the Vancouver Olympics, and I knew then that my trip home this spring / summer would be a bit different:

I'm bringing all my stuff with me.

This is it. I've accepted a job back on Prince Edward Island, and am moving back! I start in mid June...

I will write more about how I found the courage to (finally) overcome my inertia, how much I'll miss my friends in St Louis, and so on, but for now I want to get out the news. I'm very excited!


ps. I will post on my other blog but not just yet.

pps. Almost everyone in St Louis has said "you've been talking about this since I've known you". True, true. I did just live year-to-year, and though my 'St Louis Experiment' was really wonderful, that is a hard way to live. The 'PEI Experiment' is the next chapter.

I am sure Jennifer knows a lot about moving and could give you a few tips.

It will be a sad day in STL when you leave. I am happy for you though - it seems like your heart is in PEI. Who knows, maybe the West Coast Pinkards will make the trek to see you. (Or you can come see us -- we have a guest room...)

Congratulations and I wish you the very best of luck. I hope you keep your blog going so we can keep up with this next stage of your life!

Thanks for the good wishes everyone... Btw, there is more than one Jennifer on here. The one who used to blog North of Nain certainly knows a lot about moving.
