When I returned to my hometown of Calgary just over a year ago (after nearly ten years away in Toronto, then England and finally Australia), I wasn’t sure what 2013 would bring. But fortunately, I’ve had the warmest welcome a girl could ask for. I’ve had the chance to reconnect with some old friends, make new ones, pursue some personal and professional goals and spend some much-needed time with my family. I couldn’t have done all of this anywhere else, and 2013 turned out to be one of the best years ever. There really is no place like home.
There will be many more books to blog about in the days ahead, but today I wanted to share Calgary mayor Naheed Nenshi’s rendition of Santa Claus is Coming to Calgary. Our fabulous mayor is just one of many reasons that this city is such a great place to live (and isn’t it awesome that he reads?).
Merry Christmas, everyone! I hope your holiday season is happy, peaceful and spent in the company of friends and family.
