Missing Mission...

Yes - eventually one or both of us will blog about our day. But let me just say for now, our Sabbath adventure really reminded both of us how much we REALLY want move away from the city!

Just driving over the Mission bridge, I could feel the tension dissipating. The (ultimately ill-fated) drive up to Harrison Hot Springs was so replenishing!

I really, really miss living in Mission. I spent one very pivotal year in Mission, communting to school via bicycle. Every day I went down the hill, over the bridge, and into Abbotsford. I would bicycle around in back of Mission to work off stress. City (sub-urban) living (not to mention urban bicycling!) is so stressful, so busy, so many people!

Even where we now live is way more urban than either of us prefer. Give us trees, lakes, mountains, quiet, and clean air over the hustle-and-bustle of a city any day! When we move again, it will most likely be to somewhere farther east of Vancouver.
