Cities I've lived in.
1. Ear Falls, Ontario
When my parents were first married, they moved to a small Northern community for my dad to work in a mine. The place was so small that they had to drive to nearby Red Lake to get to the hospital when my mom went into labour.
I have no memories of this place, they moved away not so long after I was born. I would like to see it one day though. They planted a tree when I was born and I'd love to see how much its grown.

Thunder Bay is the city that I consider my hometown. I lived there until I was 25.
At first we lived across the street from my grandparents, which I loved. Before Grade 2 we moved across the city to a new house, which my parents fixed up and made home for us.
Here's a shot from my Where's Waldo camera - my brother and I building snow sculptures, and my sister on the far left.

3. Toronto, Ontario
Eventually I headed for the big city. I shared a house with some friends and stayed for about 8 months in the lovely 'Annex' neighbourhood.
4. Kingston, Ontario
Steve & I had been in a long distance relationship for a bit and decided to move in together. He was studying at Queens University; I moved in with him and his friend Steve.

5. Cannes, France
We packed up everything that would fit in 2 suitcases and sold almost everything else in a yard sale. Our year in France was incredible and I want to move back someday.
Actually, I'd take almost any place that has 300 days of sunshine a year... Love it.

Those are the 5 cities I've lived in for longer than a week ;)
