    What a beautiful tribute, Hannah! The world is a much better place because you are in it. How wonderful that you are so open that you continue to let the journey take you where it will! 🙂

  2. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    Sometimes I read your posts and I truly have no words. I want to conjure some up to convey how beautiful your own words are, how exactly right and powerful and inspiring they are, and yet I can’t do so in any way that would do the subject justice. So I am simply going to say this: you are an inspiration and I am so glad for the last 12 months, for you and for what they suggest about life.

    It’s been wonderful watching your adventures from afar over this year Hannah. What a great year you’ve had, with more life delights in life to come.

    Thank you for you, Hannah! I’m fairly new to your blog but every post you make puts a smile on my face. I may have to run up and give you a hug if I ever run into you at Fresh or something. 🙂 Keep on charming the world with your words!

    You are sunbeams. I love you and the light and the laughter you have brought into my life. I can’t imagine the last nine months without you. But…I am really looking forward to the months ahead. xoxo

    Oh, Hannah. This is so moving, so sweet, and such a nice tribute to this phase of your life. Congratulations on all you’re looking back on, and all that lies ahead.

    I want a two-year Canadian work visa. How do you get one of those?

    I love this post. Particularly the last paragraph. Life is grand and wild. Sometimes it does hurt, but the times it soars are far greater. I’m so glad we met. 🙂

    So glad you are having such a wonderful time. We know what a struggle you had to make the decision so it just shows your decision-making apparatus is in very good shape. All the same, don’t forget home! Lots of love from us both.

    Following your journey, it does seem it has been an incredible year. So you’re back in Toronto again! I do hope you have a kinder winter this year (although you’ve probably adjusted by now!) xx

    I think you’ve already had more travel adventures than many have had in their lifetime! And more power to you and your heroic fearlessness!

    Lovely post Hannah … bittersweet for a mum … we love to see you loving life but we miss your warm, loving presence here.

    Life is for those that dare, dream and do! And that includes you my dear Spay Lady!

  19. Camille

    Love this. May all your years continue to be as magical as this one.

  20. Johanna GGG

    are you sure it is a year – it only seems like yesterday! though now I reflect, there has been a lot happening – brave times, fun times, interesting times – may they long continue!

  21. Alayna @ Thyme Bombe

    Life is just so painfully pretty, it makes my heart ache. I love hearing how bewildered you are by this last year of your life. Sometimes life is so wonderful, you wonder if you’ve only imagined it. But you didn’t! It happened! How lucky! How bizarre!

    Is this some of your own poetry you’re sneaking in on us? It’s lovely.

    <3 you to bits, Hannah.

  23. Ricki

    Beautiful. So glad you feel this way, and so glad you are here now! xo

  24. Linda

    I’ve been hearing “attitude of gratitude” a lot lately and I think it applies here as well as to what’s going on in my own life. Very nice blog about the miracle of change and growth and discovering new people and new places and appreciating the journey–both good and bad. Well said!!

    Oh! Beautiful. Life delights in life. This: “For every stumble and every sob that proves I can keep going, for every burst of laughter and soul connection that proves I am exactly where I should be.” You = amazing.

    I still remember when you told me your plans. I was so happy for you and my happiness for you grows evermore 🙂

    It’s de-lovely to see you sharing some of your poetry, Hannah. It seems that this past year has done a great deal of bolstering of all the right things in all the right ways for you. I’ve loved following along, so glad you took the plunge! Onward!
