'I Heart Edmonton,' 2009-2012...

After three years and endless memories and experiences, it's time that we say our goodbyes...

'I Heart Edmonton'!
OVER the past three years I asked myself on several occasions if it was time to end this blog. Each time, I was unsure, worried that I was making the wrong decision. Well, as 'I Heart Edmonton' celebrated its three-year anniversary last week, that looming question came up once again. And yes, I again struggled somewhat with it, but deep down I knew the answer this time.

Yes.

It felt like I was giving up on a good friend, saying goodbye to something that's been a big part of my life for three years now. But, at the same time, I felt relief. Because it meant that I can now focus my time on other passions of mine, such as photography, or travelling, or even writing a book some day. Besides, it felt as though 'I Heart' had run its course, that it was time to move on to something else.

I'll always be glad that I started 'I Heart' during the summer of '09, and thankful that folks--from around the world, apparently--stayed tuned in to what I had to say about this amazing city of ours. And appreciative, for all the peeps who helped me or participated along the way.

Perhaps sometime in the future, who knows when, I'll return to 'I Heart Edmonton' and kick off a brand new start. But that's just a thought. So, I guess I should say goodbye one last time, and see what else is out there for me. But not without saying one more, big THANK YOU, Edmonton!! Cheers!
