I'm Katie and welcome to the blog! Let me tell you a little about myself:
I grew up in a small town in Newfoundland, but left to go to university on the mainland (as we newfoundlanders like to call it). Hence, the title: Mainland Home. As it turns out, my version of the mainland is Yarmouth, NS.
My partner, Andrew, and I moved to Yarmouth, almost 10 years ago, when I was fresh out of university. I had signed a two year contract to be the regional hospital's speech language pathologist, on their stroke team.
While we initially had plans to leave after the contract was up, we really found our niche in the South West. Andrew became a partner in a local accounting firm and what really solidified our plan to stay here, was the purchase of a piece of lake front property, just a 3 minute commute to the hospital.
I hope document the building of our new house on this blog, as well as to share some of my thoughts and favourite things.
Thanks for stopping by!
