A Little Place Called Home

This morning MoneySense Magazine announced that Vancouver was #10 on their ‘Canada’s Best Places to Live‘ list. I know top #10… eye roll.  Based on their rating factors, a few issues in Vancouver brought the ranking down – average house price ($882k – whoa!) and average household income (a slim $81k). Fair.

I read the survey, freaked out over the rating, then thought – I am willing to put up with the housing costs and low incomes in order to live in this city. Truth! Get a roommate, bunk with your sister, live with a psycho boyfriend – do what it takes to make this city work.

Vancouver makes me feel like I’m whole.

Note: Something I love about the digital world is how random things appear in front of you at any given time. Thanks to Amber for sharing this video of downtown Vancouver. Gave me goosebumps. Well done Joel Schat
