What makes Nova Scotia such a special place on earth for you?

Nova Scotia is a beautiful little province where I was born and grew up.  I've been from one end to the other and the landscape offers everything from a great view of the Atlantic Ocean to large fields in the Valley. Nova Scotia is the most beautiful in the fall with all the orange and yellow colours of the trees. Halifax is a great city because it's small enough to walk around it in one day and run into people you know. It's more personal than a larger city like Toronto. It's where I'm from and I plan on staying here 🙂

  1. Jacqui you have inspired me. My favourite desert is cheesecake and yours is absolutely a favourite of mine. I have bought it 3 times since it hit the stores. I never used to want to bake, but since I have been at home taking chemotherapy treatments, I have more time so I have started to bake and even tried a couple of cheesecakes, they didn't turn out as amazing as yours, but I am still trying. You are very creative and I am keeping everything crossed for you in the final. Keep smiling and I wish the very best for you.
