Melissa never imagined that she'd trade in the bustling city life of Toronto for a homestead in the countryside. However, a few years ago the desire for more space and a slower pace of life crept in, so Melissa and her husband Sonny moved their lives 1.5 hours east of Toronto to the rolling hills of Trent Hills, Ontario. The couple has adjusted quite seamlessly to their new environment—it's as if this is where they were meant to be. Melissa explained that every day feels like an adventure, whether it's due to a novel experience, learning a skill or trade, or simply meeting someone new from the community.
