Dear Alberta,

Maybe I should’ve told you sooner, but I’m leaving. If I could, I would stay. But instead, I need to pursue my graduate studies in Ontario. But I’m going to come home as often as I can. I promise.

But until that time, I want you to know that I’ve always appreciated everything you’ve had to offer,

though perhaps I wasn’t always vocal about it.

But now’s my chance.

I love your snowcapped peaks…

your wild aspen parkland…

your plentiful lakes…

the mysterious badlands where dinosaurs once roamed…

And your rich culture and history…

I’ll miss you.

Love,

  1. I will keep an eye on those mountains and Elk Island Park while you are away To make sure they are still here when you come back :-)
    I hear there are some really pretty places to see in Ontario.
