Walking across the stage at my university convocation, the only thing going through my mind was: “Now what?”
I had no immediate plans for a career or further schooling, so, on a whim, I hopped on a plane and went to Lake Louise, Alberta to work at the gorgeous Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise. The plan was to stay for a year. I returned home after almost four.
The splendor of the Lake and the surrounding area alone was enough to convince me to stay longer. I’d never seen mountains before and was stunned by the powerful beauty of them. The glacial water of Lake Louise was just as hypnotic—it changes colour throughout the season from a deep clear blue to a cloudy cyan and back again. My new backyard was pretty incredible.
