Halifax opened my eyes and my heart

I moved to Halifax in 2010 from Ontario.  I had always dreamed of living somewhere I could see the ocean everyday.  I fell in love. Coming from a small sheltered town, downtown Halifax opened my eyes and my heart. Halifax made me more accepting, more trusting, more loving and taught me it was ok to be myself.  7 years later Halifax is my forever home.  It stood by me as I came out and I will forever have my heart in downtown.  Thank you Halifax!
