Angela Gray is a Nova Scotia girl learning to love Manitoba. She was born and raised in a small town in the Annapolis Valley. After high school she moved to Halifax and ended up living, working, and attending university in Halifax for many years. Angela’s life changed dramatically in 2007 when she and her husband, who was also born and raised in Nova Scotia, moved to rural Manitoba without knowing anything about the prairie province. The transition from east coast to the prairies was a difficult one and she will always consider herself a Nova Scotia valley girl. Every year Angela returns home to Nova Scotia to visit family and friends, and to explore her favourite Nova Scotia attractions and communities. Although she enjoys the prairies and her new life in Manitoba, her heart will always belong on the east coast. One day she hopes to return home to Nova Scotia, build a small cottage by the ocean, and vow to never move away again.
