Home Sweet Home!

I think that there is one thing that most of us living in Alberta can agree on…it’s a great place to call home!

Last week while away at a conference, we learned so much about the power of connection, especially through nature.  We are truly lucky to live in a place that is so alive, a place that connects us all through its’ beauty.  Those of us who get to call being a member of the team at The Crossing ‘work’, have the opportunity to experience this connection on a daily basis. One can not deny the affect that this special place has on them.

I came across some of the videos that Travel Alberta created to share the beauty of our province with the world.  I am still awed every time I watch them and encourge you to take the time to do so as well.  Call it meditation, call it a needed 5 min break from the daily grind, frankly it doesn’t really matter what you call it, but take a few mins and allow yourself to be reminded of the incredible place that we get to call ‘Home, Sweet Home!”

One can not come to The Crossing without noticing the magnificent scenery, and although you may think this is a sole reference to the stunning natural surroundings, you are mistaken!

Not to be awed only by the exterior qualities of the property, The Crossing emminates beauty from the inside out!  With a love for art and a very close relationship with Reflections West Art, based in Calgary, we are honoured to be able to share a beautiful pieces of art with our guests. The Crossing is happy to provide a venue for these magnificient pieces to hang in light filled rooms allowing their true beauty to shine.
