Whether you happened upon this place by chance, or intentionally sought us out, we are so happy you found your way here. 

We're Andrew and Brittany - creators of NRTHWRD. We are proud Northerners who make our home on Canadian soil, and we also happen to be husband and wife.

Late one night, while sitting across from one another on either end of our living room couch, Andrew and I found ourselves discussing how beautiful (albeit bitter) our Canadian winters truly are. From there we began to observe how easy it is to get into the habit of constantly cursing and complaining about the winter months, and how so many of us (ourselves included!) tend to simply exist during those dark days, putting in our time and wondering if we'll ever see green grass again. 

That night NRTHWRD was born. 

From here on out we want to find ways to celebrate the northern lifestyle. We want to be proud of where we live, and see it for all of its beauty and grandeur instead of always wishing we were somewhere warmer. From the evergreens, to the mountains, to the sparkling Atlantic ocean, we want to always be reminding ourselves (and you!) why living in the North is an adventure. 

We believe that the best way to do that is to:

Adventure Always

Rest Well

Stay Cozy

Consider this a meeting place where you can find all the tools to help you do just that.
