About Lost & Found in Philadelphia
Once upon a Canadian, my husband, Derrick found himself a job opportunity just outside of Princeton NJ. As a family, our cat Peeta, Derrick, and I packed our bags, and relocated to Philadelphia Pennsylvania, USA as of January 31, 2016. With this blog, I invite you to share this adventure with me as I try to find my new home, and new purpose, in Philadelphia, the City of Brotherly Love. I’ve never lived outside of Canada, and I know nothing about Philly other than what Google has told me. This is all pretty new!
This is the first time I have “stopped” since I was about 2 years old- I’ve always had an agenda in play, and a community that I was connected to. Every day here is a new, unexplored, and daunting opportunity that needs to be more than binge watching American Idol.
This blog is a journal of my stories as I get lost and found in Philly. At the bottom of each post, I include a song that I think captures the feeling of that specific post-experience. I encourage you to get in the mood, and listen to the song as you read the post. I invite you to come on this journey with me- come and get lost!

Hello! My name is Mike Plumton and thanks for checking out my blog! I grew up in the friendly town of Norwood, Ontario: population 1300. I went to theatre school, and then followed my love of community into the world of Student Housing & Residence Life. I spent 8.5 years overseeing the fun and not so fun stuff in Residence. I love movies, theatre, animals, and wellness. My cat Peeta inspires me, and bites me, everyday. My wonderful husband Derrick makes me laugh and is my number 1 fan. I also journal my daily life through photos, and you’ll see highlights through my posts.
I’m an explorer- there’s adventure possible in everyday. Sometimes it just needs to be found.
