Candace Derickx couldn’t find “Pleasantville” in the real world, so she created it online at Life In Pleasantville — where everything is wine and roses, with the occasional overflowing toilet to keep things honest. With two tween girls and a stepson at university, a restless husband and an attention-grabbing dog, Candace keeps her family’s passports full with travel by plane, train, automobile—and motorhome. Together, they’ve travelled extensively through Canada, the United States, Caribbean and Mexico.
