I am a proud Canadian living and working in our Nation's Capital, Ottawa Ontario. I love reading, traveling, movies, dogs, shopping and of course dinning out with my loved ones (or anyone that loves food for that matter). I wouldn't say I am an active person as I currently work in a "desk job". But when the mood strikes, I love being active outside by running or walking and I consider tanning an "outdoor activity" ;-)
Like everyone, I have had some ups and downs. In 2010 I was laid off from my job of 10 years, 2 weeks before Christmas. That is what lead me to Ottawa and I love it here so it all worked out for the best. I suffered a sever back injury in 2009 and had a disc removed from my spine (L5-S1 in case you are interested). I recovered very well and now I try not to take my health for granted while also balancing the joys of life and reckless abandon!
I was born in Vancouver BC and lived there until I was 12 when I moved to Ontario after my parent's divorced. I have family in Vancouver and go back often to visit. If you haven't been to Vancouver you really MUST go; put it on your bucket list!
My influences are who I consider strong, well rounded women with a sense of humor such as Kate Winslet and Tina Fey and of course my Mom and Sisters.
I am single and plan to stay that way until I meet the right man and I will not get married because I have to or because it is expected of me. I am me and I am different but I am open minded and I wish more people were as well. Thank you again for reading my blog and I wish you love and happiness now and for all your days to come!
