Regardless of omens and signs, with all of the news lately about the multiple bushfires, heatwaves and evacuations, the country and our friends are in our thoughts a lot.
A decade in review: 10 years blogging, 7 spent abroad and 4 different countries lived in. Following my intuition around the world and creating new adventures and experiences!
I thought I’d share a bit of reading material I’ve been using to help with the past five months I spent hibernating during one of Ottawa’s coldest winters in a while. A recent book I’ve been reading is called ‘Broad Strokes: 15 Women Who Made Art And Made History (In That Order)‘ by Bridget QuinnContinue reading “Choose Yourself First: Women Making Art (And History)”
You may remember I have been working on a startup concept (including a book)* for women since becoming pregnant and having my son abroad in the UK.

I came across this quote recently and it made me think, for every: missed opportunity; closed door; firm no; and I told you so. There’s always been: something different (sometimes greater); someone else; or some surprise… …waiting in the wings. A wise woman I once worked with held firm her belief: “A good no is better than aContinue reading “When one door closes”
