blogoversaryI am gonna get a bit sappy here and say wow, I can’t believe we have made it to our 3rd Blogoversary! My baby is three years young; where did the time go? I recall sitting at my kitchen table (just like I am write right now) and taking the first step to setting up a blog.

The 2014 Sabrina Shannon Memorial Award Recipients!

sabrina shannonThe Sabrina Shannon Memorial Award is dedicated to the life of Sabrina Shannon, an inspiring teenager who suffered a fatal anaphylactic reaction in 2003. During her life, Sabrina worked to raise allergy awareness by creating the first-person radio documentary, “A Nutty Tale,” which aired on CBC radio in 2001. Since her passing, Sabrina’s parents and other members of the allergy community have kept her spirit alive by advocating for allergy-safe schools and communities.

#Glamping At Lonesome Pine Resort, A Parkbridge Community

glampingEarlier this summer the family and I set out on an adventure to go glamping at Lonesome Pine Resort on Pigeon Lake. This little slice of heaven is located in the Kawartha Lakes region, not too far from Bobcaygeon, Ontario. You know, the place immortalized in The Tragically Hip song, “Bobcaygeon.” We had been invited to check out “glamorous camping” otherwise known as glamping, at one of Parkbridge’s beautiful Cottage and RV resorts. I was completely game for this weekend away, but hubby wasn’t too sure.  He is not a camper in any sense of the word. Continue reading

One Direction: Interview With @Canada1DProject

one directionAs many of you are aware my daughter and I recently attended our first One Direction concert here in Toronto.  We truly had the time of our lives and I would take her to another one if the opportunity every arose.  One of the things that impressed me the most was the preparation and dedication that many Canadian fans of One Direction put into this concert.  Leading the way was a young lady whose love for One Direction manifested itself in a Twitter campaign to #TurnTorontoRedWhite. A whole subculture of #Directioners supported the idea when the band was in town to play two sold out shows during their #WWATour (Where We Are Tour). I would like to share my interview with this mega One Direction fan…
