We all know that words don't always go far enough. We need visuals too. And that's why Canva is so handy.

But they've got a new Canva for Work coming that is going to change things up. Are you on the waiting list?
I just registered for early access to Canva for Work. Join the waiting list!

Coffee Date

I love the spring. The weather warms up, flowers bloom and everyone gets outside to enjoy nature and each other’s company again. Markets re-open and gardens beckon. Housework takes a back seat (at least at my house), and the outside world shines in the…

Wow, I just read an article about the new sex ed curriculum in Ontario. More specifically, it focused on the backlash against it. And as much as the article tried to be straightforward and present the facts, it is the comments following the article that…

Thomas King's newest novel does not disappoint. With his trademark telling of tales with a big dose of magical realism, you will want to read "The Back of the Turtle".  Two thumbs up in my review.

Story
Tagline
Freelance Writer, Poet, Mother of two and Survivor of Life
Introduction
I love reading and constantly have words flowing out of me. Sometimes it is poetry. Philosophy seems to seep out of many a pore as well. Often times it is what has crossed my path that day. My epiphanies happen from the forest floor to the coffee shop and the many nooks and crannies along the way. My darling children hold sway over my day, so they cross my writing path more often than naught, as you might well imagine. If you want to get to know me more, well, peruse the inner workings of my brain in the pages of my blogs. Journey on my friend!

rebirth

Flower delicate, hesitant growing, reaching, struggling waiting for spring warmth rebirth

With two kids under 10 years, I know that I have a lot of driving to do, whether it be to school, lessons or driving the kids to and from friends houses. I was driving an '01 Caravan that was on its last legs. I needed a new vehicle that would be reliable, plus fit in all the stuff that comes with being a family (school bags, camping gear, a group of kids). When I talked to Adam, we discussed my options and he offered me his advice without being pushy. We looked at vehicles on his lot, as well as other vehicles from partner sites. He listened to my concerns, suggested appropriate options, and made some calls. By the end of the day, all I had to do was decide what colour I wanted my new Grand Caravan to be. It was an easy and quick process, that left me and my family all happy that we got to deal with such a great sales associate. Thanks Adam!
