AWESOME photos guys! Love ’em.

Amy, this photo book was done through iPhoto/Apple. It’s super easy to use and I like the quality of the finished product.

Beautiful hourly photos of you. Pictures have clear resolution. I am planning to make my own too, so I can easily recount what I did or been preparing before Christmas.

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our dog Piper who is kind of a big deal on Instagram. We also have two human daughters: Emma (20) and Sarah (18). During the day I work as a writer at The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999. The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
