I love this list. Have I ever said this? I LOVE it. (Some of your above links I’ve already read, glad you saw them too!)

On your nightstand thingy….I’m currently reading American Wife. I believe I saw it here first. I’m about a quarter through…so hard to put down. I’m almost afraid to pick it up again bec once I do I can’t stop reading… :)

Thank you! It’s fun for me to pull together. I have actually not read American Wife, but it looks like a great book. I’m putting on my list! I’ve read another book by the same author, called Prep. It was years ago but I remember enjoying it!

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our two daughters Emma (18) and Sarah (16). I am the managing editor of our community newspaper, the Kitchissippi Times. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger, and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999... which makes me either a total dinosaur or a veteran, I'm not sure which! 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.

If you'd like to contact me, please use this form. If you're so inclined, you can read more about me here. Thank you for visiting!
