The Fishbowl goes West… and buys stuff!

Posted by andrea tomkins in: Oh! Things!|travel talk

I want to interrupt this narrative with a wee show n’ tell of a very pretty necklace I picked out while in Jasper.

I have been wearing it nonstop since we came back to Ottawa. I just love it so much.

It’s from a very cute shop called Ransom. We were waiting for a table at Famoso Pizzaria (which was one of the best dinners we enjoyed during our holiday!) and Ransom is almost next door, so we dropped in. I could have spent a lot more time (and $$) here. Check out their Instagram feed right here if you’re curious to see what else they’ve got in store.

I have a lot to say about Jasper, AB. Basically: I love Jasper! It’s hip and fun and young and outdoorsy without the pretentiousness of Banff. But more on that, later. :)

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark. We have two daughters: Emma (19) and Sarah (17). 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. 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.
