a peek inside the fishbowl

Archive for the ‘Fishbowl patrons’ Category

It’s October out there, but it certainly hasn’t exactly felt like it, has it? I, for one, have been in my happy place, weatherwise. I feel so energized! This weather makes me want to go out and DO IT ALL. It’s the perfect time to get outside and catch up on family time! Not too […]

Awhile back I wrote a post about lice removal service here in Ottawa that happens to be handily close to where we live in Westboro. We’ve had kids with lice. Teens with lice. I’ve known parents with lice in the neighbourhood too. I’m relieved to know there’s a place we can go when we need help. […]

It’s not QUITE September yet, but it’s on the horizon. Surely I am not the only person who feels a surge of excitement and energy this time of year.

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.
