Here are my results last year. It is an amazing way to document a day […]

There’s been a song in my head that has made a home in my brain right now. I even heard it while I was sleeping last night. It’s this one. And here’s a video about the story behind it. – Edited to add: these recurring photo threesomes are my wee attempt to stop and look. […]

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.
