I’ve been mulling over the photography side of my life and am slowly figuring things out. I hate to be so cryptic, but it’s all still percolating and I’m not quite ready to write about it in full. Let’s just say it’s been something I’ve been thinking a lot about lately. Related: it was Picture […]

Once again, that troublemaker Lara asked me whether I was planning another Hourly Photo Challenge for Easter Sunday. How could I say no?

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.
