I have mixed feelings about life lists and their place on a blog like this one. To post? Not to post? Is it relevant? Does writing it down make me accountable to someone other than to myself? Gah. I’m not sure. But while I think about it I think I’ll keep it here.
This is a living document which will change over time. The difference is that I’ve added in a few life-listy types of things that I’ve already done. (To keep me motivated!)
Many of these things are incredibly out of reach right now (notice how many are travel-related?), but someday I’d really like to:
My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our two daughters Emma (16) and Sarah (14). I am the managing editor of our community newspaper, the Kitchissippi Times, and a regular contributor to MediaSmarts.ca. 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.
