Hanging by a very very thin line

Posted by: andrea In: Misc. life|Uncategorized

So. This is what I’ve been doing when I haven’t been scribbling/working/caring for my children. Redoing my site! Let me tell you. This has not been a piece of cake. I decided to migrate to Moveable Type. It’s been a nightmare, and I suck at this. So expect some fiddling around while I get the […]

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.
