Warning! This is a long and rambly and deeply introspective post. It’s all over the place and will touch upon several different largish topics. Subtitle: Let’s Remember That Blogging Is Therapy Sometimes, when I’m talking about blogging, one of the things people ask me about is how I know what to write about. Where do […]

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 […]

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.
