Recently voted runner up for Top Vancouver Mom Blogger, I’m having an absolute blast here in beautiful British Columbia, proving there is nothing bland about the burbs.
Our adventurous family, which includes my hubby Jason, Molly, 7, Zoe, 5, and our two pups, seem to always be out on some sort of crazy quest, from impromptu helicopter rides and wild river rafting adventures, to top-secret paranormal investigations and living the high-life sampling the fine wines and foods of the Fraser Valley region.
Truth be told, I used to be a full-time community news reporter, but found it tough to go back to work after my second daughter was born. What started off as a fun hobby has turned into a full-fledged labour of love.
You can also read my monthly parenting column dubbed ‘Pink Laundry’ that’s published in Black Press publications throughout Metro Vancouver.
So sit back, grab yourself a coffee, and get ready to explore all the hidden gems and hot spots in your own backyard.
