I used to think vision boards were a waste of time until this month, when a series of storms prompted a change of heart.

Its a big part of the reason why I … Continue reading Re-discovering Ontario
Twitter is an amazing thing. Without it, I probably never would have met Catherine Addai of Kaela Kay.
