Today’s post was going to be something else. After all, I just experienced a career…

Calling all sports families!
Are you that family? Do your kids play sports? Better yet, are you the team manager?
I am super excited to announce a new partnership today. I think you will agree it is the perfect collaboration for this hockey mom of two boys. I’ve teamed up with Holiday Inn Express brand that has 96 sports-friendly hotels across Canada!
Can We Chat Over Coffee? The Answer is YES!
As I shared two weeks ago on Instagram, I decided I wanted to give back to my Montreal community, so please mark your calendar for in 48 hours:
Thursday, September 28th, 8:30am – 10:30am
The Standard Cafe
5135 Rue Sherbrooke West, Montreal, QC, H4A 3M6.
So, this came up in my Facebook memories yesterday. My second blog post ever. Feeling all sentimental this week since it was our 8th blogiversary on Monday, so I thought I’d do a little #ThrowbackThursday in honor of anniversary week.
Wow, how times have changed (like the weight gain since this post), and yet still remain the same!
Enjoy blog post #2 – exactly eight years later.
Today we celebrate the 8th anniversary of a blog that was born out of feeling stuck, on the fence, alone, confused, and wanting to create a space for women to get inspired, get off the fence, grow, succeed and thrive. You have made that happen. I am grateful for this community who has stood by me in my darkest hours, my greatest triumphs, and given me a safe place to be authentic myself. You have also helped each other, and inspired each other into action. Never underestimate the power of a few simple words on a page.
This year I am celebrating our Blogiversary by flying to Toronto to attend an evening of women’s empowerment for WIFT (Women In Film and Television), and you can follow that journey on my social media channels.
So, this is not a political blog. I’m pretty sure you know that by now.
But, I do have something I really want to say, so here goes…
For some, today is a day to rejoice and celebrate. Change is upon us, and Donald Trump will become the 45th President of the United States of America for the next four to possibly eight years. For others, this is a very sad and scary day.
Do you hear that sound?
It’s the sound of the home stretch. The approach of the end of another year. Christmas, Hanukkah, Nat King Cole and reindeers, BOXING DAY, New Year’s Eve! It’s also the time where I close up the blogging shop for 2 weeks to spend time with my family. As you know, it’s my gift I give myself every July and December. I rest the mind, and come back rested and rejuvenated with fresh content in January.
