My best friend and her family moved into a stunning new home recently, and between sick kids, work, them moving, today was only our second visit. As most of us had had a very Monday-ish Monday, and impromptu house warming was thrown! One thing that we have in common is that we are both suckers for cute packaging… which is definitely a challenge with my Zero Waste goals in life. My heart gloried in these adorable wine bottles, the beautiful White Rabbit Radler, and the sickly sweet unicorn cake. So please enjoy the pretty labels and bright pink icing, as I adapt to gift giving that comes in mason jars, and handmade cookies. ⠀
But seriously?? Prosecco called Gigglewater??? How freaking cute is that????? ⠀
Originally intended to simply focus on book reviews, over time, KaliDesautelsReads has morphed into its own entity.
I write about issues that are near to my heart, be they political, feminist, motherhood, mental health, or, as the title holds, books.
A thirty-something Canadian woman in my mid-thirties, I have been "super married" to my high school sweetheart since 2006, and together we have two crazy, clever, kind, hilarious, wonderful kids.
My first book - How Not To Blog: Finding Myself, One Post at a Time is available on Amazon (in eBook formats for you clever tech readers, and paperback for those of us who love that new book smell!)
I have tried a podcast - it's still on Apple and Google Podcasts - but writing is where my heart is.
My life changed dramatically when my husband was diagnosed with Stage 3 cancer in 2018, and I am now a writer for a leading Canadian Cancer Non-Profit.
I am lucky enough to have a family that loves me and pushes me to be my best, even if it is outside of my cushiony comfort zone. I have a village of friends that nourish me, mentally, and spiritually.
Welcome to my thoughts. Sit down. Stay a while. Enjoy a cup of coffee!
