11 years ago this old man came into my life, and I am so grateful that he did. From his first night in our home, to this evening right now, this fluffy pants has never been too far from me. He follows me, trips me on the stairs, sticks his tail over my face in my sleep, yells at me, lays next to me on the couch, sits on my laptop while I try to type, whines for my yogurt and almond milk, and is my ever present companion. It’s hard to remember my life without him, and I am so thankful to have this fluffy ragamuffin to give me his unconditional love. He may never know how much I love him, and how much he means to me, but I really hope he does, because he is my sweet, sweet fur baby.
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!
