Thank you, Danielle, for this perfect bracelet. If one piece of jewelry could sum up our year, I think this is it. 🤣 🍋
When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. Or as my daughter says – when life gives you lemons, shout “I don’t want your damn lemons!” But seriously, over all the hard stuff isn’t everything. Sometimes, life gives you lemons and you end up making the most out of them anyway.
Alex and Ani’s When Life Gives You Lemons bracelet supports Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, LEX AND ANI will donate 20% of the purchase price* with a minimum donation of $50,000 between April 2018 and December 2019, to Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation to increase awareness of childhood cancer and to help fund pediatric cancer research.
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!
