Spring break 2020 looks a little different than we anticipated. All of North America, in fact a lot of the world as a whole, is participating in the most Gwyneth Paltrow of activities since 2016’s “conscious uncoupling” – “social distancing”.
No flying, no travelling, no crowds, no movies, no malls, no theatres, no museums, no play dates. Instead, my family spent Day 1 of Spring Break in the icy clear air taking in the natural wonder of our region. 5k with my kiddos, my fur-niece, and Ty and Danielle! We came home with shiny pink cheeks, frozen noses, and full hearts. The kids loved walking with their auntie and uncle and Charlie, and not once did we hear a single complaint. In fact, we even ran into 2 “no drama llamas” at the trail head! Neither Charlie, nor my boy were very excited about the llamas lol
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!
