WCW – my mom and my daughter. Last night I was struggling to order some groceries get us over the hump. My usual money-saving practice of order from Flashfoods (if you have app you know, and if you don’t yet, so now!!!) is not an option because there is no food nearing its expiry date, so unless I plan to feed my kids premixed icing, there is nothing to buy locally.
Then at 10:30pm, my mom magically appeared on my front porch with vegan “meat” and seafood for our family. If social distancing wasn’t mandated I would have kissed her from relief!
Sometimes, when things are scary, we just want our mommies. I am no exception💛
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!
