My husband and I love history. We also love snarky thing and sarcasm, so when I found this plaque at @the_gardening_circle in Fort Langley, I felt like it was perfect for our front porch decor, and bought it as a shared 15th wedding anniversary gift.
So now when I sit outside with my pets, my coffee, and my laptop, I look up and smile. Over the past few years, it is the little things like this that make me happy in my home. Something tiny and random that just perfectly says this is us, and this is our home. It’s weird, and crazy, and chaotic, but it’s ours!
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!
