One of the best things about working is becoming friends with people. Not just work friends, that you enjoy at work and then when one of you leaves you never get to see anymore, but real, honest-to-goodness hold-them-in-your-heart friends.
Every job I have had has resulted in life long friends that I could not imagine not having in my life anymore. Today, one such friend, who now works for a premiere florist in Canada (@calliaflowers), sent me a stunning bouquet today. This stunning bouquet even included rosemary, which is one of my favourite scents in the whole world.
If it wasn’t for past work experience and past jobs and past lives, my life would be ever so much smaller, and ever so much less.
Thank you, Sarah. You made my heart happy today. You make my heart happy everyday, but today was especially welcome. Love you lots and can’t wait to see you at Christmas!
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!
