Can we make Mom-Monday a thing?? 4 years ago today, my mommy and I got to see the admirable @hillaryclinton on her book tour in Vancouver. No matter what, my mom loves me and enthusiastically supports my love of politics and books and everything else that makes me smile!
I am so grateful that we got that time together and as always, we had such a great time.
Repost – I am so excited to see Hillary Clinton today!! A living, feminist pioneer. A political icon. An author. Amazing. Thanks Mom!! This is fully worth a day off work in the middle of the week!
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!
