My passions are my son, the environment, animal rights (and all things to do with animals), traveling and the field of developmental disabilities.
I am an optimistic cynic and a total goof ball! I have a pretty hard shell, but a soft interior. I like corny, cheesy, ridiculous romance, as long as it isn't taken too seriously.
I don't believe in regrets, I am very loyal to the people I hold in my heart, I believe in helping others and that the simple things in life are the things that end up mattering the most. I crave adventure & spontaneity from deep within my bones.
I love; music, trying new beers & wine, nature, camping, canoeing, swimming, hiking, picnics, roller-blading, the ocean, hammocks, animals, Monet, antique meets modern, ice cream, pumpkin cake with cream cheese icing, trees, jewelry, dry & awkward humor, laughing till you cry, photography, board games, card games, dancing, the moon, flowers, architecture, reading, potatoes, sea food, putting things together, getting my own way, quiet places, music festivals & concerts, going to new places, trying new things...and probably lots more.
I went to Ottawa U and studied Criminology, but haven't finished my degree yet. I found many of my classes to be very interesting and a few of my professors really shaped how I view the criminal justice system, but don't see myself working in that field.
I used to be pretty good with a pencil, chalk and a paint brush, but haven't worked on anything in quite some time now. It is something I would like to get back into :)
I'm in love with so many singers/bands (in no particular order); Stars, The Paper Kites, Mumford & Sons, Florence & the Machine, City & Colour, Paulo Nutini, Yoav, Broken Social Scene, Metric, Coldplay, Wilco, Gomez, The Black Keys, Jack Johnson, The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Neil Young, Jimmy Buffet, The Lumineers, Half Moon Run, Of Monsters & Men, Young the Giant, Joni Mitchell, George Ezra, Haim, James Bay, Terra Lightfoot, Lord Huron, etc.
It's a great moment when you hear something new and fall in love with it!
I try my best to be a conscious consumer in all aspects, including with what I'm eating and feeding to my son. I read the ingredients on everything and have a pretty good idea of what to avoid. I believe in buying organic and locally grown, as much as possible.
