I will admit, I think the weeks are flying by. Despite each of the kids each having a cold (one worse than the other) for a weekend in February and myself run down (but better now!) there is nothing ‘slow’ about February.
It’s mostly been filled with family fun in truth. The kids and I are spending time at gymnastics, play dates, and museums and I think all of us sense that spring is in the air and are itching to go go go.
When I can sit to write and chat online there’s a lot of exciting happening there as well.
I’m the Brand Ambassador for momstown ottawa which is looking for someone to become an entrepreneur with them in this area. More to come on that, but I love what momstown stands for and what they do so it’s a wonderful position to have. Check them out on Facebook and Twitter in the meantime and I’ll chat more about it here soon.
Kindness Week launches today (February 17-24) and I’m blogging on their site over the next week about kindness as I have done for the past couple of years. I truly believe that the kind spirit should take place year round, but this week is a perfect way to highlight how fantastic this city is and most importantly how wonderful the people are.
I have two giveaways coming up this weekend – one from Future Shop and one from the Ottawa 67s so stay tuned for those! (The best way is to sign up to this blog by email – wink wink)
In January, our first Mind Her Business workshop took place that Amanda Degrace, Gwen Leron and myself co-organized. I think it was a huge success and most importantly it really helped me set some goals and plans while there. We hope to continue with some events which I usually post on my Facebook page.
Plus, you may have been reading about my advertisers? Can I just say how awesome they are? It may help that I’m also a customer for most of them (some before they were advertisers!) but really, having the ability to work with such businesses is a pleasure and if you get a chance, check them out. They are worth it!
I’m also working on a few other things but it’s all a little hush hush right now but over the next couple of months more will be shaking.
Meanwhile, I continue to write about a little bit of everything on this blog, where my true writing heart lies. When I think about writing about kindness, and kid activities, and house renos, and television – I realize that I am really writing about the life of a mom aren’t I? There’s no rhyme or reason, no one topic that we focus on. Just a little bit of everything. And I like that 😉
Wishing you a kind week!!
