Giant TigerThis month I had the pleasure and blessing of joining the Giant Tiger team at an Ottawa Fury FC game at TD Place to hand out roses to the ladies at the game to celebrate all females, especially mothers on the Saturday before Mother’s Day! It was an incredible honour to hand a rose to a woman, regardless of age, and see their face light up at Giant Tigers’ thoughtful gesture. It was a beautiful experience as a team of women, along with Giant Tiger’s furry favourite Friendly, to recognize all women with white and red roses in celebration of motherhood regardless if they are traditional mothers or not!

I’m up for the challenge. I have never been partial to the winter season and was usually depressed the minute fall arrived because I knew it meant one thing…winter is coming. This year was different. I enjoyed every moment of fall and instead of dreading what’s to come, I lived in the moment awaiting (and preparing) its expected arrival. I wasn’t hopeless at the first sight of snow in September, but rather full of hope and excitement for new possibilities, adventure, and a season full of winter sports and exploration. That’s what northern living is all about right? Continue reading
