imageHi and thank you for checking out my blog space. Some of you may have checked out this space before and will notice a few changes, but the idea behind the blog is still the same. This is a space where I’ll share parts of my life in northern Alberta with you, from baking adventures, to DIY projects, and stories about everyday life.

Now for a bit about how I got here…

I grew up in the small town of Orono, Ont. about an hour east of Toronto. I went to a small Christian high school, where I met some of the most wonderful people I know. When it came time for me to take off and go to school I chose the University of Guelph-Humber.

At the end of four years I graduated with distinction with an honours bachelor of applied arts in media studies and a diploma in journalism. It sounds like a lot, but at the end of four years I can honestly say that I’m not sure where those four years went.

Then, after completing a short work placement in Sarnia and Chatham, Ont. I was offered a job in Grimshaw, Alta., as the reporter/photographer at the Mile Zero News owned by Mackenzie Report Inc. (check out the website at www.mrnews.ca). It was a big move and I might have been a little crazy to pack up my entire life in my small car and drive across the country, but I can honestly say I’ve received nothing but positive feedback and blessings as a result of my leap of faith.

More than five years later I am now the editor of the Mile Zero News and The Banner Post, married to a wonderful man with whom I have two beautiful boys. 


I wasn’t lying when I said I’ve been blessed as a result of my leap of faith.

In this space you will find entertaining little stories I would normally tell my distant family and friends in person. Also, from time to time I’ll share a news article that has made me think a little deeper and pictures that have made me smile a little bigger.

Please leave comments on things you like. I definitely want to hear from you and write more of the things you want to read!

  1. So- Move to Red Deer, enjoy living in a small city. Join us at Crossroads Church. We’re excited about impacting our community. Journalism sounds impactive.

    1. I would love to move to Red Deer if a job became available. Unfortunately moving without a job is a bit too risky. One day, what I write will have a great impact, that is forever going to be my goal

  2. Ah, I was under the impression you had a job offer in Red Deer on the table. You are right about moving without a job being too risky.
