Moved to Kelowna in 1980.
I might look normal but believe me, I talk to animals and wait for them to reply.

No good story ever started with; "So i stayed home."

Summer of 1980 I drove from Stanley park to St John’s on my first solo long distance drive. In that very long drive I was able to place money into a kfc bucket of another BC’er in eastern Ontario.

Keeping up with a 5 & 2 yr. old while working full-time in the corporate world and running my own bakery/catering business after hours and on the weekends. Plus administrative work for hubby's business.
Dance as if no one's watching, sing as if no one's listening, and live everyday as if it were your last.

Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain.

Riding my bike, building a tree fort behind my parent's place, catching frogs, Saturday morning cartoons with a big bowl of Honey Comb cereal (they seem so much smaller now lol), swimming at the rec centre Saturday nights, dreaming of a successful life and career.
