Sometimes you just have to roll with the punches life throws your way. This #WordlessWednesday I am thankful for kids who never let me have a dull moment.

The holidays are around the corner and whether or not you’ll be celebrating Christmas (we don’t at our house), you will not want to miss the amazing deals available in stores. The way I see it, if you don’t take advantage of the things you already use or need when they go on sale, you’re actually doing yourself a disservice (you can just guess how much my husband loves hearing that one)!

It’s no secret that I love hockey. If you follow me on Twitter, this won’t exactly come as a shock to you, especially if the Habs are playing. The reason for my love of hockey is not as much about the game itself as it is about what it does.

Today we remember. We remember our fallen soldiers and we remember each and every one of their sacrifices at home and abroad. This Remembrance Day is a little different, a little more real, a little closer to home given the October 22nd Ottawa Shooting in which Corporal Nathan Cirillo died and the killing of Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent in Quebec two days earlier.

I am SO excited to share some wonderfully amazing news with you all. I’m proud to announce that I have been selected as the official 2015 Ambassador for Chevrolet Canada. It is a brand that I admire and respect greatly for their commitment not only to great vehicles but supporting diversity in its many forms.

With all the pumpkin recipes this time of year, I thought I would do something different; creamy pumpkin soup. I had never heard of it until two years ago when I was blessed with a bounty of pumpkins.

Sometimes a girl’s dreams can come true. Hockey. It’s in our blood. It’s in the water we drink and as Canadians, it’s in our hearts. Some of my earliest memories include my dad and his friends sitting around watching hockey on TV with the fireplace crackling and warm cups of chai steaming on the table. They’d laugh, yell at the television in Urdu/English and debate over how the Habs were playing.

My day as an Ottawa mom while Parliament was under attack.

The day started like any normal Wednesday; by hitting the snooze button three times to finally drag myself out of bed; prying my kids to wake up, prepping breakfast and school lunches as my coffee brewed. I took my sip of coffee and finally woke up then realized how little time was left. I encouraged my kids in a very “motherly manner” to speed up or they’ll be late for school. I had a lunch date with my nephew who was in from out of town and was to meet up with him at ByWard Market before shopping for my daughter’s field trip to Gatineau Park.

Blissdom Canada is an incredible experience that leaves even the wittiest, most creative writers at a loss for words when it comes time to summarize our experience. There are so many components to the blissful experience I recently shared with some 350 other social media influencers, professionals and supporters.

Here is a quick recipe for Apple Salsa that will have you licking your lips and wiping the bowl clean every time. It’s easy to make and very versatile. It pairs wonderfully with grilled or baked fish, chicken, veggies or simple tortilla chips.
