My parents are the best!

. They are. I’ll never cease to be amazed that two such incredible human beings got to meet, fall in love, and give me the chance of being their daughter for the rest of our respective lives. Mom and Dad are insanely supportive, no matter what I do (or try to), and sometimes, I was…… Continue reading My parents are the best!

A night in Odessa…

. I must be honest, three weeks ago, I didn’t have a clue where Odessa was. I knew it was a city, and that it probably was on some coast, somewhere. Because one of the biggest fish and seafood markets in Montréal is called Odessa. But for some reason, if I had had to guess,…… Continue reading A night in Odessa…

Win-win…

. A couple of weeks back, I mentionned a man that walks up my street every Monday, around 7PM. Every week, he pushes a shopping cart around the neighbourhood. A cart filled with garbage bags, and I guessed that he was checking the surounding parks’ trash cans for empty bottles he could get a refund…… Continue reading Win-win…

Shockwave…

This morning I woke up to a short, yet surprisingly intense trembling of the earth. It might have been just an earthquake, but for Chéri and I, it was a shockwave announcing a tragedy. Chéri was getting ready to work, and I still lay in bed, contemplating the day off in front of me. My mother asks…… Continue reading Shockwave…

    And I am blaming my dear blogger friend Brutus for it.  I first tried the NYC Midnight 250-word challenge, last year… And I failed. Then I tried the longest version, and also failed to make it to round two. And here I am, trying once more. This time, it is a 100-word piece of fiction,…… Continue reading Another challenge…

Between Bloggers – All for one!

Last weekend, I threw a last minute Meet & Greet Party. First and foremost, I’d like to thank all the lovely people that stopped by and made the party a success! It was a lot of fun, and though I hadn’t forgotten, it reminded me of something important. Blogging isn’t just about publishing content. If you…… Continue reading Between Bloggers – All for one!

Between bloggers – This one’s for Rob…

And for anybody who might need it… After all, we’re like a big family here, and it is always a pleasure to help, when I can. So recently, my very charming friend, Rob from Friends without borders asked me how to access the ”Classic” editing mode, to create new posts. I promised to send him a…… Continue reading Between bloggers – This one’s for Rob…

Need ideas? How about… (March 26th FFF)

I was invited (well, not personally, but still…) to join the Fandango’s Friday Flashback! Fandango scrolls back, every Friday, and gives a second chance to a post he had published on the same date, years before. I thought it was a great way to remember some of the stuff I did a while back, and I…… Continue reading Need ideas? How about… (March 26th FFF)
