I’ve recently had a Canadian visitor for a few weeks, and we got up to lots of fun travelling, exploring, wine tasting, and learning some arts and crafts.  It was a great way to connect and have some fun while she was in town, especially because she is very creative; a natural artist who is studying art in school.  I really admire her creativity.  I’ve always been in awe..read more
