Since my friend Meagan told me to write a blog -apparently my life is interesting, quirky, funny, or informative enough to hold someone’s attention for longer than two seconds – I have decided to bow to the peer pressure and write!
For those who know me, you can skip this part; for those who don’t, strangers are friends I haven’t met yet. I am 30 years old this year, married, and live in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, with my husband, three cats and a guide dog named Jenny. I work in customer relations, and have many varied interests – from baking to making music, from playing sports to reading. My husband tells me I drink too much coffee and eat too much chocolate, and I know that on many subjects I can be like a dog with a bone – determined and persistent. My opinions can be strong, but I love intelligent discussions that make me think.
I hope this blog will give you a chance to get to know me and what it can be like to be visually impaired in the 2000s – at least in my little corner of the world. Perhaps I will talk a lot – or too much – about Jenny and the ups and downs of working a guide dog, but there are many other topics that will be covered on this blog, primarily traveling both locally and abroad.
Thanks for reading!
