about kristin

My life in a nutshell:
  • I'm a Canadian girl, born and raised
  • After dating for five years, I married my wonderful husband in 2006
  • Our wedding flowers were mango calla lilies, and they looked beautiful with our teal, black and silver colour scheme!
  • In 2008 we welcomed our first beautiful baby girl, Lady M
  • In 2011 we welcomed double trouble with our 2nd gorgeous little girl, Lady A
  • I currently have degrees in English and Adult Education, and am nearly through my Master of Education
  • While completing my first degree I studied abroad in Sweden, and that experience impacted me greatly; my studies focus primarily on the benefits of international study 
  • When I'm not being a mum, working full-time, teaching, or studying for school, spending time with family and friends makes me a very happy girl.
I also love:
  • Going to the gym - lately I venture there at 5am, since that's the only time of day I can find an hour, and I never mind when my alarm goes off at 4:50am
  • Reading - fiction, non-fiction, doesn't matter! Usually it's just a nice departure from the many articles and books I'm reading for school
  • Crocheting - and buying copious amounts of yarn!

Mango Calla Lily is my space to share stories and hopefully put a smile on your face. Have a look around, and stay a while!
