I’ve been a vivacious Canadian/Prairie girl since birth; I’m proud of my heritage and I love to eat anything that has flavour. After years of studying Criminology, life decided to take me on another route – working with kids. My students remind me what it is like to be young again and to stop and smell the roses. It truly is the greatest gift that one could be given. I am now perusing a new career path – a high school history teacher, and while it is completely different from Criminology, I can still have the ability to change a life and sometimes that is all a child needs – just one person to make that difference.
I love to cook and bake, and in my spare time, I try to whip up tasty noshes that my family can enjoy. I am the happiest in the summer when the sun shines bright and the warm weather has replaced the bitter cold winter temperatures. Summer is also the start of many road trips to the U.S., which I frequently take; traveling is my getaway from this crazy thing called life. If it’s for a week or just the weekend, I love loading up the car and taking off.
I blog to express my feelings and share ideas; my brain is constantly on overdrive and sometimes it is hard to keep the thoughts tucked away in there. I’m overly opinionated and no matter how far fetched it might be, it is my opinion. I’ve never been able to shut up, which can sometimes be a good thing.
Occasionally I write about dining, shopping, and things to do while in Grand Forks, North Dakota, for the Greater Grand Forks Convention and Visitors Bureau. If you would like to collaborate and would like to have me write about things to do and see while in your area, please leave a comment here or email me thisnorthernbelle (at) gmail dot com.
