Favourite thing to do on the weekend?
Spending every second I can with my 3 beautiful school age boys. Getting outside, going to parks and playing with them, whether it’s tobogganing, playing hockey & soccer, skating, going to the movies or AGO, making art and baking…the list goes on. I enjoy running, snowboarding, going to the gym and hanging out with my husband and friends.
