    It's a good time to sit and reflect on what is important to us during these unsettling times. We all have different ideas of what makes us happy, and to me it's family. My family keeps me grounded when everything around us is scary and so uncertain.

    It's easy to enjoy life in Ottawa. Small things like the smell of fresh blooming flowers make me happy now. I pay attention to the sounds the birds make, the way the water sounds flowing through the creek, and how my children's laughter makes my heart happy. Let's remember to look at the small things around us. There is much to be thankful for in this town. Let's be thankful that we are here to experience the beauty of nature.

    What a nice and refreshing view as I drive around the town of Ottawa. The trees have bloomed so beautifully this year. I find that the beautiful colors on trees and bushes are so refreshing to see and helps bring a smile to my face! After such a long, dark winter, it is wonderful to see that we are granted another spring with fabulous color and light! As the days grow longer, we are outside more into the evening watching our kids play. I like to just take a moment to slow down and actually enjoy the view. These views are given to me, and I cherish each and every one!

    Christmas time is special for so many different reasons. I enjoy gathering my Christmas decorations and having my children help me decorate the tree. I have some very special ornaments that have been given to me over the years from grandparents. These ornaments are very special to me and I will treasure them forever. I have also made this a tradition with my children over the last few years. I like to go downtown in Ottawa to the local stores to find that very special ornament for each of my three children. I purchase ornaments each year and have my children open them on Christmas day. That way, next year they will be able to place it on the tree .I like to personalize the ornaments to my children's interests and personalities. I have my oldest who is into gaming, my middle child is into sports and my youngest is into the outdoors.
    My hope for the future is that my children will take these ornaments with them when they decide to leave our home and create new memories with their families.

    Easter eggs are hidden all around Forrest Park as the kids anxiously wait for the whistle to blow so that they can start hunting! Children everywhere, dressed in their jackets as it is a chilly day. Smiles and screams as the whistle blows and the hunt is on. Children running with their Easter baskets in hand, scooping up as many eggs as they can.

    After all of the eggs are gathered the children run to their parents, and show off their finds and start counting their eggs. Candy filled eggs are an exciting way to start the day at the park.
    What a glorious day watching families smile and enjoy their community and fellow neighbors.

    Stay in town to ice skate. Yes, you heard me right, ice skating is now ready for our community at Forest Park. The city of Ottawa created a place for young and old alike to go enjoy a winter favorite. This is definitely something you would want to check out for a fun outdoor adventure.
    I for one have never been ice skating, but it is something that I have always wanted to try. So, maybe I will see you at Forest Park at the newly created ice skating ring.
