I am Vi, a 40 something living in Toronto and taking care of two kids while trying to be fit, fabulous, smart, interesting, self-loving, and plus sized. Not an easy task.
I used to have a glamorous job working in book publishing, meeting authors, going to parties, and black tie awards events but I gave it all up after my second son was born. Monkey is now 7, Mini Me is 10, and I would be lying if I said I didn’t miss some aspects of my old life, but I can’t say that I regret my decision to leave it.
My wonderful partner Muppet and I have been together for 16 years now. I call him my husband, although we never officially made the trip down the aisle. We have been called “The most married unmarried couple I know,” by some of our friends. We have our bumpy times, but we respect each other, and that’s what gets us through.
I have been working from home for the last few years and have finally found my groove doing Content Management for a website, which allows me to flex my writing muscles for the first time in years. Thus the birth of this blog. I feel like I finally have something to say and I want to find my voice. I hope you’ll take this journey with me.
