I am a food, exercise and travel enthusiast. I’m also a retired nurse with a Masters of Science in Adult Health Nursing.
When I retired from nursing to concentrate on my family I made a decision to pursue my passions and enter my personal renaissance years. I spent a few sabaatical years doting on my husband, our son and family and friends at large as well as taking cooking classes, traveling, studying French and reading like a madwoman. Those were blissful times. In 2006 I started my company Calgary Food Tours Inc. as a natural extension of my life of food, fun and adventure. It is one way for me to share my passions locally.
My business if very foodcentric but my life is very well-rounded. I started this blog because I believe the greatest joy in life comes with a balanced outlook. I do indeed savour food but I honour the life wisdom my 20 plus years as a nurse taught me. That career gave me the gift of perspective that allows me to savour life as well. This blog allows me to share all my passions past and present via a far-reaching medium.
I love to write and I hope by sharing information and stories about the great ideas, foods, recipes, markets, farmers, chefs, homecooks along with some of my experiences and insights from my previous career as a nurse I can help others increase the joy in their lives.
It is my greatest desire to help others Savour Food and Savour Life. I truly believe you can never have too much fun and you can never be too aware or too grateful of what a gift it is to be alive each day.
So along with a little food, fun and adventure my hope is that you will Savour Food and Savour Life.
All the best,
