Connections, Networking and LinkedIn

Every time I go to the LinkedIn page "people you might know",  I look at the pictures wondering how I know the person and realize that I don't know him/her; it is just that I have seen his/her photo so many times on this page that I feel I should know them and wonder what would happen if I sent an invitation.

What's important?

While traveling, I am learning that being there for your family is just as important as having a good time and that you can truly only have a good time when your whole family (those traveling with you) feel at ease.

A little TLC goes a long way...

In between loads of laundry, a quick grocery shop and making chili for Superbowl Sunday, I was called an "awesome mom" because I made Sylvie baked donuts to have breakfast this week with all the fresh berries in the house because she said she wanted to eat yogurt, berries and granola for breakfast to be healthy which lasted a few days before she got bored.
