A New Challenge!

Posted by Ian On June 5, 2009

I'm pleased to announce that I have started my own little company - mare ad mare, which is latin for 'sea to sea' and part of the Canadian motto (check the cover of your new passports). Our goal will be to build a fresh new brand of clothing for Canadian (and wannabe Canadian) girls. I will be using this blog, much as I have in the past - to continue showing people around the globe (over 50 countries now!) what it's like to be a Canadian girl, tracing the footsteps of our 3 girls as we explore more of this great place we call home.

JUMP IN!

Fall shirt for Canadian girls

A big pile of leaves for you here! As a Canadian summer turns to fall, the leaves change colours and then fall off the trees. Kids rake them up and play! So go on, Jump into Fall with this Orange T. Check www.mareadmare.ca for more details. All designs copyright of mare ad mare.

How many times have you had to tell someone that it's not always cold here? Well, sometimes it is cold - but to make your point, grab this little winter blue T and let them know that it's not just snow and ice up here all the time! Check www.mareadmare.ca for more details.

So I got a little taste of what my next line of work might be...

With Sara working, and me not so much - I was put in charge of dinner last night! And before we go any further down this path (cuz I can feel the comments coming already) just want to be clear in saying that I enjoy cooking. But Sara likes to cook, and doesn't like me to cook - unless it involves the grill...so there.

Anyways - I climbed into the freezer - to see what we had, many frozen meats that I wasn't exactly sure what they were - and then found some chicken legs.
Went online to find something interesting to make - and found this recipe for Firecracker Fried Chicken Drumsticks.

I gotta say - TASTY! The whole family enjoyed it - really they did... and I did a pretty decent job of cooking it up. Even made a salad to go with it.

Check this out - it's like looking in the mirror!



I dunno - I could get use to this... ;-)

    Of course - Ray and I spent a hellacious 3 weeks in Suzhou finishing off a project... 14 hour days, we worked 16 of the last 17 days.
    But we got it done!

    About Me

    My photo
    It's not about the money you make, the toys you have, the clothes you wear - it's about the life experiences you go through, the challenges you face and the stories you tell... Having just moved back to Canada (after almost 8 years in the U.S and Germany), we have lots to show our girls and our friends around the world about Canada. We're going to be telling our stories, hope you enjoy our adventures. Mare ad Mare means 'sea to sea' and we want to show the world, from Sea to Sea - this is what it's like to be a Canadian Girl!
