About Me

People always tell me I should write a book. My answer is pretty much always the same: no one would believe me.

I was lucky enough to be on Trading Spaces, I am the mother of 2 beautiful girls adopted from China, I have an award-winning store and I have been a blogger since the dawn of time. All good things.
Oh, and my husband has Cystic Fibrosis, and I turned out to be a carrier. And be barren. My mom died of breast cancer. My husband got a double lung transplant…. not enough for you yet?

Well, I was diagnosed with breast cancer.

No matter how fast I run (which is not fast at all) I can’t seem to get away from the cloud of doom over my head.survivorshootforblog

    Hello Virginia,
    I know you’ve done media interviews about your store and your business (award-winning business), but how do you feel talking about your blog on CTV?

    think about it, and call me: 514-495-6458 (no rush) maybe we could meet at your store and talk about your life and challenges….and we need to take a photo of our short-hair-dos together!

    no pressure, only good vibes!

    Angela from Fluid Pudding sent me over here! I applaud your spirit, your writing, and your beauty despite it all! (please note, my site squishybags has nothing to do with porn, or boobs, it is my homage to my handbag addiction and my cathartic cartooning outlet).
