National News?

Monday, September 16, 2013

Last week created a bit of buzz of the 15 minutes of fame variety for my husband and me. Canada's national newspaper, The Globe and Mail, did a half page article on us for its "How They Lost It" feature.

While I had hoped a little more about our maintenance journey would have been mentioned (not really in keeping with the name of the feature I realize), it was still fun to have our story read far and wide and to hear from people all over the country that they had seen it.

Here's the link if you want to check us out for yourselves!
