I started my first blog in 2006 when I moved to Barcelona for a year. My main objective at the time was to have a place where I could write about my life in Barcelona, post some pictures, so that friends and family scattered around the world could know about how I was doing. I didn’t want to be clogging anyone’s mailboxes with emails. I also wanted to have a record of what I knew was going to be an interesting year. I didn’t read too many blogs at the time and was amazed how quickly I not only enjoyed writing my blog but how the act of writing a blog led me to read other blogs. I was also amazed at how many people I met through my blog.
When I moved back to Toronto in 2007, I kept blogging and renamed the blog Building Bridges since it best captured my mood and who I was. Like everyone else who was blogging back then, I slowly stopped blogging and switched much of my musings to Facebook. Four years ago I started knitting and have wanted to have more of a space in which to record my journey through the world of yarn, knitting, and patterns. Something I could go back to and share with others. I also wanted a place where I could chronicle my journeys through food and coffee, one of my passions. This site is a result of that.
