The first thing I'd like to mention is Square Lemon. If you follow me on my other social media channels, you might have heard me mention it. In March, after a few casual meetings, me and four other awesome ladies founded Square Lemon, an artistic non-profit aimed at celebrating local artists, makers and crafters in Ottawa. We organize craft markets, workshops, as well as private events. It's been a lot of work, but so fun! Square Lemon has really pushed me out of my comfort zone. Melanie from 1 year ago would have been far too shy to pursue this kind of venture. I'm thrilled with everything we've accomplished so far! Check out our website if you want to learn more here.
I just turned 29 on Sunday and spent the weekend relaxing in Quebec City with my best girlfriends. Looking back to the Melanie of 1 year ago, I'm proud to say I'm now a much more confident and zen version of myself.
Thanks for reading friends. Here's to many more accomplishments! xo
