Welcome to Westport: Kelly-Anne Maddox takes her family on a (delicious) cottage staycation

Kelly-Anne Maddox relocated to Ottawa from BC in 2010 and is busy being a mom to her one-year old daughter.

My Montreal Road: Kelly-Anne goes exploring

Kelly-Anne Maddox relocated to Ottawa from BC in 2010 and is busy being a mom to her one-year old daughter.

Kelly-Anne Maddox takes her family to the National Gallery of Canada’s giftshop

From British Columbia to Ottawa: Kelly-Anne Maddox becomes a Local Tourist

Kelly-Anne Maddox relocated to Ottawa from British Columbia in 2010 and is busy being a mom to her one-year old daughter. I’m not the sort of person who adapts well to change.
