How I Am Making Forty Fabulous

Hello, Readers!

I’m Reese and welcome to Reese Speaks.

Who is Reese Speaks, you ask? Well, my name is actually Lian, but one of my nicknames is a short form of my middle name, Reese I’m a woman who likes to share what’s on her mind, sharing my experiences and hobbies, or give my opinion on certain topics.

Here is my back story:

I was born in Toronto, Ontario (and still love it), but now have found a new home in Canada’s nation’s capital of Ottawa. I graduated with an Honours Degree in Political Science from Carleton University and love working in the field of Social Media. I am the proud mother of three kids (one about to go to college, the other two are in elementary school) whom I like to refer to as the “Bosses” as they all have their own strong personalities and know what they want for themselves.

What Amuses Me?

  • I can never put down a good book.
  • I love playing and watching sports when I can.
  • Shopping is a passion of mine I’m always on the hunt for what’s new in fashion, beauty and gadgets.
  • I enjoy trying new experiences, traveling or accomplishing new challenges put in front of me.
  • I’m a huge Christmasaholoic!ย  It’s my favourite time of the year, even with the cold weather!
  • Photography is a new hobby of mine. I don’t pretend to be a pro at this, but I try to capture my experiences this way, as well as through this blog.

Since I have stumbled into the world of blogging, I try to do it whenever I can.ย  Motherhood is my top priority, but it is not the only thing that defines who I am.ย  Since I was a child, I have always enjoyed writing, so Reese Speaks gives me the opportunity to write about anything I want without restriction.
