Canada Goose is known as the premier winter brand for their ultra-warm and fashionable parkas and coats. But did you know that they make spring jackets as well? I sure didn’t until I got my Canada Goose Timber technical shell jacket (in the brilliant pink Torch in case you were wondering). It’s a super stylish coat. The cuffs are tapered and it has a longer back for cover. The zippers and seams are all waterproof with ventilation on the sides for when things get too humid.

While it’s unfortunate that we don’t root for the same team (He’s a Leafs fan.

This Mother’s Day will be my first one without my mom here to share and celebrate it with. I have an immense swirl of emotions around this as I go from highs to lows. I am sad that she is no longer here to enjoy this day with her family.
