Rebecca has been blogging since 2009 after the birth of her second child. Just like her children, her blog, A Little Bit of Momsense, has grown over the years. Topics vary, like Rebecca’s life interests, from recipes, to fun activities to do in Ottawa, to family travel and random thoughts about parenting and living life to its fullest. When she isn’t blogging, she’s working with other small business owners to teach them about social media and writing content. She is fueled by coffee and spends part of her day in a fictional world—thanks to television or a book.
