About Me

Thanks for coming by!  My name is Maggie and as you can see in my sidebar, I am a newlywed and who recently moved to Toronto to be with my husband, who is a doctor.  I work part-time in church administration.  Some things I love or feel passionate about:  women's ministry, youth ministry, my family, travel, learning languages, reading books, cats (I probably blog about cats a bit too much...), running, and ice cream.

On this blog, I call my husband Gil.  This is not his real name, as he has asked for that to be omitted.  Why Gil?  If you go back to my first post, you will see that there is a subtle Anne of Green Gables theme to this blog's title, so it seemed fitting to call my husband Gilbert.  Why so much anonymity?  In part this is to protect my husband, who is a very private person.  Our last name is somewhat uncommon, and his first name is also somewhat rare.  I was concerned that his patients would be able to find this blog by googling "last name, doctor, Toronto" and would therefore know unnecessary details about their doctor's personal life.  Since my heart with this blog is to be as open as I can, it seemed to make sense to keep his name (and photo) private.  Thanks for understanding.
