Gurpreet fell in love, got married, had a darling baby girl, and is now rocking another pregnant belly. She’s more brown than blonde with blue eyes but can still appreciate hockey (kind of) and beer (not really).

She is self-employed, self-motivated, self-declared neurotic, and thankfully, self-aware. Her cooking skills are subpar at best but her cleaning skills would win gold at the Olympics if that were a sport. Which it really sorta should be considering how hard some stains can be (grape juice, I’m looking at you) to get out of a pristine white chair. 

Gurpreet once received a Citizen of Distinction medal from the Queen of England and she likes to casually throw that into any conversation quite randomly. She's working on somehow getting a royal title next. She is Indo-Canadian, which really means nothing to most Canadians and usually means Mexican to most Americans.

She is basically just trying to manage her life as best she can, one catastrophe at a time. She plans to one day conquer the world but for right now, she’d settle for winning the war against diapers and morning sickness. Bollywood Babies promises to take you along for the ride and maybe we can all figure it out together.

That One Month When I Threw Out 496 Things

There's happiness in getting rid of "stuff."

One month a year, my husband and I take stock of what is in our house and then pretty much get rid of it. Not everything, but a lot of stuff.

My husband is a minimalist. We don’t have picture frames on side tables or centerpieces in the dining room, and most surfaces are free of “stuff” unless it’s there for a purpose. I was never a messy person, but I certainly had “things” around my house… and then I met my husband and realized the happiness that comes from clearing your home of clutter.
