Hi! We're Lin (right) and Rebecca. A mom and daughter duo from Toronto, ON, Canada, we started this blog to explore all things travel, fashion and family. We're mental health experts who run a childhood anxiety support group, The Selectively Silent Child (which Lin founded in 1999), and we can't wait to extend that expertise and passion to helping women like us live their best lives.
A little about us individually:
Hello! I'm Lin. I'm a kindergarten teacher (R.E.C.E.) and parenting consultant. I love my job because I get to make a positive change in the lives of my students every day. I also have a passion for reading, travel and style, and look forward to The Teacher and The Traveller being an outlet for these interests, as well as an opportunity to help and connect with women in my city and beyond. I collect trolls and sock monkeys, am a huge fan of Hugh Laurie and think cheese bread is both evil and the best food in the world.
Hi! I'm Rebecca. I am a writer and social media strategist (and pseudo digital nomad). I'm going to visit all 13 Canadian provinces and territories and all 50 American states before my 25th birthday (3 October 2016). I adore all aspects of travel-- the journey, the culture, the accents, the adventure... and of course, the food. I'd love to eat my way around the globe: I have to eat a soft pretzel every time I'm in New York City, mange poutine souvent and can't wait to visit Finland for some pulla and piirakka. In addition to travel, nothing makes me happier than making someone's life beautiful-- whether that's literal, through fashion and beauty, DIY and fab home decor, or on an emotional level, through friendship and helping her embrace radical self love.
