I love life and try to enjoy each moment! Yes, we are still on our fertility journey, but we have a fabulous life with my step-daughter Mia, and our two dog’s, Harley and Daffidill. We live in Waterdown, close to hiking trails, so most weekends, you will catch us on a family hike. I am extremely competitive, so playing, or watching sports is a must. Board games are my absolute favourite way to hang out with friends. I have always loved entertaining, so pre-covid, we always had a dinner party or wine and cheese nights going on.  Connecct with Crystal at: www.FertilityBlooms.com
