Hi, I am Mariya!

It’s not a Mariah, its Maria with a ‘Y’. 

I live in Mississauga, Ontario with my husband and an adorable daughter. I became a mom in the spring of 2015. In 2016 I left my full time job to become a stay at home mom. It has been a rough transition. I found that blogging helps me cope with day to day frustrations. It also gives me a pleasure of sharing day to day joys. You can read more about my choice to stay home with my daughter here

While taking care of my daughter, I also turned my hobby into a business and started my own photography service: www.mariyakadar.com

I am Ukrainian and I came to Canada in my early teens. I graduated from University of Toronto with a Commerce degree and a Masters in Industrial Relations. I speak Ukrainian, Russian, and English. Well, now days, I mostly speak English. 

I met my hubby in school when we both were studying towards our commerce undergrad. It was an immediate connection and we have been inseparable since. We moved in together just over a year after we met and it was the best decision we have ever made. We grew and matured together which made us understand each other.

My baby girl is the most important person in my life (my hubby is now taking second place – sorry, dear). She is little but has tons of character. She is a very happy, determined, and independent baby. The independent part makes me a bit sad, but proud. She makes instant connections with people around her and makes everyone in the room smile. I hope she never changes.

If you have any questions about my blog or me, please feel free to contact me. I am looking forward to sharing some exiting information with you.

Thank you

Mariya
