Laughing with her friends and family, living an active lifestyle (preferably outdoors), cuddling with her forever puppy, exploring the world through cooking, eating and craft beer & cheering loudly as a proud Toronto sports fan!
She was named after a Toronto Blue Jay (guess who?) + her mom's name (Donna)
