My name is Sarah Hop. I live in Calgary Alberta, Canada, with my husband, 10 month old daughter and our 'old man' cat. Up until a year ago, I was a working opera singer in New York city, but my profession is currently on hold as I figure out how to be both a performer and a mother. Aside from being heavily involved in all things music, my husband and I love to be outdoors and discover new neighborhood haunts. These days, however, our lives seem to be dominated by a rapidly changing baby girl and the rehabilitation of our newly purchased heritage home. It is 110 years old, so every seemingly simple renovation quickly becomes more complicated than we imagined!
