Halloween 2013: Three Blind Mice

I put together a Halloween Party inviting high school friends, friends from university and friends from salsa class. One of my goals for 2013 were to meet new people. We had decided to dress up and go to a Pub Crawl, my first in downtown Toronto.

A New Outlook

I was reading through "Awaken the Giant Within" by Anthony Robbins on my Amazon Kindle. I completed an exercise called "Building your Identity" where you list characteristics you wish to possess, examples of individuals who exemplify those characteristics, and what you practical steps and activities you would have to do and experiences you'd have to have in order to achieve those characteristics.

There were a couple of things on my (not so exhaustive list). I've gone from conservative, sheltered, geeky high school girl, to a 20-something trying to find my own way.

Things on my wish list of characteristics include:

  • being healthier physically and emotionally
  • be beautiful inside and out
  • being more adventurous
  • having more energy and vitality
  • travel
  • being savvy with homemaking (cooking, home organization, home decor, etc.)
There are many people both in my personal and professional life, as well as more well known individuals who exemplify these different characteristics. 

I hope to use this blog as a tool to achieving my different goals and chronicle my journey.

Toronto Travel: Leslie Spit

So its been two months since I've moved into my downtown Toronto Condo and I've had the wonderful opportunity of bicycling through to Leslie Street Spit, a man made headland that extends into Lake Ontario.

The last time I biked was for a fun bachelorette wine tour at Niagara-on-the-Lake. So I believe I was ready for the 3-4 hour bike ride from Harbourfront to Leslie Street Spit.

Barrie Roads

This shoot took place in Barrie and was very unexpected. I was picking up Charlie and bringing him home from a rabbitry in Barrie. We saw this empty paved road and decided to take pictures. It was beautiful too (at sunset).
