April 11, 2013


It was so cool to have my National Geographic Traveler mag arrive in the mail and see that it featured Toronto. Even better was looking at the pictures they chose, including a big, beautiful mural by Mom's, and recognizing, yes, that's my city! I can't wait to dive in and read more about where we locals go! (I know they say Queen West, Kensington, Leslieville, Chinatown and Gerrard Bazaar. They seemed to have gotten the idea of "neighboourhood" right!)


Coffee shop seat success! Wow. I was this close to giving up my weekly journalling date with myself after 3 pass by's over 2 days at my local coffee shop. But, fourth time lucky and I was so happy to get a seat I didn't care that it was a bit of an odd one (facing out right to the door and the line), but it was MINE! YAY! I always feel better when I journal an I really needed the time to do it. So, success!!

Persistence for the win!!

And so cool Jamie that the mag not only featured Toronto, but got it right! That's so cool. I don't know what The Gerard Bizarre is, but that's one of the great things about the T-Dot is that there are always new things to explore :)
