Closing the Book on 30

Now it’s time to move forward.

To close the last chapter on my 30’s I decided to spend the day before my birthday hanging out in Toronto. Here’s how it looked.

It started off with breakfast at the Coach House on Yonge Street. I love steak & eggs with a newspaper for breakfast. There is no better start to the day.
Took the subway down to Toronto’s harbourfront… I really enjoy it down there.
A little thinking. A little relaxing.
Then I found the perfect spot to think about the future…
Reflecting on a decade requires a certain number of cold drinks…
…and that number is two. Here is my trusty note-book. I’ve written my goals and plans in this book since my 29th birthday. I was thinking about buying a new one to start my 40’s. But this one really shows me how far I’ve come. It’s fun to flip through the pages and reminisce.
Walking back home I’m reminded how much I love Toronto. This is a great city.
The Nightcap: Ending a special day with a special wine. I love the Caymus Cab. Coincidentally, Caymus Vineyards was also born in 1972.

So there it is, the last day of my 30’s. As you can see, I spent the day by myself reflecting, setting goals and planning.

My conclusion? I’m glad it’s over and I’m ready to move forward now.

I think the blog posts going forward will reflect that.

Hello 40!
