Labour Day weekend usually marks the unofficial end of summer here, especially for students starting a new school year. It seems I'm always trying to squeeze in the last bit of summer before the cool nights of Autumn arrive. This weekend, I headed to the Alice Cooper/Deep Purple concert with my dad (amazing show!), got rained out at the CNE with my girlfriends, and visited Artfest at the Distillery District with two old school friends.Read More
I mentioned in my last post that this summer has overall been a rainier, dreary one. Sure, we had some beautiful days in there - but it always seemed like it was the days when I was stuck at work!

This morning I woke up to not one, but 3 text messages from some of my closest girlfriends. One was telling a funny story, the other was trying to arrange plans together, and the other was simply wishing a Happy Friday. I actually woke up smiling - and I'm telling you: that rarely happens in the mornings! It made me realize just how lucky I am to have these people in my life, and how much they really are there, even if we all get busier these days. I decided to round up 5 basic characteristics that I think contribute to a beautiful friendship!:Read More
