Three Things You May Not Know About Me That Make Me Who I am Today

Over the span of eight years, you would assume that I have shared (and probably overshared) everything you could possibly imagine about who I am. The fun part about the blog is that it has grown and evolved, changed and changed again with me as I did the same. All these years later, I still get excited to share intimate moments and memories to help you understand me as a person. Now a husband, soon to be a Dad in the coming years, and always avidly travelling with you in tow on social media, this blog post is a love letter of sorts to three things you may not know yet that make me who I am today.

Moments That Make Me Smile

Following on our adventures via Instagram – specifically Instagram stories – is a really good way to see how busy we are but also how much fun we have doing what we do best. At the end of the day, building #DoTheDaniel has taken me five years of blood, sweat and tears. But amid all of those things, there has been so much more laughter, love & life. December is always a bit of an introspective month for me where I start to look back on the lessons I have learnt over the year in order to ensure I go into the new year as the best version of myself. This past weekend I had the pleasure of heading home to Montreal with BELVEDERE, and it was one of my favourite experiences of the year. A quick in-and-out that allowed me the opportunity to connect with incredible people, eat some incredible food, dance like no one was watching, and laugh more than I have in a very long time. There is something to be said about experiences and moments like that, even if they are brief, and I’m happy for the chance to share it with you all. Continue reading “Moments That Make Me Smile”

It’s Not Too Late To Make It Happen

It’s a chilly weekend in October and while I bundle up at the office, knowing full well it’s only going to get colder over the next few months, my mind is on travel and destinations I have yet to explore in this world. While the majority of Canadians will be looking to head south (as you should), I am more of the mind that I want to break that habit and go somewhere new. There has been a lot of new in my life this year, and a lot of change. So why would I not take the opportunity to book my first solo trip for myself to a destination that I’ve never considered? It’s not too late to make it happen, and you already know we love exploring destinations with Air Canada!  Continue reading “It’s Not Too Late To Make It Happen”

Changing The Way Things Are Framed

As of late you’ll realize that I have gone all kinds of introspective. Sometimes when life gives you a good shake and you need to put things back together, that can happen. But it also seems as though a lot of my friends are feeling this way too. I’m not 100% sure what happened to 2018 – the year we all said “would be different” – but it’s been a doozy. Ups and downs are always going to be a part of this beautiful chaos we call life, and sometimes I have to remind myself that I can only control my reaction to it all. Lately I have been trying my best to focus on the beautiful moments, people, and memories that have led me to where I am today. And I have been trying my very best to change the way I frame things.  Continue reading “Changing The Way Things Are Framed”
