A Weekend Away Fit For A King or Two

It’s the month of May and I am sitting down to write another chapter in the book I am working on, looking out the window wishing the sunshine would come back. In the city of Toronto, we have had what I can only describe as the most tenacious of winters and it just won’t seem to go away. That being said, with my new schedule and focus on the things I am working towards in my life, I get excited about weekends again. Those two beautiful days (or even better, three for a long weekend!) hold so much possibility and recently I had the pleasure of experiencing a pretty spectacular one that I would love to tell you a bit more about.

My therapist laughs when I tell her I talk about her on the blog, but I mean it as the biggest form of flattery. She’s changed my life in so many ways!

Volvo Canada Is About To Change The Game

Today I am lucky enough to be attending several events around the city, and it makes me smile to know that I can share it with you all. But it also makes me remember how much I love driving and how I do miss it in the city of Toronto. Thankfully the first event of the day is with Volvo Canada to celebrate the launch of the evolution of car ownership by launching CARE BY VOLVO™ in Canada. “With technology changing the very nature of what it means to own a car, Volvo is embracing a new, streamlined approach to car ownership by offering its first subscription-based program.” Continue reading “Volvo Canada Is About To Change The Game”
