Some of my favourite things from 2023:
Song - You Should Probably Leave by Chris Stapleton
Movie - Mission Impossible - Dead Reckoning
TV Show - The Bear
Book - Demon Copperhead by Barbara Kingsolver
Meal - Dinner at Carbone in Miami. Everything was perfection.
New Clothing - Athleta Tank Tops
Toronto Moment - Checking out the new renovations at the Skydome (Rogers Centre) where the Blue Jays play. The new areas are so cool and really enhance the ballpark experience.
House Thing - Of all of the renovations we did, it's pretty hard to choose one thing, but I think it's our bathroom. However not sharing photos yet, I need to organize the "unveiling" post.
Restaurant - Walrus Pub and Beer Hall
E Thing - E is in Grade 7 this year and he has found a nice group of friends. We finally got him his own phone and it has been a nice way for him to mature and keep in touch with his friends, and us. He still needs some prompting to make non-video game plans, but he's getting there!
Q Thing - Q walks to school with E every day. I think he likes this independence and seeing the other kids on his way to school. He's only in Grade 2 but getting to walk without a parent is a big deal to him.
Dave Thing - Dave changed jobs, in the same space, but new company. As usual he is well-liked by his new colleagues and he enjoyed a couple of work trips to Florida and Vegas in the fall.
Memories - Jay Peak skiing in a blizzard, and watching the parade at Magic Kingdom
