A Noteworthy Birthday!

Hello Beautiful People!

This year’s birthday was pretty special for me, I ended a decade of an amazing journey of true womanhood. Overall, life has been good! I have had to make a lot of lemonades with the lemons life served, but I was blessed in that decade, I accomplished so much, and more importantly, I did not have to spend one day in a hospital bed.

So, I celebrated the beauty of life, the hope of a bright future, the discovery of the fountain of youth and the blessing of good health with my husband, Kelvin; our birthdays are only two days a part. We went high in the skies of Toronto, which is symbolic of how we intend to soar in the next decade of our lives.

We dined at Canoe Restaurant, located on the 54th floor of the TD Bank Tower, at               66 Wellington Street West, just west of Bay Street on the north side. We had a splendid time! Please take a moment enjoy our birthday experience with us. Bon Appetit!
