It’s a wonderful Life…to be lived!

pstreet-bannerContributed by Sarah Cook- Publisher. As I write this, on 11/18/18 – I’m currently ‘wrapping up’ a wonderful week of ‘momentous birthday celebrations’ – my thoughts, now drift to celebrations of another kind… “The Holidays”.
I am so very grateful for all the wonderful friends, family and colleagues I have in my life.  There is now a heightened appreciation for all these resources, that I may have perhaps, subconsciously, unappreciated in my youth.   I am excited to look ahead to 2019, my determination is crystal clear.
I’m not quite ready for ‘New Years resolutions’ yet, but I will resolve to this- I will shop local, I will eat local, and entertain local as much as possible this year, as I always do.  I will buy art, books & wonderful treats from my colleagues, and I dare say ‘friends’ on Parliament St. and Cabbagetown.
We all have so much to be grateful for…whether it’s the food on our plate, the heat in our hearth, or the love of friends and family that we are all so blessed to have.   I believe in supporting independent entrepreneurs and artisans of all kinds, they are our future.   So, while you’re on your winter walk through our beautiful Cabbagetown streets in the snow, on your way to go tobogganing with your kids, or enroute to visit with friends (you’ll need to pick up that holiday hostess gift), think of your local merchants who need your support to put some coal in their fires (and stockings) this year.
HAPPY HOLIDAYS FROM THE PARLIAMENT ST. NEWS
