Welcome Cousin Yun & November

3 Nov 2016 – From Toronto/Canada

img_2352Mon: no rest for the weary. Lunched with Cynthia, Linda’s cousin before she leaves back to Edmonton/Canada. Met with Lawrence at the airport to see him off and to pick up a bottle of bubbles that he could not take with him without checked-in luggage.

Looking forward to sample this bottle of Champagne Roses de Jeanne, where each wine is from a single grape variety, vineyard and vintage.

The best day of your life is the one on which you decide your life is your own. No apologies or excuses. No one to lean on, rely on, or blame. The gift is yours – it is an amazing journey – and you alone are responsible for the quality of it. This is the day your life really begins ― Bob Moawad
