Milestones, Montreal & Making The Most Out of Life…Bring on 43!

It was my birthday yesterday. I turned 43. If you had asked me a year ago if I am where I thought I would be at 43 I would have said “Hell Yes!” Two healthy kids, a steady job, a cozy home, no serious debt and money being saved monthly into the RRSP! My trajectory on the outside was looking …
