Happy Holidays !

The hustle and bustle of this holiday season left me with no time at all to update this blog.

The second week of December comes so fast with snowstorms that sent us blanketed with 30 cm of snow and causes major road problems and school closure.

There were christmas parties here and there for school children and so I was busy making sure my son have everything for his school concert, secret Santa  and other classroom activities that left me running around with him in stores looking for the perfect costume and the perfect exchange gift for school.

Then comes the holiday season, invitation here and there, packing presents for family and friends and that explains that this was way busy December for me.

I put on too many shoes, but that is what  makes my life interesting and that is what makes me say for the most part “life is good”.

Canadian Men earned big honours on the international stage

Men of Canada, take a well-deserved bow.

It was a spectacular week for this four typically humble Canadian men.

Actor Ryan Reynolds, the 34 year old son of a Mountie, was named People magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive – the first Canadian ever to earn that title.

Cincinnati Reds first baseman Joey Votto was named the National League MVP.

Justin Bieber claim the Artist of the year award at the 38th Annual American Music Awards on Nov.21

Rapper Drake, the former star of the” Degrassi: Next Generation was honoured by GQ as the breakout man of the year.

Four Canadian-born, Canadian-raised, Canadian-educated guys- baseball superstar Joey Votto, pop-music sensation Justin Bieber, Hollywood heartthrob Ryan Reynolds and actor/singer/fashion icon Drake – have each  shot to the top of their respective fields in the past few days and are now basking in an international spotlight.

For this shining moment, no matter how brief it might prove to be, Canadians should take note that we were able to produce four  typically humble men, in a way this country has never seen, or perhaps dreamt possible.

They say, nice guys sometimes…finish first.
