Flying home is always so exciting! Our city lights up! The CN Tower is clearly bright blue because our Toronto Maple Leafs are back on the ice for an exciting season — you can see the hustle and bustle of the YYZ from all angles of our city. Time to land! Hello Toronto and happy November to YOU! God, I love this city. Home sweet home! It is such an honour to write about Toronto on a monthly basis giving you all the gossip and excitement each month has to offer. CHER is HERE! I have only seen this iconic queen say goodbye at every farewell tour she has had, and let me tell you… at 74, Cher ain’t saying goodbye anytime soon. Get your tickets now as Cher will take over our city at the end of the month. I saw this Mama Mia Tour out West this summer and YES, I am going again to see her perform here at Scotiabank Arena because she sings all five decades of her hits! November is a month to reflect, respect, and most importantly, REMEMBER the women and men that continue to fight for our freedom. On November 11 take a moment to share a story of your grandparents or listen to a tale of a hero that made life as we know it possible. Freedom is fabulous and should never be taken for granted. Wear a poppy proud and let’s get Out on the Town! Happy November to YOU and all your family and friends!
