I won't drink to that


I hit a major milestone this week, one that isn't specifically about my transition, but is definitely related to it and I am super excited because of it! Enough that I won't drink to it...

So, in previous posts I have commented about where I was with alcohol consumption prior to starting HRT in July. A major goal I had in this journey was to bring my consumption levels below the maximum recommended weekly intake for women, which is eight.

This week, for the first time since I graduated College, I am below that number. That is cause for celebration for me, because in one week I will have had seven drinks and, before July, that's a hair more than an average evening.

Now, I recognize that this is just a major signpost on a longer journey, but for me, the goal was to bring my consumption under control and turn from a daily need into an occasional treat. I think I am well on the way to making that happen.

Rather amazing what becoming happy in yourself can really do for you.

Eaton Centre tells us we're not welcome

When I talk about inclusion in my workplace, I talk a lot about how the space I have worked in was inclusive. From gender neutral (and not repurposing) bathrooms to Pride related content, and more, the space was designed to be inclusive of my community. Enter Cadillac Fairview's Eaton Centre.

Twitter is burning and I am so very happy about that.

What-to-Wear Panic

I am amazed, but it seems that I have this "what I am going to wear?" panic in spades (sometimes literally, given my addiction to Kate Spade) and it's cropped up a few times recently.
