I feel like I should mention why I haven't blogged in over a year. The reasons are at least two-fold:
Those aren't really good excuses, because people do more with less time on their hands, but what can I say, it was easy to ignore. With my wife recovering from pregnancy and giving birth, I also took over the downtown kettlebell classes 3 times per week. That cut down on my free time too.
But, yeah, I'm still around, and I still spend lots of time in the downtown area. Which leads me into the next topic: Big Day Downtown 2012! This year, there is a bit of a catch to being given one hundred bucks and let loose to spend it in downtown Halifax. Each participant is paired up with another, and we have to go have our downtown adventures together. I got matched up with Gillian Wesley from www.thelocaltravelerns.com. I wasn't able to stay long at the launch of the event, so I haven't even met her yet.
Look forward to posts describing what we've been up to with our downtown money!
