December 30, 2009

Today I had a busy morning running around to appointments and just wanted a quiet place to eat with a good girlfriend of mine so we could chat over lunch.  It was raining quite a bit too, so we both felt lazy and didn’t want to have to walk very far.  We were both searching around online for a [...]

December 29, 2009

December 23, 2009

On the weekend there was something that I was really craving, and that was the lavendar latte and Fricasse at Cafe Medina, on Beatty Street in the Crosstown area of downtown Vancouver.
