I’m back from my Buffalo, New York trip and man was it good to get away! My HB and I had only planned on staying one night, but hotel was really nice and since we had an extra day because of the long weekend, we decided stay both Friday and Saturday nights. It’s funny because when […]

I think it’s safe to say (knock on wood) that spring has finally arrived here in Toronto! All the snow has melted, I’ve put away my parka and snow boots, and I can actually walk outside without wearing a pair of gloves! This winter has been beyond brutal for this born and bred west coaster. […]

This past summer I was checking the job boards pretty much 24/7 after having quit my job in Vancouver to make a new home for myself in Toronto.
