Creekside Coffee Factory

Usually once a week, my friend Sarah and I go for sushi. Our last sushi date had been the first in weeks as we had many different things going on. Just having sushi didn’t seem like enough time to catch up so after dinner we made our way across the street to a cute little […]

My friend Jessica has raved about a local restaurant, Big Feast Bistro, for years. She has been many times, however I haven’t been once. Jessica got home from Nova Scotia (where she just graduated university – congrats girl) and we definitely had reason to celebrate. Big Feast Bistro is in the middle of two main […]
