van pastry school collageHappy Friday! What do you have planned for the weekend? Lately, I have been feeling exhausted when I wake up. You know… always playing catch up… always trying to get one step ahead. I was hoping to take a few days off to do nothing, but decided to squeeze in a mini mid-week break to Seattle. I find that I relax best when I’m away. Do you feel the same way?

Robert has been taking baking classes at the Vancouver Pastry School since last November. So far, he has participated in 4 pastry classes ranging from the basics to the perfect afternoon tea and he just completed his first artisan bread baking class last Tuesday. I don’t have much of a sweet tooth, but now that he has signed up for 3 more bread classes including learning how to make croissants, I think I am in trouble!

We leave for One of a Kind Toronto in one week and are madly prepping stock, designing a booth space, and finalizing travel plans. This will be my first time participating at OOAK TO and I think I’m running on 50% crazy and 50% caffeine to make sure that everything is ready in time! I’m a list maker and am spending the afternoon writing everything down. There’s just something so gratifying about crossing off an item on the to do list – you know? Are you guilty of adding to your list just so that you can cross it off? Ha!
