Over the last couple of years I have discovered the joys of working from coffee shops. It is a great way to expose yourself to different people and environments. For this reason, I take advantage of working from coffee shops as much as possible. Over the course of this time, I’ve learned a few dos and don’ts to make working from coffee shops smooth and productive.

Hubby and I recently moved into our lovely new home in Toronto. In order to properly acclimatize to our new surroundings, we decided to take the kitchen for a test drive, with a small, casual dinner party. It’s hard to think of anything that says “home” better than a pizza party! Between homemade pizza and Italian wine, we elevated our casual pizza party affair to adult status, and officially broke our new space in for entertaining.
Since moving to Toronto, I have discovered a natural aptitude for exploring my new home by eating my way through it. Restaurants, cafés, five star to dive bar – you name it, I’ve tired it.
