Hello!

I live in Vancouver, and work as a librarian and occasional copy editor. I like coffee, vegan pancakes, well made books and knitted things, cats and bikes and music that's sometimes hard to listen to. When I'm not working, I'm usually messing up the kitchen or dreaming up places to go with my camera.

Fritz PastryThis was my last stop before saying goodbye to Chicago. Fritz Pastry has excellent vegan donuts – I brought a whole box home on the plane! They also make the very best cherry scone I've ever tasted.
