To kick off this week’s themed posts we are going to hear about Vancouver. I knew immediately who I wanted to send my questions to. This friend of mine, who has been asked to be referred to as “Mr. Awesome”, loves Vancouver and tells us frequently about how he thinks it is so wonderful. I myself have never been so am happy to share his opinion with you.

I would like to thank “Mr. Awesome” for answering all my questions. Clearly he loves being from Vancouver and eating seafood. Maybe one day I will make it out there and treat him to some sushi as payment for contributing to Lovely Littlest Life.
