Oh Salmon, How I Love Thee, Let Me Count the Ways

Oh thank you, sweet Mother Nature, Summer has finally arrived up in here!  If you haven’t had the joy of experiencing a British Columbia coastal summer, then let me paint you a pic:  Balmy breezes carrying whiffs of sea air, patios packed with revellers smashing rose and blowing off work for the afternoon, long and…

This is 2

So we’re in the thick of it, here. The terrible twos. The tantrum phase. And it’s real. Don’t have kids? Congratulations on feeling well-rested and having unscratched corneas!
