This weekend we—my partner, Jess, and me—made a trip to a small town between Calgary and Banff: Canmore, AB. Looking for relaxation, inspiration, and fresh brisk air, we didn’t expect the great food and drink scene that Canmore has to offer two self-proclaimed foodies looking for a weekend getaway. Among the high achievers was our first stop, Rave Coffee. We loved the coffee and atmosphere on our first visit so much that I find myself writing this post while enjoying an espresso and pour over on our way out of town.
Ok. Look. I procrastinate. I procrastinate a lot. I have a reasonably sized talk tomorrow at Startup Edmonton (you should come! Details found here!), of which I have yet to finish, let alone practice. So instead of doing that I’ve decided to come and enjoy the ritual of an espresso at Credo Coffee. I’m not proud of my choices, but they are the choices that get made (either by me or at the whims of some biological process). So why not talk about the espresso, get it out of my system, then head back to work.
So why am I starting a blog? And what is it going to be about? These are great questions, and hopefully this post will act as a launching pad for the content that will eventually be found here. Instead of having a long rant up front, I’m going to answer a bunch of questions you may have and you can easily skip sections if they are uninteresting.
