Monday, Monday (holiday-mode)

hello Monday! (hello, everyone!) Meredith here. I’m still in Halifax, fortifying my friendship-coffers with many many visits and general catch-up sessions with all kinds of great people. Today I’m at a Halifax coffee shop called Java Blend, where it seems

Rainy (make that crazy downpour) Friday
