It was just over a year ago when I met this beam of light at the restaurant I manage. She came in all quiet like for a bite at the bar. She wanted something vegetarian and obviously that peaked my interest, as I too am a veggie, and that kinda got our friendship rolling. I believe in my heart that people come into your life for a reason. I know for sure she certainly did. We had more in common than I thought. We touched on many topics. I asked her if she was on Instagram and she shyly said yes. I went on it and saw she had over 2400 followers and I was like WHAT??? YA you’re on Instagram (she’s doubled that since then but who’s counting😜)! But it was our chat about recovery that really connected us. I knew God had sent her to me. And I’m very grateful for it. 

About 4 months after our first encounter I went on a major life trip. I went to become a certified yoga teacher and traveled to Bali, Thailand, India and London England. We stayed in touch on social media and upon my return connected in real time. I taught a yoga class at the MaRS building and invited her to come along. 

I had made some superfood power balls for all the practitioners after class as a treat. And according to my dear friend (@thelittleblackcoffeecup) that’s where the idea was born for this collaboration.  She emailed me and proposed the idea… #thingsthatgowithcoffee being the tag she was working on.  

She came over with a fantastic bag of coffee, a hand grinder and her camera and we got to work. 

As she snapped away I got messy making balls. It was such a lovely afternoon. Please go follow her amazing Instagram account @thelittleblackcoffeecup and go to her website to read her version of that day’s events☺️
