What up folks!
Exciting times around here…here being a city in Western Canada rife with leaves and mountains, sunshine and activists.
Vancouver does summer just like you’d expect. It’s a place of smiles and laziness, with nearly everyone a bit uncomfortable with the idea of being inside for too long.
Working on a startup, it’s easy to forget that a door to the building is all that separates you from nature’s glory.
Working on a startup also makes going outside less of a priority.
I just got back from Chicago where I watched Chalise marry the man of her dreams and I really can’t imagine what kind of blog post it would take to express how deeply meaningful and heartwarming and significant it was to witness. I know I’ll watch my sisters get married and I now have a glimpse of what that will feel like.
At the wedding, I was standing by the bar (surprisingly?) when Graffiti6’s “Stare Into The Sun” came on and I turned to see Cha coming at me in her gorgeous wedding dress with a fat smile ear to ear and it felt like getting a wedding gift at someone else’s wedding. And I don’t think that’s a feeling many people have at weddings which don’t involve siblings or their own kids. I nearly cried.
We skinned the dance floor together.
My last memories will include that one.
Foodtree is a company now, which is to say it’s something different than it was when I arrived in Vancouver.
It’s exciting, as I said above…
…it’s incredibly exciting.
I wake up every morning wishing I had five more minutes to make Foodtree better.
That’s a great feeling.
What’s up with you?
