A DIFFERENT KIND OF RESTAURANT

There are so many people that we are so thankful for but, with the weekend coming, I wanted to take a moment to mention a special thank you that was a surprise for us. Why is the weekend important? Because brunch happens on the weekend.

There is a restaurant on Granville Island called Edible Canada Bistro that Matt and I love to go to because they have celiac friendly food. Before Lauren was hospitalized, we were going with friends and family on a regular basis. When Lauren went in to the hospital, I emailed the restaurant to ask if I could set up a standing order for their weekend brunch and have someone pick it up. Within a few hours, the owner of the restaurant was at the ICU waiting room with a gift basket of celiac friendly goodies and a bag of celiac friendly meals. That blew our minds but then it went even further. We were provided with brunch free of charge every weekend that we were in the hospital. We tried to pay but we were told that our money was no good there.

If you're looking for somewhere great to go for brunch, lunch or dinner, check out Edible Canada Bistro. Tell them that Lauren sent you!



I know that as soon as Lauren is allowed out in public again we will be there again regularly.
