The Beginning Of Annex Suspended

I don’t like sitting still for too long. If I sit still for a long period of time I come up with ideas like Annex Suspended. Not wanting to do this one alone, I approached my friend Michelle Galway about making mobiles together and she joined me without much arm twisting.

Annex Suspended launched by art show, obviously. That’s the way most businesses begin. Right? The art show sold a few pieces and now we’re going to try and make a go of it online.

We’re so new, we’re still trying to figure out who exactly we are. So if you’re interested in observing our journey of discovery, you can follow us any of the follow ways:

So, I guess sitting still for a long period of time isn’t so bad.

Finally Made It To Pho Locoal

Pho Locoal - Fernie BC restaurant
Thanks to Marie, I was able to get to Pho Local for the first time. It was a really nice time – we saw some friends we knew and it felt like this place had been there a long time. I heard a rumour that the starters were unbelievable and I’d second that. My noodle bowl was good too but the starters had such good flavours. Yum. I’ll be back and definitely order the pork sliders again.
