Yesterday, Akemi and I continued our Goodbye Tour by hitting Lamesa Filipino Kitchen with two of our favorite fun new Toronto friends, Ellen and Adam.  Besides being super cute herself, Ellen shares Akemi’s affinity for super cute things so the two of them really hit it off.  As for Adam, he’s incredibly easy-going and down-to-earth. Akemi liked him the instant she met him which, honestly, is a rarity.  It usually takes her a while to arm up to someone but in Adam’s case, she was happily chatting away like they were old friends.

A super lovely couple.
