Some of our readers may remember an interview I was lucky to have with Arkansas design talent, Tobi Fairley. Since the interview Tobi and I have been corresponding via our blogs, facebook, twitter and e-mail and have formed a modern pen-pal style friendship.
When Tobi mentioned that she was visiting Vancouver and Canada for the first time with her husband, Carter, I knew we would have to take the opportunity to meet face-to-face. I invited Tobi to be the guest of honour at a brunch held at my home away from home, The Voya restaurant at The Loden Hotel.

It was a fun day and the conversation was phenomenal, it was such a pleasure to be able to meet Tobi in person. Tobi is a true southern belle.
The Voya Restaurant did a great job with the food and the service – they even coordinated the menus with the theme of the invitations and place cards – thank you to Alexis Prince for all of her help.

We wish we were able to take more photographs, but we were a little distracted.
