Celebrating our Mothers

Categories: Activities & Recreation, Agritourism, Heritage & Culture, Shopping & Services, Wine & Food

Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and just in case you haven’t already, mark your calendar for the second Sunday in May – this year, May 12th.   Now, not everyone is a Mother but the day is also a day to celebrate and honor motherhood, maternal bonds and the influence of mothers.  Some of us may have gained a new Mom through marriage or have a motherly, nurturing person that influences our lives.  I am a Mom to two great kids that make my life more interesting and fun than I could have ever imagined.  I have also gained four “part time” sons as a billet family for the Langley Rivermen.  I am also fortunate to have a Mom and Mom in law that are there to help whenever I need it.

A Tour Through Vietnam

Category: Wine & Food

Lately I’ve been finding it hard to come up with anything interesting to cook up for dinner during the week.  I tend to stick with the tried and true favourites and rarely do I experiment with new ingredients, spices or flavours.  A great way to learn some new skills in the kitchen and satisfy all the hungry stomachs at your dinner table is to take part in a local cooking class.  Awhile ago I attended a class with my colleagues, and I think it just may be time to book myself another one!

Langley Wine Tour

Categories: Agritourism, Wine & Food

You don’t have to ask me twice to join a wine tour through Langley.  A few weeks ago it was parents’ weekend for the Langley Rivermen.  For the past four years we have been a billet family for our local Junior A hockey team, the team recruits players from Canada and the USA and those players need a home away from home during hockey season.  It has been a great experience and part of that is meeting the families of these great young men that call our home, well home for part of the year.  After the parents’ breakfast Saturday morning our billets parents asked about what they could do for the rest of the day, they were thinking of heading into Vancouver to see some sights.  Taylor Henderson, the Director of Operations for the Langley Rivermen heard the question and suggested they tour some of Langley’s wineries.  Now what kind of host would I be if I didn’t offer to go along with them?  Clearly Taylor was thinking the same thing and it took less than a minute for each of us to let our spouses know we were off to play tour guide.

New Year’s Resolutions

I don’t know about you, but I’m not sure where January went.  Were we not all just ringing in 2013, taking down the Christmas tree and excited about a fresh start by making some New Years Resolutions? I read an article a few days ago that said that 80% of New Years Resolutions are broken by January 20th- yikes that seems pretty short lived.   If you find yourself in that boat we thought we could give you some ideas of what you can do in and about Langley to get your resolutions back on track.

A Petite Piece of Paris

Categories: Activities & Recreation, Heritage & Culture, Shopping & Services, Wine & Food

I bet you didn’t know you can visit Paris in Fort Langley, but it’s true. Right here on Glover Road in a beautiful, and some believe haunted heritage home, resides the most wonderful Parisian-inspired boutique and café – Little White House & Co.

The local gem, run by Cheryl Krecsy and her daughter Natasha Krecsy, carries everything from clothing and spa-quality products to lovely home décor items. In every nook and cranny there’s a whimsical treasure sure to delight. It truly is one of the most unique shopping experiences here in the Fraser Valley.

The Origin of ‘Brunch’ & Where You Can Get it in Langley

Categories: Itineraries, Wine & Food

According to a quick search on Wikipedia, the term ‘brunch’ was probably coined in Britain in 1835 in an article by Guy Beringer. I like what he had to say, and agree with his thoughts regarding this late-morning meal.

Restaurant Spotlight: Planet Java Cafe

Categories: Heritage & Culture, Wine & Food

Keeping to the theme of our recent posts, if you have a sentimental longing for the ways of the past, a little gem found in our historic village of Fort Langley is sure to quench your nostalgic thirst. Located on Glover Road in the heart of the charming ‘Birthplace of BC’, Cafe Planet Java pays homage to a time of classic rock and roll. Decked out in Elvis memorabilia, Marilyn Monroe’s smile lights up the walls, and their famous milkshakes are just some of the draws for visitors and locals alike.
