Go big or go home is what I say quite often and if we’re going to celebrate Valentine’s Day this year then let’s go all out!

Saturday mornings at REDS (Square One)

As I’m sitting at my desk drafting this post, I’ve realized in a blink of an eye, come September is my 5 years working downtown Toronto.

Starting from a storefront in Markham, then expanding with 4 more locations across the…
