The Bitter and the Sweet

We were invited out for dinner on Friday night by Kim and Sean. They took us to a really lovely little restaurant down in Oakville town centre called Julia - a real "foo-foo" restaurant, as Kim would say. This is not a restaurant review so I won't go into detail about the food, but it was a delicious hybrid of Italian and South American cuisines and was just fantastic. The way they combined unusual tastes like shrimp and lime, or cashews and cranberries, made for an interesting and tasty mix of the bitter and the sweet.

Of course, the realisation that our time here in Oakville is quickly coming to an end was perhaps the most bittersweet thing of all. We've had an amazing year here, and made some great friends. It will be an incredibly emotional and difficult thing to have it all come to an end in the next few weeks. Sean and Kim in particular have become very special to us, and we will miss them like crazy. We gave them a little thank you gift, just a small thing to say how much they've meant to us, and of course a few tears were shed. But mostly we laughed and ate and drank and had a wonderful night together.

Thanks guys. We had a great night, and a great year.
