Today’s Vancouver Mom: Joyelle Brandt

View More: I was a weird kid who liked to write music and poetry, and spent most of my childhood reading books and playing outside. Not much has changed. I describe myself as a radical self love warrior. I use the creative arts to help women heal their relationships with their bodies and recover from abuse trauma. I live in beautiful Port Moody with my husband and two little monsters Gabe and Gavin, and I am currently writing my second children’s book, Princess Monsters from 1 to 10.

Noons Creek Hatchery

Moody Ales

Caffe Divano

caffe divano Caffe Divano bakes all their goodies on site, including their amazing pies (strawberry, ginger, peach is my favourite), which they serve a la mode with Rocky Point ice cream. If I want to sit and enjoy my coffee, I bring mini board games or play dough to keep the kids entertained.

Saint Street Grill
