We are continuing our Family Portrait series to show you some more behind the scenes goodies at Lousje and Bean and to help you get to know our staff better. Today we are featuring Darcie who has been a part of the Lousje & Bean family for so long that we couldn't imagine life without her.
We asked Darcie 10 questions, and this is what she had to say:

What's your favourtie way to spend a weekend or a Sunday afternoon?
My favourite way to spend a Sunday afternoon is relaxing on the beach in Port Dalhousie, while my daughter swims. We walk on the beach, looking for "sea glass" and then grab an ice cream and of course a ride on the carousel.

I have always wanted to travel to hawaii.
