Lori is another East Vancouver neighbor, sweet and sassy in equal measure. I've known her for years, but we didn't start really hanging out until she moved to a co-op three blocks away. I adore her and how much she loves children and big dogs. This year her hair's been perpetually in flux, always new colours and shapes, so it was extra interesting to take her picture with it all cut off. My favourite fact about Lori is that she's a big-rig truck driver because when she was little she wanted to grow up to be Optimus Prime.
