ink and chocolate about

We are Jon and Elise, and we totally wuv each other. We’ve been married since 2004, and have two wonderful fur babies, Finnegan and Akamaru. We love video games, good food, trying new things, being nerdy, and of course, chocolate.

Did you know we’re from Medicine Hat, Canada? We’re proud to be Canadian because of all the wonderful things that Canada offers, like poutine, and maple syrup, and polar bear dipping. Follow along to see some of the weirdest and awesomest things born in our home and native land.

Living in Medicine Hat, it can be easy to take for granted all of the wonderful things around you. It seems like everyone wants to go away for their vacation, when there are so many incredible sights and opportunities right here in our own back yard. We’re making it our mission to explore events, activities and restaurants in Medicine Hat and Southern Alberta, and making videos of our adventures.

Finally, we love chocolate so much that we’ve created an excuse to eat more of it. It’s a tough job, but someone’s gotta do it. We feel there’s no more explanation needed for this, because, I mean, chocolate.
