Counting Our Blessings – Isn’t Too Hard to Do

“The hardest arithmetic to master is that which enables us to
count our blessings.” Eric Hoffer

With weather like we have had this week in the Crescenta Valley, it is a little easier to count our blessings that we live in this great community.

One place you can go to enjoy this beautiful weather is Leon Bakery & Café.   Inspired by the cafes around Europe and America, Leon Bakery & Café offers the finest cafe dining, European pastries, danishes, artisan breads and sandwiches. Their unique special order cakes, baked goods and gourmet cupcakes are made to order. Their café includes a wide variety of natural teas, fresh fruit smoothie creations and specialty coffee drinks. The best part is you can enjoy your coffee, tea or smoothie with your dessert of choice in their outside sitting area under a Leon umbrella shade. In the evening they have a spectacular fire pit made to keep you warm and enjoy the glow of the fire with friends, family and new acquaintances. Leon Bakery & Café is located at 2519 Cañada Blvd., Glendale and is a free public WiFi zone.

A great opportunity to see this beautiful bakery and café is Wednesday, Feb. 8 at the Crescenta Valley Chamber business mixer. Join 50 to 60 of our members and prospective members for only $7 for members and $9 for non-members, which includes a chance to mingle with great people and enjoy delicious refreshments.
