A lot can happen in a week....

My friend and owner of GirlTalk Events is moving with her family to Vancouver. GirlTalk has been a big part of my life this last year and it's future was somewhat up in the air. On Tuesday, it was proposed that I become a co-owner with two of the other hosts. I know how hard it can be to make new friends and step out of one's comfort zone and try new activities while meeting potential new friends. GirlTalk has built up my confidence as well as my support system. I want other women to have this opportunity as well.

So, this week I am now a co-owner of a company! And it's a little bit scary, but mostly exciting. I'm slightly feeling overwhelmed, but ready to take GirlTalk to amazing new levels. is the webpage if you are in Calgary and surrounding area and want to attend some great events to meet some fabulous ladies.

What a month! New car, new company, new chapter.

Wait...did I mention I bought a new car?? It was my birthday present to myself. A 2010 Toyota Corolla S. Toyota has been offering some amazing breaks and I was able to get 5 year financing with 0% interest. A free loan :) Also, I apologize for the horrible pun.

I am participating in The Ride to Conquer Cancer. If you would like to sponsor me, click here
