Where to start... I will be 40 this year! Yikes - how on earth did that happen?? I'm actually really looking forward to it. I have always LOVED my birthday, just ask my friends, I usually have a countdown leading up to the "day the world became a better place", yes that's how I refer to my birthday! lol. I have been warning my husband for the past few years that he better throw me the most spectacular surprise party ever for my 40th! I even went as far as to request Duff from Ace of Cakes to make and deliver my cake. Ok, I know it's a stretch but a girl can dream can't she?? Send me a message and I'll be sure to make Steve put you on the invite list!!
What else... I have a beautiful daughter who just turned 13 months old! She is an absolute joy and came to us after many years of struggling with infertility. We faced a scare with her when she was 7 weeks old and spent a week at Sick Kids Hospital (greatest hospital on earth!) and she was diagnosed with a heart condition called SVT (Supraventricular Tachycardia) where she has an accessory pathway in her heart causing it to go tachycardic (fast/racing heartbeat). She takes meds daily and she will be having some tests done in August to see if she has outgrown the condition and we can hopefully take her off her meds. She is such a trooper and has defied all odds to get here so I am convinced that she is going to find the cure for cancer when she's older - she was sent here for a much greater purpose than to make me happy. She has had angels guiding her long before we met her and I know they keep her safe every day.
Honourable mention... of course I must mention my loving husband. He has been a huge support for me when I decided to go back to school to get my real estate licence and he really is my biggest fan! I owe him a huge amount of gratitude for always believing in me and standing by me while we venture down this new path of our lives. Don't tell him I said so though, it'll go to his head. lol.
My BFF... I think you can tell a lot about a person by looking at the types of friendships they build over the years. I met my BFF (ok really - I'm almost 40 and using the acronym BFF!!) when I worked my first job ever at Wendy's when I was 13 years old. Funny thing is, we didn't really like each other at first! lol. But here we are 27 years later, still the very best of friends. She is my rock. When I need to vent or cry or laugh, she is there. My life would not be complete without her in it.
So that's a snippit of me and my life. I approach most things in life with a sarcastic sense of humour and flare for having a good time. I don't take life too seriously and I don't sweat the small stuff!
So now that you know a little bit more about me... can I sell your house for you today???? LOL!
