Friend of a Friend Matchmaking

Before I met Boyfriend I tried the online dating thing, only for a bit, and I never found anyone that was worth keeping around, ever. This isn’t to say that online dating doesn’t work because I actually know a lovely couple that met on e-harmony who just celebrated their 1 year anniversary AS A MARRIED COUPLE; so online dating can…

The Dating Contract

This is a repost from my Women’s Post column, published every Thursday at Women’s Post online, but a friend was looking for this particular piece and since I wrote it over a year ago it’s really hard to find so enjoy a little crazy on this warm Thursday afternoon.  Dating is hard, especially around Valentine’s Day when single sounds like…

View the Pizza

Boyfriend and I were supposed to head off on a romantic weekend on Friday courtesy of Charming Media and Viamede Resort – that isn’t quite what happened though. Due to an issue with Discount Car and Truck Rental we weren’t able to get our rental Friday night and we didn’t make it to the resort – don’t worry though we’re…

Weekend Getaway

Life has been busy as of late; I organized and ran Love a Heart for the third successful year in a row, I’ve been crazy at work, I went to SXSWi for the first time ever and I’ve got a few exciting opportunities happening in my work life – life is BUSY. Boyfriend has been just as busy promoting his…

March Madness

March started off with a bang and some seriously annoying drama… But aside from that I’ve got a crazy busy March full of awesome things! I leave for SXSW tomorrow afternoon and I’ll be back on the 13, two days later my mum and her hubs are coming to Toronto to meet boyfriend and the weekend after that boyfriend and I are…

So this week we’re working with the press to remind couples that a great night at home can be the best kind of date night. I’ll be at Love…

Chapter 3 – Part 1

When the day came to leave for Windsor I awoke with butterflies in my stomach; I was nervous for so many reasons but there were two big reasons I was lying to my mother and I was going to see Colin for the first time in 2 and a half months. I’d already made the decision to leave home, I’d…

Love a Heart & Rent Frock Repeat

Love a Heart is only 15 days away and honestly I can’t believe it! We have an incredible line up of sponsors, dates and most importantly bachelors & bachelorettes. This year the lovely ladies at Rent Frock Repeat will be dressing myself and hostess Shannon Kelly again which for a gal who lives on a budget is basically the best news ever. Rent Frock…

#LoveaHeart 3!

It’s hard to believe that I am a month away from #LoveaHeart 3! It all started in a coffee shop, it started as an idea, it started as a pitch to every friend I’ve ever had to see who would get involved. Now in our third year we’ve raised a total of $21,000.00 for The Heart and Stroke Foundation! That…
