This evening I embark on my long awaited journey to Toronto for the week! Words cannot express how excited I am!  I wouldn’t be who I am today without such a supportive community cheering me on every step of the way.  I wouldn’t ever wish to live anywhere else but Guy, although small to say the least there is no place I’d rather call home.  Perhaps it lies within the fact that I can so easily be doing a photoshoot on Main Street (the only street) and have every neighbour there is offer me a ride back the fifty meters to my house, or the fact that half way through cooking dinner only to realize I’m out of tomato sauce I can walk across the street and come home with more tomato sauce than anyone can eat, maybe its the fact that while I’m out for dinner people approach me with news paper articles asking if I’ve read the latest article, maybe its the fact that at a police check stop to promote safe driving I’m greeted by name by the friendly officer, its all these things combined that makes my community and the Smoky River Region the best place to live.  In a community where everyone knows your name and has your back its impossible not to feel safe, the amount of support I’ve received throughout my life not just my reign as Miss Teen Northern Alberta-World 2013 is phenomenal, I am so fortunate.  Thank you to all my wonderful community members willing to go above and beyond every step of the way.  Thank you to Michelle Steib Photography for the stunning pictures and always being such an inviting, fun, professional, photographer.  Thank you to Blush Esthetics for pampering me before the big day.  Thank you to Sammy’s Pizza, Tony’s Donair, Paper Finch Photography, Jonesie’s Hair Boutique and Jennessa St.Onge for there contributions to my fundraiser for Free The Children.  Thank you to Lorraine Desaunliers and Laura Emard for allowing me to partake in their events, the mothers day tea and Honey Festival both went off amazingly!  Thank you to Louise Bastien for altering my dress last minute so that it fits like a glove.  Thank you to Mr. McCarthy for writing me a lovely letter of recommendation.  Thank you to the Jones and Gagne families for helping me enter the pageant and put on a beautiful fundraiser.  Thank you to Ecole Providence School for welcoming me into their school and allowing me to use it for my fundraiser.  Thank you to the community of Guy for allowing me to be a part of their Skidoo Rally.  Thank you to my family for your constant love and support, especially my little sister and mom who are always first on board to help with my crazy ideas.  Thank you to my wonderful friends for keeping me grounded and level-headed when the going got tough.  Thank you to all the citizens of the Smoky River Region for all your kind words and support.  From the bottom of my heart, to the community that made me feel like a princess long before I ever had a crown, thank you.

XO,

with lots of love,

Even in the itty bitty hamlet of Guy people have heard of “S-Trip!”, a company which works to send graduates and their friends anywhere and everywhere to ensure they have one safe last hurrah with their classmates!  Not only do they work towards giving students the trip of a lifetime but S-Trip! is also a sponsor of the Miss Teen Canada World 2013 pageant!! S-Trip! has agreed to send the “Social Media Queen” on the grad trip of her choice!! Cool right?!  For those of you who haven’t heard of S-Trip! I suggest you watch the trailer and book your trip ASAP, it’ll be the #tripofalifetime!

My dream S-Trip would be to Greece namely because I love Europe and its diversity and it’s been at the top of my list for awhile.  Greece is as ancient as it gets and the athlete in me would LOVE to see the olympia where the most famous games first took place.  Being surrounded by nothing but crystal blue water and cloudless skies sounds like the PERFECT get away to me!  Specifically I would travel to the capital; 3400 year old Athens to take in all the beautiful architecture and beaches it has to offer.

Since I’m a total foodie I’d be in heaven trying all the souvlaki and fresh fish

and fresh veggies like olives and tomatoes, mmmm!

Of course while I’m there I’d spend as much time on the beach as possible soaking up some rays and swimming in the beautiful water.

During my vacation I would spend a day volunteering with community development with

an organization such as “volunteers for peace” to help rebuild ruins such as the first primary school.

Because I live in such a tiny community, my graduating class is rather small so I would bring all of them for one last bonding experience before we head off in separate directions.

My classmates and I would spend our days perusing the greek markets and hiking through the ruins or boating on the crystal water, and our nights at S-Trip! events such as tight n bright nights!  I know this would be an unforgettable trip!

S-Trip! takes student travellers on unforgettable adventures around the world. Celebrate the exciting conclusion of high school in the Dominican Republic, Mexico, Cuba, Costa Rica or Bahamas with all your friends on Grad Trip. Spend a weekend skiing or snowboarding at one of Canada’s premier mountain resorts on Ski Trip. Experience culture, sightseeing and events in Montreal or Quebec City on Busaway. Make a difference in an underdeveloped country on an impactful student Volunteer Trip. Explore the culture and history of Europe on Euro Adventure. For more information visit www.s-trip.com.

Check out S-Trip! to book your own trip of a lifetime!

Summer just started and its already amazing! June 21 & 22 as you know from my last blog post was Honey Festival in my hometown Falher, AB.  For all you non-Falherites, honey fest is a huge weekend long celebration where we celebrate being the “honey capital of Canada”.  The weekend is complete with bee races, live bands, a dinner, show and shine car show, bee beard, talent show, baseball tournament, a marketplace and much much more!  During the celebration I volunteered my time on Saturday to take surveys so that next year’s honey fest can be even better! After I finished the surveys I took dinner tickets from those enjoying the delicious catered roast beef dinner.  It was a great weekend and a great turnout which I thoroughly enjoyed being a part of!

Now that school is finished till September, I have started back up working full time at the local gym.  I LOVE MY JOB! I couldn’t ask for a better job getting to meet all kinds of new people everyday, its wonderful.

Only 11 days left till I depart for Toronto and I couldn’t be more excited, the days leading up to the pageant will consist of a lot of packing and repacking and repacking. 🙂 Im thrilled for this opportunity!
