Show & Tell: Aug 19/11

The past two weeks have been pretty crazy with my new job.  I’m loving it here and am so glad I made the decision to find something new.  I wanted to get a contest up this week for you but as you might have noticed I’ve been a little quiet on the blog but very active on Twitter!

It’s hard to believe that it’s getting close to the end of summer.  I’ve kinda been in a perpetual summer climate since November of last year so I’m a little nervous for the cooler weather to come.  It’s been a pretty amazing, crazy and hectic summer, getting back into the Toronto groove, living in a ridiculously small apartment with my man and starting a new job and reorganizing my agency.  But no complaints!  I absolutely love where things are going and can’t wait for what’s next!
