This is the first of my, A Week in the Life, series of blogs – a tribute to my work, clients, and family all in one! I hope everyone can get a glimpse of the lovely balance I have created and continually strive for.
There’s nothing better than being able to reflect on the week and feel complete. This is how I feel after this September long weekend – complete. It was a week full of lots of work, and lots of play! I met a few new clients, got to explore the Kelowna Cultural District in depth, and visited many homes in the downtown area of Kelowna – the Kelowna real estate market is going strong! I also got to spend lots of time with the family and enjoyed every minute of it.
Monday was Labour Day, the last of the summer long weekends, and great day to catch up on things and plan the rest of my week. Today, well, today’s most precious moment was dropping Nikolas off at school, his first day at Aberdeen Hall Preschool. Holy moly has this kid grown up fast!
I have been lucky with my career as I am able to be there for my kids – I wouldn’t have it any other way. I will always be there for them first especially when it means driving them to school across town…it’s just a car ride that takes 40 minutes…that’s all. The smile on his face when he sees the school, and more so THE KIDS, is priceless and I wouldn’t miss it for the world. Besides, no one does real estate deals at 7:45 in the morning right!
Now, back to reflecting on my week. Let’s focus on one major accomplishment. I am afraid that I could write a novel if I talk about each day… we don’t want that.
It started it off by attending a wonderful event in support of Mamas for Mamas, a non-profit based on Moms helping other Moms. The lovely Amy Rauscher from MOGA hosted a fundraising/giving back event at Just 4 Fun Play Centre in West Kelowna. I believe all together she raised over $1200 and over 50 gifts to give back to the mamas who attended. AWESOME AMY! I think I will call her that from now on…AWESOME AMY! Here is the MOGA Facebook page.
I was able to give away $100 to Homesense and 4 Bottles of wine for the event so that a few lovely ladies could enjoy themselves… mamas need a break sometimes too. I am VERY PROUD of being a part of these groups and I hope to be able to support them more as I go!
MOGA is fitness for Moms where the focus is on strengthening the body to help with the regular things mamas do like picking up the baby, or putting toddlers in car seats and the best part about it is that you can bring the kids! Toddlers, babies, you name it. By clicking here you can check out the full description of MOGA on their webpage.
Amy has been generous enough to host MOGA classes by donation for the last few months at the new Maternity Care centre at Prairie West Shopping Centre on Harvey and Westlake in West Kelowna (The centre that houses the new Fabricland), but she is also looking to expand and find her own space – this is where I come in. I have been helping Amy in her search for the perfect spot. We are looking for the ideal location in Kelowna for a yoga studio that has ample of FREE parking for mamas and enough room to house the kidlets that participate too.
I hope we can find Amy her perfect MOGA spot soon!
On a side note, I look forward to sharing my experiences with those who want to read about them in A Week in the Life… thanks for reading!
