Miss Gazelle Races into the Hive!

Hello hive!!!!

Is this really happening? It feels so surreal. I cannot believe that I am the newest bee to join the hive! I was checking my e-mail at a stoplight and I saw that I had an e-mail from Pengy. I opened it up and couldn’t believe my eyes. I screamed and threw my phone at Mr. Gazelle and asked him to read the e-mail. He thought something terrible had happened, but as soon as I could speak I yelled, “Oh my gawd, I’m a beeeeeeee!”

So who is Miss Gazelle? I was born in Canada, but left as a wee one to travel around the world with my parents. We moved to Australia, to England, to South America, back to England, back to Canada, to Indonesia and then back to Canada. Talk about a crazy way to grow up but I wouldn’t have changed it for the world.

After becoming an engineer and travelling a bit on my own I finally settled back in Canada. Soon thereafter I met Mr. Gazelle! Who is he? He is a computer tech geek who loves raw oysters, good food, good beer and wine and old episodes of Star Trek – The Next Generation.

Why Miss Gazelle? Well, I love to run marathons and race triathlons! I may not be super speedy but I’d like to think that I one day may be able to run as swiftly and gracefully as a gazelle.

As for our wedding, we are planning a smallish get together of close family and friends in Vancouver, British Columbia. Our wedding will be full of fun, laughter and love with touches of whimsy. I can’t wait to share it with you. Thanks for having me!!
