Being honored as Entrepreneur of the Year by the Women's Venture Fund was something I was extremely proud of. I spoke from my heart and for my full speech you can go to my blog. I will also be posting it on YouTube. I have worked hard at everything and nothing was ever handed to me. It was also a great feeling to show off my newest pieces for True Faith. I was so happy that my family and friends were all there to support me, which now brings me to Kelly…
In St John's I went out of my way to take care of Kelly. I wanted to keep her calm and be there for her. I continued to do so after the trip. No one is perfect, not even me, and I have learned to accept Kelly for who and what she is.
So, you can imagine my shock when I had emailed her about this event months before and two days before she says she can't attend. No reason. No explanation. Just can't come.
I was really hurt! So when I got home that night, I looked at my phone and got "Ramotional." I answered just as short and cold as she did: "If you can't support me don't ever expect me to support you". Yes, I should have said I was hurt that she couldn't come and talked about what I was really feeling, but I didn't, so I have to own it.
