One of the books I love to reread is Perfectly Imperfect by @harper_sloan . The story of Willow Tate and Kane Masters is one of my favorites. It is a truly powerful and emotional story with an important message 💗
I, like Willow, spent so much time struggling with my self image, and letting the words of others define me. Reading Willow’s story helped me see that I am not alone in my struggle. It helped me see that I don’t need to change myself for anyone. That the thoughts of others cannot and will not define me. Willow and Kane taught me that somewhere out there is someone who wants to love me, for me. No matter my size, no matter my quirks. They would love me just as I am, Perfectly Imperfect. ❤️ @harper_sloan I want to say thank you from the bottom@of my heart for this story. It truly was a blessing! ✨I’m so thankful that I found my Personal Kane Masters and that I get to marry him in 112 days 😍💍 #bookstagram#iamWillow#rereads#loveyourself#ifoundmyperson#lillyricalmashup “Hit me baby one more time.”(Re-read)🎶
10 years ago he grabbed my hand and promised that no matter what he'd never leave my side. Here we are, on the other side of what felt like an eternity of battles, living our best life, a life that we pray for together each morning. 10 years later he's still holding my hand and because of that I'm more blessed than I could have ever imagined. #blessed#ifoundmyperson#myreasonforitall
I’m loving this picture from the weekend 💕
We went to see Xavier Rudd at Malkin Bowl in Stanley Park this last Saturday.
I realized that if it wasn’t for My friend inviting me to see Xavier Rudd live in 2011 in Nanaimo, after my separation and been mesmerized by his music, I wouldn’t of been so curious of my Xavier’s name when I first met him in California in 2012. I made him listen to his music on the beach the day I met him and he already felt like an old friend because his name was so familiar.
I’d listen to his music constantly over the years and it always made me think of Xavier who was living in Montreal. It always inspired me to reach out to him and say hi again.
And one day I finally did 🙌😍🙌
Since then, We have survived 2 years long distance and he moved to be with me and my children here in Vancouver 8 months ago, marking the best 8 Months I’ve ever had!! Can’t help but think it was all meant to be 🙏🏼 I just absolutely love this man and the love he gives me and my kids so generously!
Life really does have a beautiful way of pointing you in the direction of what’s made for you!
I am so grateful to have such a conscious loving guy by my side 💕 and for having the courage to follow my heart!
Thank you Xavier! 🎶✌️If it wasn’t for you, this may not have happened!
The best thing in life is finding someone who knows all your flaws, mistakes and weaknesses, and still thinks you are completely amazing. I found my person 17 years ago💗 HAPPY ANNIVERSARY @pomaranes1! Now just hurry up and get home 😂
I met Charlie on OKC when he asked me what a post-christian Quaker was. We immediately talked religion, boardgames, and animals. I didn't meet him in a public place for our first meeting. I went directly into his apartment into his bedroom and he sang Portal music in an operatic voice to see if Sushi would come out to meet me. I was a mess, in the process of a divorce and still with very fresh wounds.
This morning I'm listening to these lyrics and crying a little because I'm so incredibly thankful to have found a partner who compliments me so well. "Yours was the first face that I saw
I think I was blind before I met you
I don't know where I am, I don't know where I've been
But I know where I want to go"
This was a gift I got tonight. I half read it and put it in my bag. When I got home Danny asked me who wrote it. I said I had no clue and then he told me he did. After I reread it my heart exploded. I don’t know how I found someone who puts up with me or loves me this much. I’m a tiger by the tail and he knows that and let’s me go. I love you @thedanrod to the moon and back! #ifoundmyperson#imalottodealwith#thankyou Never thought we'd get old, maybe we're still young
Maybe we always look back and think it was better than it was
Maybe these are the moments
Maybe I've been missing what it's about
Been scared of the future, thinking about the past
While missing out on now
We've come so far, I guess I'm proud
And I ain't worried about the wrinkles around my smile
I've got some scars, I've been around
I've felt some pain, I've seen some things, but I'm here now
Those good old days
You don't know, what you've got
Till it goes, till it's gone
You don't know, what you've got
Till it goes, till it's gone
We’re 1,000 miles apart, but reading the same book. 💕 Nerdy? Maybe, but I love that you love what I love. #babebookclub Long distance is tough, but finding ways to feel on the same page (quite literally) is something @lilirving and I strive for. I love you! 😘😘 #ifoundmyperson
Sometimes I sit back and think about the what if’s. What if I listened to the people that didn’t get it. What if I allowed myself to stay stuck defeated , miserable, & unhappy. What if I listened to the lies about the way life is supposed to be. What if I continued on the path of life destruction that I was living. What if we didn’t take a chance What if we didn’t just go for it. What if we didn’t just say who cares and what if we didn’t just do it anyway....... I think about us and then I think about our business and I realize it goes hand in hand. We said Yes to Love and we said Yes to More in our life. We said Yes to being Brave and just going for It. We said yes because we didn’t care what others thought. My life is forever changed because I didn’t want to be like everyone else anymore. I wanted to feel special , I wanted to feel loved, I wanted to LIVE. @hjcharlton you changed my life forever and I will Be forever greatful!! Because of you I found happiness and I found a strength that I didn’t know existed inside of me. And because of you I was able to say why not and grab ahold of an opportunity that could open doors that I never imagined ....... I am so proud of US!! Together we can accomplish anything !! I have a burning desire to help others find their BRAVE!! What Fire is burning inside that just needs a little extra flame to ignite your greatness?? Do not settle, Do not give in , If you don’t have someone to help you see that amazing reflection in the mirror Let me be That Person For You!! You deserve everything and more!! #lifeyourway#iwasntalwayslikethis#ivebeenthere#ichoosehappy#ifoundmyperson#whosyourperson#wheresyourbrave#dontwaitanothersecond

I didn't think a love like this existed. These past few days we did some chores and ran errands. We spent time with the kiddos and basically did a whole lot of nothing, lol. And these past few days have been some of the best in my life. This love is indescribable ♡
S/O to my favorite human being & the most talented person that I know @brianwreck for carving this gorgeous mermaid and giving it to me as the best Christmas present that has ever been given to anyone in the history of Christmas. I'm a lucky girl.
