Tonight Sunday July 15, I will be performing at Rosa's Lounge in Chicago as a part of this wonderful line up of musicians in support of our friend, Tom Hyslop!
Tom has been battling cancer and we will be raising money to help him and his family. We hope that you can join us for this special show!
What a tragedy. Ray used to live a few houses down from us in our old neighbourhood in Kanata. This young man led the Sens to the Stanley Cup finals in '07, and that was an unforgettable season for many of us. Our hearts go out to his family, friends, and fans. Praying for the Lord's peace and comfort to strengthen your hearts 😔

I barely have the words to describe what this tattoo means to me. When we put the stencil on, I broke into tears. I’m even tearing up as I type this. A little over 2 years ago, @nero_82 drew up this piece as a bet for me while bored at work between appointments and told me I’d never really get it. Well, joke’s on the homeboy because GUESS WHO DID IT. I wish I could thank him for all the guidance, the advice, the encouragement, everything. I wish I could thank him for believing in me when I didn’t. It’s amazing what a huge impact he had on so many people, and I’m glad I got to be one of them. I’m also eternally grateful for @urielleon being so incredible & tattooing this design for me & for paying tribute to a true legend. Nero may be gone, but his memory will live on forever 🥀 #nerolives#nero#workinprogress#inkhouse#tribute#tattoo#girlswithtattoos#inkedgirls#tattoos#tattooed#newtattoo#ink#drake#champagnepapi
Yesterday's #heart sighting was at Vancouver PRIDE. I saw this woman sitting across from our booth and noticed she had a number of rainbow striped hearts tattooed on her arm.
I walked over and asked her if I could take a photo, explaining that I share hearts I see with you all. She agreed and proceeded to tell me this was a tribute tattoo to her dog who had passed away. They'd been best friends and constant companions, so when it was time to say goodbye, she felt she needed to tattoo that would honor her memory on her arm.
Flowers, hearts, and paw prints. You could feel her emotion and gratitude for the time she'd had with this special soul in her life. She liked that I was going to share that with you all as well.
Storytelling as a tradition is so important and keeps honoring our loved ones as a part of our lives and history. Let's bring that back and share more of our life lessons and our history with one another. ❤️💛💚💙💜
