Happy #pride Friends. ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜 I’ve been thinking about an article I read a few weeks ago about a group of Mom’s, Dad’s and Pastors that were speaking up and out sharing compassion and love and literally giving hugs to any young people whom may not have support from their own families or church during a pride parade, maybe in Texas somewhere. If anyone knows who wrote it, leave it in the comments👌🏼It was a moving article. As a Mom, Step Mom, AND a Youth Pastor... this speaks right to my heart. I’ve mentored hundreds of youth over the years and could not even fathom turning anyone away from anything but huge love should they come to me sharing fears about letting the world or even their families know who they are. I fully believe in the power of God’s love, again my God perhaps you call this source something else? Either way God = LOVE and Perfection. The only perfection that exists. YEP. The only! We see ourselves so harshly sometimes, yet we are amazing creatures of light and magic. I believe every human was created in the divine likeness of God and there are NO Mistakes. The world isn’t always kind or fair, not by a long shot. Bad stuff happens. Every day. Love is love, more importantly though is knowing every person is stitched together & created for a purpose. Despite circumstances which don’t always support direction or intention. The way you love or feel love, is exactly as was meant to be. I want you (if you need to hear this right now) to know, I’m here with free hugs — anytime to anyone that doesn’t feel seen, accepted or supported due to sexual orientation. (Oh why limit this?? - I’m a huge people supporter in general!) LGBTQ or Hetero, You are Love, YOU are Enough. Today I plan to think about how I show up to my people. We think sometimes it’s hard to move the needle, making a difference in big topics but it starts with you and me. Our behaviour matters. Our choices and decisions matter. How you and I contribute to the net goodness of the world MATTERS. I always want my values and support to show through my actions. The world is complicated enough without hating or making it hard for others. Spread Love, always and in ALL WAYS. Equality First. 🌈🌈🌈
SOLSTICE STORY: Years ago now I was crazily drawing 4 symbols. They came to me in dreams, in my unguarded thoughts, while hiking & day dreaming until finally at 33 years old - no coincidence there... I walked into a tattoo shop and asked the artist working that day to tattoo them on me.✨🌎 I asked her to place the earth (virgo, ME) symbol next to my left foot, as a reminder that I can always, always come back to my ground with love. I’m safe. ✨🌊 Next I asked her to tattoo the Water symbol (Cancer) on my left arm as water is my soul nourishment, my soothing cleanser, my cocoon of protection and my inspiration and confidence to rhythmically move through this human experience. I am nurturing. ✨💨 I asked her to tattoo the front of my right shoulder, the point that would press forward during times of uncertainty. Here we placed the symbol for Air (Libra). I always, always know, no matter how tough things get, know l can lean in pressing forward making my way through trials. This subtle reminder on my shoulder is a whisper from the Universe always coaxing me through. Fear the Mountian? Lean in, and take a step. I persevere. ✨🔥Finally, Fire. The fire symbol is tattoo’s on my right side, on the crest of my hip bone. Close to my sacral chakra. Fire (Leo) is everything creative, sexual & passionate in me. It’s a reminder of the legacy I bring to this lifetime, the long line of woman behind me, connected with me. Dancing with energy & life. I am passion. ✨As we were just about finished I knew I needed one more.✨♾ Aether. Spirit. Honouring the connection I have to the divine. So many names, Holy Spirit, God, The Universe, Shakti... I believe in ONE, beyond comprehension, interconnected with us all. I asked to have this last symbol ♾ placed in-between my ribs on my back, eventually placing it inside the shell of a scallop. Completely intuitively... waaay before I would begin to understand how important those decisions would be for me in the future. Yesterday as we honoured the turning of the wheel, moving from spring into summer I felt reflective and calm. The elements provide for us. Nourishing, grounding, inspiring, strengthening & evolving. ✨

Pretty lucky to have this guy, my Dad as my example of fatherhood. Unconditionally loving and supportive of us, first my sister and I and now my kids & my family too. He displays loyalty like a lion (even though he’s a softy Pisces🙄) and he’s fiercely protective of his girls. (Well my mom, she’s Scottish so our family does protective well!!) I’ve always respected my dad for all of those things, but among the greatest of all is his work ethic and integrity. There really has never been a task that I didn’t truly believe I couldn’t do. (Even if I flounder around a little bit sometimes for attention👸🏼😂) I’ve got an entrepreneur spirit that I learned from him, and a balanced sense of rules, responsibility & perseverance which I value.. last but not least. “Finish what you start, do your best, no matter the task in front of you.” I’m lucky to have my Dad to lean on and I’m lucky to be deeply loved by a fiancé who reminds me in a lot of ways of those qualities my Dad brings to the world. He too is an exceptional Dad.❤️ 🕺🏽To all my Dad friends, keep showing up and incase no one told you today; great job for unloading the dishwasher ;) #happyfathersday This picture was taken a bijillion years ago when my baby was nearly still a baby. Fishing with Grandpa ❤️

Happy FriYAY! This pic was taken last week at @upside.cider - with my son pictured & my beautiful daughter (not pictured). It’s a pretty awesome place to be when your kids are grown and as humans you love who they are and what they are bringing to the world. I am a proud Mum. These two are the best parts of me. We’ve fought hard to get here. I’m beyond excited to see how they choose to impact as co-creators in their own stories. I am very aware of how quickly time is rushing on, ordinary moments the little ones like these are treasures. ✨ . . . . . . . #momlife #explorekelowna #craftcider #newbusiness #supportsmallbusiness #supportlocal #localproduce #littlebird #learningtofly #humanexperience #mothersofdaughters #mothersofsons #lovemytribe #familytime #letsgrowtogether #exploreing #touristsinourowncity #patioseason
