I was focused on the volcano at first, then turned around to catch the setting sun...to find Patrick down on one knee. It was an easy 'yes' to give, but not because it's been an easy year. We've supported each other through an intense amount of change, with our fair share of ups and downs. Through it all, we've been able to grow together, blend our families, and demonstrate our commitment regardless of whether circumstances are great or otherwise. We appreciate everyone who has stayed close to us this year, and supported us unconditionally. We have so much to look forward to in 2018 and beyond 💖

#engaged #2017 #family This Saturday is my last author book signing event for 2017!! I'm so happy to be doing it close to home, in my community of #Wellesley #Ontario, just outside of #Kitchener #Waterloo. Many thanks to Carey of @lucypearlle (the most beautiful vintage and artisan store in the area!) for hosting this event on my behalf.

I would love to sign a copy of my book for you, or someone in your life who may need a little extra encouragement 💖 I wrote the manuscript for this collection of poetry last Boxing Day, after coming through a very challenging time. I hope this story, expressed through short poems, is uplifting for anyone else who may be going through a tough season of life.

If you're able to make it out on Saturday, let me know and I'll keep an eye out for you!
