4 Days 4 Hours Ago

What an incredible 11 year journey it has been. Filled with laughter, wonderful moments traveling the world and surfing. Weekends filled with the Arts, human rights protests and lots and lots of dancing. Thank you for reminding me how to truly live an authentic life. Happy Birthday Month to my brilliantly talented 11 yr old Océan.

Today's talk at the 4th Annual TIHP Interprofessional Practice Conference discussing the challenges of navigating the system as a mother of a deaf child was heavy hearted and raw. But this smile is one of gratitude. I'm forever grateful for the opportunity to share my experience and offer policy and a strategic advice on ways to better support parents and caregivers of HOH & dDeaf kids in Ontario.

Knowing that someone you love, is forever by yourside, supporting and comforting you throughout life's challenges; has got to be the the best feeling in the entire world. #lovelikebutterflies

I have been blessed to mother two incredibly brilliant daughters and as they evolve may they always know that they're not alone and that mommy loves them unconditionally till the end of time. #lovelikebutterflies #loveyouforever #loveyouforalways #singlemom #motherhood #preteen #hair #blackhair #natrualhair #motherhood #lgbtq

I feel like I’ve been living in a world of beige since I moved into my new place. I’m pretty sure it hasn’t been painted since the 90s or possibly the 80’s🕺🏼🕺🏼so desolately needs a #facelift! I’m not great at picking colours, but decided to go with a soft gray after speaking with #powellpainting. I have a lot of colourful things that will look great against the neutral background. I’m looking for a colour to compliment a piece of art and this pretty little container. PS - I chose another colour and will share the before and after pics soon. #addcolourtoyourworld #painting #colourchoices #colour #addsomecokourtoyourworld #yvrblogger #blogger #bethedifference #truth #teachers #teacher #positivevibesonly #mindandheart #girltribe #jointhegirltribe #spiritjunkie #myunicornlife #motivation #inspiration #positivespin #positive #staypositive #lovethesewords #loveit #truedat #instagram #instagrammers #lovelikebutterflies

Always be your biggest fan, your very own champion. Never get lost in someone elses memories of you or their desires of who you are or should be. #lovelikebutterflies #gaslighting #lovemesomeher #selflove #selfcare

Every picture in this set makes me laugh uncontrollably These best friends are the epitome of Black and Indigenous solidarity. They have been holding hands and walking down one of the busiest streets in Toronto since they were able to walk. Some days even in the middle of winter they stop mid stride, hold both hands and dance. #bffgoals

I had to push back the launch of my practice and I'm so grateful for the people in my life who have been so gracious, patient and loving. In a city this big you wouldn't believe that the current wait times for Sexual Health and Therapeutic Support (SHTS) is well over 6 weeks. My wait list for clients is open and has already began to grow steadily. Theres a saying "nothing is done before its time" and it's due time I work on transforming my anxious heart into one which gives grace, space and tenderness to the one it beats to sustain. As the only Black, queer, trans*, SHTS practitioner in Toronto, I have an acute understanding of survial within the margins; and I couldnt be more excited to start up my practice and get this show on the road but first #selfcare . Keep your ear to the ground and eyes peeled for my launch date and opening celebration. #lovelikebutterflies

Love seeing all the #art in my community!! This is a storage container (I’m assuming for earthquake supplies) behind a high school. I’m sure it was pretty nasty when it arrived, but love the #popofcolour at the back of the school! #artwalk #love #storagecontainerart #yvrblogger #blogger #bethedifference #truth #teachers #teacher #positivevibesonly #mindandheart #girltribe #jointhegirltribe #spiritjunkie #myunicornlife #motivation #inspiration #positivespin #positive #staypositive #lovethesewords #loveit #truedat #instagram #instagrammers #lovelikebutterflies

I understand the tendency of parents who want to lock their little girls away, I've heard the jokes about needing to buy a rifle, especially from parents who have survived abuse. I empathize because, even I have moments clouded by fear. It is in these moments that I feel the need to control every aspect of everything in my life and my children's. . But thats not, the mother I want to be or choose to be. It is my desire to raise my kids with freedom that allows respect and dignity to flourish. The autonomy to be adventurous and make mistakes and the wisdom to learn not only from their own mistakes but of others around them. And the knowledge that mommy will always love you. This is 10yr old Ocean, May she always be strong, resilient and free to be her truest self.

This is my dad, teaching my youngest how to swim. He was determined to survive cancer long enough to not only meet her but to also teach her to swim like he taught me. He faught hard for the moment you see in this picture and he continues to fight. Today we got good cancer news and even though chemotherapy and radiation has left him with other health conditions; today is a good day. Today we celebrate!! #fuckcancer #lovemesomehim #blackdads #daddy

This video has no sound, it is filled with pure #blackgirlmagic as #sweetbabyella signs "hi daddy" At twenty seven months old and she now communicates fluently in her first language, ASL. Often times she uses both English and ASL simultaneously to support native English speakers. . . #lovemesomeher #lovelikebutterflies #daddysgirl #deafculture #deaf #motherdaughter #asl @unionhearingaidcentre @phonak

Raising joyful kids for me has meant re-prioritizing what I treasure. Case in point, this week I'm shopping for a new dining table and my macbook pro is at the genius bar for 5 days, after being obliterated by my lovely and super well behaved but adventurous daughters - had a bit of fun lol Broken table: $750 Broken laptop: $1530 Raising joyful kids: Priceless
