🙈🙉🙊 . Thankful for these two ladies I get to call roomies. We each are our own busy so it’s always nice when we can get together, especially to celebrate the good times. I don’t get to say it enough in person, but as different as we are in personalities, there are traits that are similar I can admire in both - the spark of the hustle, the glimmer of creative minds, strong leadership initiatives and deep down sincere hearts. Thanks for accepting me with my food photo craze and taking this photo with me hehe.. Here’s to our first year of living and a cheers to our next! . . . #thankful #roomies #celebrate #goodtimes #differentbutsimilar #laughter #smiles #hustle #creative #strong #sincere #girls #toronto #vsco #vscotoronto #exteriordesign #white #pink #ootd #october #latergram

When we don’t respect ourselves, we can easily be dishonest with others. This allows for little transformation in our lives. We have to practice speaking things we want to be TRUE if we want to see it happen. . . . #mondaymotivations #inspiration #cafecancan #interiordesign #floral #restaurantdesign #pink #torontorestaurants #torontofoodie #foodie #vsco #vscocam #vscodesign #vscotoronto #october #latergram #thatsdarling #love

The first frost has hit Toronto! ❄️ As the days become darker and colder, we must gear up - not only in our layers of clothing but also in our minds and hearts! Life ain’t always easy but let us build on our mental toughness and share our heart struggles, to keep us in the light of hope. It may surprise you to meaningful conversations and life-giving chats. Reach out to someone today, give them a word of encouragement, listen to what they have to say - you may discover something new about that person and yourself! . . . #fridayfeels #firstfrost #vulnerability #meaningful #lifechats #accountability #knowledge #mentaltoughness #heartstruggles #light #hope #encourage #listen #allwhite #outdoors #design #marble #stripes #patio #torontorestaurant #torontofoodie #foodie #vsco #vscotoronto #cafecancan #frenchbistro #motivation #inspiration #lovely #thatsdarling

D e v o u r the prey in the morning; d i v i d e the spoil in the evening. . “There’s an old person down inside of you depending on you to be smart. It’s the person you’re going to be 30-40 years from now. Do not disappoint that person by being foolish through the strongest years of your life.” We are young N O W.

YEAR 28 | 🌅 A special thank you. From a point of low confidence and uncertainty to slowly building a level of emotional healthiness, you've allowed me space to rediscover myself and the dream, while still being a presence of support. Thank you for taking the step of courage and patience in this journey with me. May God continue to be our trust and joy in our lives. . . . #thankyou #birthday #reflection #courage #rediscover #dream #confidence #trust #joy #faith #toronto #sunset #skyline #waterfront #september #viewsofthe6ix #vsco #vscocam #latergram

CHICAGO | Day 3 . LEADERSHIP begins with a DREAM 💭 FEAR is the destroyer of that love. 💣 Being brave is gonna be hard, but if you want those dreams to survive 1) we must be relentless with keeping inventory of our fears 📝 2) switch from playing defence to offence 🤾🏻‍♂️🤾🏻‍♀️3) forge a community of courage around us ✊🏻- Gary Haugen . . . #chicago #willowcreek #gls17 #leadership #dream #overcome #fear #takecourage #bebrave #relentless #offence #inspiration #motivation #hope #hopebeyondfear #influence #milleniumpark #night #citylights #fountain #explore #adventure #reflection #lifestory #faithstory #vsco #vscocam #vscochicago
