When I was a little girl I always wanted to do things my own way. I picked out my own outfits at a very young age and sometimes they were … questionable unique. Once I left the house in one orange sock and one green sock to match my orange and green outfit (mum may have made?). I left the house feeling confident and stylish, ready to take on the world. (I was like, 6 or 7.) One of the neighbours said to mum, “you’re going to let her go to school that?”, she replied “if she feels confident she can wear whatever she likes”. Bam. Thanks Mum.
You have always encouraged me to be creative in all the things I do and now as a grown up weird and wonderful woman I could not be happier.
I intended to post this for International Women’s Day but to ME, every single day is a day to celebrate the wonderful women in my life. Two of the most very special people to me today, and forever will always be my beautiful Mum and my sister Jenie. I love them dearly.
Rounded up these images from old posts. This ones for you girls, I love you and you mean the world to me.
Us on the set of American Pie Beta House years ago.
And this is for you too…
For all you other ladies out there, don’t wait for a special day to tell someone you love them. Tell them now!
It was so fun. I love thanksgiving because it’s just about hanging out and hangout out is my favourite. I miss my family in New Zealand. I can’t wait to see Mum. Taking Dad to Canada Rugby final this weekend, VIP.
This is my first actual “long weeeknd” in two years. I have worked every day no matter what day it was. I’m not gonna change much about what I do on the holiday but it changes how I feel.
Thanksgiving Day is a holiday to give thanks for the blessings in one’s life, particularly the harvest. It is a day off work for many Canadians.
Today is Mum’s birthday. I took her on a shopping spree at 3F (I’m on the Board of Directors there) and got her a couple new outfits. The store has a massive sale and you can get 10 items for $100 right now.
We have a meet & greet with The Sheepdogs before the show tonight. I’m stoked to take Mum, Jenie and a few friends thanks to my friends at Canadian Club. Hopefully it’s not too chilly by the water at Echo Beach.
Looking forward to rocking out with my girls tonight! Wahooooo!
