tumblr_muf487A8Aw1qlz0x8o1_500 HEY loves! I'm BACK. It's been a journey and I've simply needed this time to say goodbye to family, friends, my hometown and a year of MAJOR healing + growth and to move forward to my new home + city: Toronto.

In any case, I want to speak about happiness, because when we peel away all the layers life truly is all about LOVE + HAPPINESS. Where and who would we be without the two?

So I'm reminding myself during this transition of these simple + small points, because happiness is found by enjoying the small things in life all while chasing after the big ones. Take life one step at a time, breathe, and enjoy the journey.....
