Dear Loren,

Dear Loren, My heart hurts as I write this, and even though it has been so long since you left us, for reasons I can’t seem to explain, it hits different this time.  I don’t know – perhaps I’m feeling more emotional today cause it’s just a crazy time right now. This has been THE... Continue Reading →

drie jaar geleden.

damn, it has MOST DEFINITELY been a minute since I’ve written a post. The last I checked I wrote a blog post in APRIL 2019!! THAT WAS MORE THAN A YEAR AGO! Wow, how could have I gone so long without writing. I mean okay, let’s be real for a second though, this is not... Continue Reading →

Dear Loren,

Dear Ate Loren, Wow, another year gone by already. The years just seem to be coming by faster and faster. But here we are, 18 years today since you left us, and the memory of you still lives on. So much has happened since I last wrote to you, since I last thanked you for... Continue Reading →

trust the pause.

It’s been almost three months since my accident, and I can’t even begin to describe how much my life has changed over the past twelve weeks. It’s been a time of healing & growing, a time of rest & relaxation, and most of all a time to just pause. For the first time ever in... Continue Reading →

Dear Loren,

Dear Loren, I don’t even know where to begin… well, I guess I should start by saying thank you (if I haven’t already said it enough times...) Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you for protecting me. Thank you for saving me. This week has been incredibly emotional for me, and I’ve felt your... Continue Reading →

the unfolding.

Alright, well it’s December 31st, the last day of 2018, and I’m currently sitting on my sister’s couch in downtown Calgary, finally getting around to writing this blog post. It’s been a very quaint holiday thus far, and today’s the first day I haven’t left the house since my arrival in this part of the... Continue Reading →

the next right move

It’s been over two months since my last blog post, and to be completely honest, up until a week ago, I wasn’t really in a space where I felt comfortable to share, nor was I inspired to write. The last few months have been filled with just a slew of emotions, with some days better... Continue Reading →

on the eve of my 27th birthday.

Dear Loren, You have no idea how much spending my birthday with you this year means to me. This past year has been such a whirlwind; filled with so many new experiences, new people, and new emotions. If you would have told me last year that I’d be spending my next birthday in the Philippines... Continue Reading →


“When I began trusting the intuitive pulls of my soul my life transformed. It wasn’t that my life was necessarily bad before.. it’s just that it started to get really amazing. The more I leaned into uncertainty, and the unknown, the more my heart and soul expanded. Growth and love both require that we move... Continue Reading →

Dear Loren,

Dear Loren, 16 years. I can’t believe it’s been 16 years since you left us. It’s hard to believe that all this time has passed. It seems so long ago, and yet I still remember everything that happened in 2002 like it was only yesterday. I still remember picking up that phonecall to Kuya’s panicked... Continue Reading →
