This is a travel post. I am currently on a month-long road trip with mum, across the USA to Minnesota and back home again to Vancouver, Canada. We are staying with friends, family and our tent along the way. Originally she was supposed to do this trip on her own but after I had my heart smashed into a million pieces AND simultaneously suffered a mental health crisis, she invited me with her and I figured it was pretty much the best idea ever. I was not wrong. We've had a ton of wonderful experiences together already and I know there's only more to come. 

The photos in this post are from the beginning of the trip, when we stayed with raaad friends on Bainbridge Island near Seattle. There were wild apple trees and berry bushes everywhere, tons of nourishing meals made from scratch enjoyed around the fire, mud masks on the beach, and a lovely kitty. It was a magical few days that were ripe with spiritual power and emotional rawness, sisterhood, non-judgement and healing. 

I am rebuilding my self - heart, soul, body, mind and everything else that makes up a person - slowly, painfully and gradually. But I AM doing it. And it feels liberating. Now with clarity in my mind and dried tears on my cheeks, I honestly feel I am better on my own. Being single is the best thing I can be right now: growing in self love and self trust, being around strong women, meditating and living fully. I'll leave you with some photos now... delicious moments on Bainbridge Island.
