After quite the journey, I’m back in Canada, my hometown of Vancouver. Anyone who knows me knows how much I love home… hence my tattoos of sparrows that symbolizes always returning to where you come from. My family is everything, and nothing could have helped me along the way as much as my family and friend’s support (except maybe for all of the wine–just kidding–kind of).
I’ve always been a big fan of traveling, and after going through a season of The Bachelorette on the heels of my stint on the Bachelor, I definitely felt TOTALLY alone at times. But thanks to this crazy technology we have these days, I was able to check in and re-ground myself throughout some of the tougher moments (enter Ian– but we’re over that).
In my time as the Bachelorette, a lot of people asked me about my fashion choices, and wanted to stay updated on what I’ll be up to. Even though I NEVER would have imagined being a fashion inspiration (like…what?! I feel like some days I’m wearing two left shoes), I wanted to share my finds with you all, and to create a space for you to check in with me. I can’t tell you how much your support has meant to me during this time, and I truly want to return the favour, somehow (even if that means attempting to give you fashion advice).
Here’s to always flying back where we belong, and in the words of the incomparable Kenny Chesney, always remember to ‘get it while you can, take it to the limit, live out every single minute while you’re in it!’
