Who Am I?

 

The middle child in a family of 3 boys, I grew up in St. Catharines, Niagara. I have a loving family who have been my biggest support through all of my life. I currently live and work in Kitchener, and love exploring this wonderful community.

I love music, and usually have country or alternative playing. It’s coffee in the mornings, and wine at night. Between gardening and cooking, I’m usually watching reruns of Friends, or exploring a new Netflix original. I’m sarcastic to a fault, and have enough dad jokes to even make him embarrassed of me.

Life is challenging. Laughing at it is not.

 
 

Love is Easy

To me, love is that feeling my little niece falls asleep on my chest; and the smell of what grandma has cooking when I visit. It’s a song on the radio that reminds me of when my best friend made me laugh so hard I spit out my wine. Or a text message from dad saying “thanks for the visit”.

Love grows in gardens. It dances to a great beat. Wipes your tears when you’re sad, and bandages you when you’re hurt. If you ever need love, you can see it in a head-nod of a stranger walking by. You can smell it from outside a bakery, or hear it at the playground.

Love exists literally everywhere, and we can miss it if we’re not looking. I love celebrating love and how it brings a community together to cheer as two people - any two people - hold hands and promise each other their hearts.
