Eileen and I have posted a video revealing our ages yesterday and we are SO happy and SO grateful for all your love and support! You are truly wonderful! And I always knew how wonderful you are, but right now I feel so emotional about the great amount of support we are getting from you. We love you!!! ♥️

Taking three full weeks off has been productive on so many levels.
In terms of my brand and work I’m getting new ideas which you can’t get when you’re “IN IT” day to day.
On a personal note, it’s given me time to listen to my heart and body. Develop my friendships, take time to love people and take care of grounding my body through movement and recovery.
And lastly of course it’s been good for our family. Particularly for my connection with Brooklyn. In the last years I’ve carried a lot of guilt about working a lot and therefore not being present like Jen is but I’m realizing that I need a different approach in how I speak to B about my work. Instead of “I HAVE to go to work” I’m going to say “I WANT to go to work” and take more time to explain to her what I do and how I help people be strong and confident instead of work being simply something that takes me away from her. I want to empower her to know that work is good and that it can lead to change, positivity and achieving our dreams.

We are going to see our family in Alaska this weekend and we couldn’t be more excited!😍
A countdown of my favorite memories from 2018 would not be complete without a mention of Lu and I’s double proposal. At the start of this year, we knew we wanted to be engaged, so we decided that both of us would do a proposal. Neither one of us wanted the other to miss out on a chance to plan a proposal or be proposed to, so we said to hell with it, why not do 2?? We decided that we would surprise each other with the timing, location, and ring choice!
I proposed first at @atlbotanical in July and she proposed in Boston in October! Both of us were completely surprised, making both of us these weekends a huge success. Both of us even nailed the ring size and style! (Thank you @charles_colvard for helping both of us pick the STUNNING rings we get to wear so proudly every day!)
Getting engaged to this beautiful woman was definitely a huge highlight of my year. She’s the best thing that has ever happened to me every single day of every single year. I will always look back on this year incredibly fondly when I think about the fact that 2018 was the year I committed my life to the most incredible, brilliant, loving woman in the universe.
