to all fearless, inspirational, empowering, kick-ass, groundbreaking women in my life: happy international women’s day xo

i think it's important to take these days of celebration to reflect... seeing how much i have grown with the women i am blessed to have in my life, i truly understand why quality relationships is important! having women in your life to relate to, to push you (in the best way possible), to hold you accountable, to encourage you, to celebrate you, to be an ear, to tell you what you may not want to hear but need to, to laugh with, dream with, go to brunch or grab a coffee with, to dig deep & grow with... i love all my ladies & today i celebrate every single one of you xo

in celebration, i participated in spinco's internation women's ride with zaina, kris & sam (4:30 pm at their downtown location)! for those of you who don't know, michelle august is the founder of spinco, which she started in 2014 when she was only 22 - talk about a kick-ass woman! the ride was in support of ywca. ywca toronto is dedicated to helping women escape and recover from violence, move out of poverty and access housing that is safe and affordable!
