#BOPPA - The Man, The Myth, The Legend...


Dear Dad, 

Not many can say they have a Dad like I do. And today on your birthday I just want you to know, that I truly believe God-Fate-the-Universe-whomever, definitely knew what it was doing, when it decided you were the man to raise me...







And as an added bonus you may just be the best grandpa on the planet - My kids couldn't possibly love or idolize you more...





I mean, come on.




Dad, my life has been thrown plenty of curve-balls & your constant support and positivity has helped me deal with it, as I have. So thank you. You equipped me well. I guess in a way, you kinda showed me what it’s like to live with a Happy Soul, regardless of what life brings your way.



I love you Peter Pan. Happy Birthday...









P.S – Working with you on our mural for the John McGivney Children's Centre in Windsor has been a dream come true. I can’t wait to work together on our Pippy Layne Book Series!



P.P.S – I can’t believe you found the other shoe...




P.P.P.P.S – Stop drinking so much Coca-Cola – I’m serious.



P.P.P.P.P.S - Watch out for this prezzie in the mail!!!

Lend someone YOUR strength...


Day 1263: Today I'm thankful for friends who I am in awe of. 
Today after finding out Theo has croup & talking with a surgeon to book Pip's 11th surgery, I thought, "Holy feck Universe, bloody ENOUGH!"... 


But then the person who lost her little boy to what my baby has, reached out to me & in a way let me borrow some of her strength.



And I think that's the amazing thing about women. We lend everything we got. Literally...



Our bodies, our hearts & our strength. We raise children, scratch that, we miraculously BIRTH human beings. We then give all our EVERYTHING into making them good human beings. We are the GLUE that holds marriages, friendships & families together. And we are POWERHOUSES when it comes to heartbreak, difficulties & challenges in life.

I'm in awe of some women in my life. And I'm so thankful for that.
