In this picture you are witnessing one of the happiest moments of my life. I am with the man of my dreams and my new sister who I love dearly @brookiebrash. She comes from a long line of powerful women. She carries potent and magical ancestral knowledge. She is the embodiment of femininity, kindness and grace. In the last 6 months that I have known her - she has helped me remember the meaning of true reciprocal friendship. I thank the universe that @jordyburrows brought her into my life. I am honored to know you and do life with you, my sweet, sassy Cleopatra (The Pooch) 🌹🌹🌹 also... thank you to to @diane_maloney for the wedding gift of the disco helmet I am wearing. I wore it at my wedding after-party and it brought so much joy to people during my sunrise boogie. This was actually my favorite look of the whole burn - i coined it “Space Yeti” and it was also brought to life by the incredibly talented @milena_silvano. Your jackets carry so much sacred nourishing energy. It was an honor to bring your special piece to the playa this year. Now, it’s time for 🚀 !!!
UNTIL NEXT YEAR!
