Love has been our friend since the days before the Garden of Eden. We have watched her move through huge changes including losing her huge body, over 100 pounds, gain muscle and grow stronger within while bravely moving through a difficult divorce and managing family challenges.
Through it all, Love always rolls off a dorky joke from her sharp tongue. She's super friggin' funny, daily keeping us laughing. Love is very pun-ny.
This woman is ridiculously skilled at so many things. Regularly we are blown away with the consistently amazing food she prepares on our outdoor, fuel free and sustainable rocket stoves and cob oven. Her gardening talents, in addition, have heavily contributed to the abundance and beauty of our gardens. We look forward to accessing her vast fashion and art background soon.
Love, once she lost the weight, moved to California to get to know her son who was adopted at birth then reunited at age 21, bringing along her youngest of 3 daughters. Later, traveling alone, she ventured into the jungles of Central America, discovering the beast within. Meeting street artists, street performers, working in hostels, living with locals as well as traveling to remote islands and living with the indigenous are just a few of the vast and mind blowing fireside stories she has to share.
Although she is known as the "bitch" in the group we appreciate her never exhausting ability to laugh at herself. By just being herself she helps many of us face our "mom issues" while simultaneously looking within at her own "mom stuff" in all its vast forms.
Always an inspiration, no matter where Love is or what she is doing, she is alive, processing life and continually raising her own vibration, setting an example of the possibilities for those around her. Watching her move through obesity, a painful divorce, high anxiety, depression and just keep evolving, become more loving and beautiful everyday is truly an inspiration to us all. "Thaynk You Jeysus for Love" ;)
