A source of Oneness. A source of Love.

I think with every year of life, our desire to understand our “why’ has to increase. I learned a long time ago that someone’s “why” is their purpose for living. For doing. For being. Tomorrow I turn 31 years old, and to say I have asked myself “why” for the past decade, is an understatement.

The beginning of iP & my “thank you’s”

As my first blog post, I would like to say thank you. Thank you to everyone who has ever supported Imperfectly Perfect,  myself, and my partner Arin.
