“We” to “I” // Jun 2022


“You can cut all the flowers, but you cannot keep Spring from coming”

Pablo Neruda

After 8 beautiful years together, we have decided to go our separate ways. It was a difficult decision we didn’t think we’d ever have to make, but we have realized that life is precious and if there is an opportunity to live a happier, healthier life, we should take it. Over our unique relationship, we developed the utmost respect for one another and wish each other the very best as we adjust to our lives as individuals. As we close one chapter and open another, we hope you’ll continue to support us in this new journey.

Being that this is my blog, I’ll now take the time to share a few notes about the journey we had as a couple.

Meeting at a coffee shop in Seattle in the summer of 2014 was a clear memory that I recall fondly. It was a meeting that was full of lengthy and intriguing conversation, getting to know one another and fascinated by the very different worlds we lived in: me the extroverted business woman and him the introverted software engineer. We didn’t think it was a romantic match until 5 months later and from there a wonderful life adventure began. We eventually got engaged in Nov 2016, got married in Jan 2017, and celebrated our marriage in March 2018.

I look back at the past 8 years with peace, knowing that we loved each other deeply, did our best to take care of one another, and prioritized doing things that would make us happy. With our marriage now coming to an end, I know that we will be okay and will remain unique friends who will continue to support each other as we go through life separately.

How great it is to have experienced a love so pure and I am so appreciative of John for sharing his life with me and letting me into his incredible world. My wish is for him to live his happiest, best life!

As for me, I’ll continue to also live my best life with my girl Wonton—respecting this unique time to reflect, adjust, and be me. Outside of this life change, everything else surrounding me is thriving and I am incredibly grateful to have this balance in a challenging time. I’ll be eating, praying, and loving. I’ll be reconnecting and renewing. I’ll be spending a lot of time enjoying the great outdoors and exploring parts of the world I’ve never been to. I know in my heart this is the best decision we could make and I will continue to be a love lover! It’s one of the only kinds of magic we can experience as humans and something I know takes form in many ways. I look forward to what’s ahead and experiencing this life I get to live with the wisdom I’ve been given, resilience I’ve built, and love I have felt from many.

Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature. It will never fail you. —Frank Lloyd Wright
