There are no words for the joy I feel when I think of this human.
Talent, heart, style, fight, and the same teenage boy humour seeping out of the cracks of her professional façade. I've been inspired by Lyndsay for a very long time. She was in some random class with me back in 2006-2007 when we were at Emily Carr. She did some sort of music piece. I recognized her again in Real Weddings magazine and so began the creeping until our friendship blossomed into what it is today.
To have been a single ribbon woven into the fabric of her life is a humbling honour. To have someone I admire so much trust me with photographing her family, her work, her scary face-off with breast cancer and now her book launch is one of my greatest joys in my life. I don't know how she does what she does and I tell her this often. I admire how she maintains her genuine awesome self, how she has stayed grounded and ever dedicated to her family and friends. I admire her honesty and I have forever been touched by the consistent messages of support and laughter I receive from her.
The making of this book is such a huge achievement. I am so damn proud of this woman and all she has been through. I am thankful for her life everyday as I scroll through her feeds, knowing how precious this life is. I am so thankful she is still here with us to spread her creativity and her laughter.
You are a shining star, Lyndsay, and I wish you a long joyful life of continued success!
