Current Update: Jen had the privilege of serving as her sister’s Maid of Honor on August 2nd at the Darlington House in La Jolla, San Diego. Aunts, Uncles, and cousins from both sides traveled near and far to partake in the celebration. She’d never had so much family in one place!! It was a lovely event, and her sister made a beautiful bride. In her speech, Jen talked about how even though they weren’t always the best of friends growing up, her sister has given her the strength and courage to pursue her dreams. Jen is very thankful for the friendship they have now, and for the incredible brother-in-law she has brought into the family.

A few weeks later, Jen went on a fun adventure to South East Asia. During her adventure, she visited a total of four countries and eight different cities spending anywhere from eight hours to five days in one place. Her stops included Hanoi, Ha Long Bay, and Hoi An in Vietnam, Siem Reap, Cambodia, Krabi, Ko Phi Phi Island, and Phuket in Thailand, and Seoul, Korea.

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that others won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” ~Marianne Williamson
