I know I've been missing in action, but I've been busy being in love, being loved and loving. I chose to get married in Siem Reap, Cambodia for its eternal well of life. It breathes with love, life and a great history of suffering; you might think why would you want to celebrate love in a place like that, well on a rare occasion like Siem Reap, suffering gives birth to forgiveness, which in turn gives birth to compassion and balance.
Being a Cambodian bride was just what I needed to feel this ceremony of love in its essence. I am blessed to have this love with a man I am sure I was with since the very first glisten of my soul. I will now go on a journey to weld our love together into a massive orb of natural light that we would like to share with the universe.
Will post more of our ceremony soon 🙏🏻
There are approx 15.5 million people in Cambodia !! Wholly smokes! I didn't realize there was that many! •
The people of #Cambodia are called #Khmer and the language is too. The signature Khmer dish is called #Amok which you see on this pic of a random menu I took. I tried #Vegetarian Amok for the first time, it was seriously yummy, reminded me of Thai green curry! Plus I love all things coconut so this had to be a homerun ⚾️⚾️⚾️ •
Oh yea and Cambodia takes both US and Cambodian currency (reil), US currency comes out of the bank machines! That threw me off! Here on the menu the prices are in US, food is so crazy cheap, didn't help my nonstop eating! #cambodia#travelsdiary
As a little girl, I never saw my face in Barbie dolls. I never saw my face in tv shows or magazines. I thought myself unlucky to not look like what was deemed to be beautiful.
But I also remember that I saw my face in the serene smiles of Bayon temples. My chin and my nose in their profile. I saw my own restful face in my grandmother's illustrated pictures of Buddha, the ones that were covered in plastic and pinned to the wall. I saw myself reflected in something ancient.
How very lucky... #pride#khmer#khmerican#beauty#vscocam#cambodian#bayon#temple#naturalframing
