I am a huge advocate for self-love! In 2004 I had a formal Self-Engagement Ceremony, where I pledged all parts of myself would work together for the good of the whole me.

I celebrate the anniversary of my Self-Engagement every year, often going out for a special dinner with myself at the Keg Mansion here in Toronto. I went on to have a beautiful self-marriage in August of 2011.
