Sharing ourselves completely with our partner, we begin to shine light into all of the areas of ourselves that we have shrouded in darkness, making the seemingly unlovable, lovable once more. This is what it means to love unconditionally.

Molly wrote on her Instagram, “It’s crazy to think that only three years ago I was a cancer patient, seeing doctor after doctor in New York…”
“…When I think of where I’ve been in comparison to where I am now, I know for sure that anything is possible, that dreams do come true. I know that hitting bottom makes life at the top that much sweeter, that without the lows the highs would be meaningless.”

They saw jungles and ancient temples together…
They played in the sand.

They made new friends.
