Millions of people will travel home for the holidays, but so many members of our LGBTQ+ community feel they can’t go home as their true selves, because they don't feel accepted. 😔
I remember going home for my first Christmas after coming out. I had only recently told my parents I was dating Sam, over the phone, and this would be the first time I was seeing them in person. I was terrified. How would they react? Would they treat me differently? 🤷🏻‍♀️
At this point, being newly out, I felt like I needed to conform to what I saw in the media as a stereotypical lesbian. I thought I should no longer wear dresses, I should cut my hair, and I should overall dull my femininity to prove I was gay.
Of course, those are things that make me ME, and going home wearing flannels and beanies, instead of sparkly dresses and bright painted nails, made me scared that people would think I’d really changed. I didn’t feel like myself, and I didn’t want to change who I was or what I looked like just because I was dating a girl.
Luckily, there were only a few joking comments about my style change that Christmas, and I quickly grew to realize that I did not have to change myself in ANY way, shape or form to fit anyone else’s opinion of who or what I should be.
Both Sam and I feel very fortunate to have families who accept and support us, but we know so many people who do not have supportive families and that the holidays can be really tough. 😔
@Pantene, @GLAAD and the @TransChorusLA created an absolutely fantastic video (that made us sob!), which sheds lights on a really important and really real issue that so many people are struggling with over the holidays.
Head to the link in our bio to watch, and give your LGBTQ+ family members (biological and chosen!) an extra big hug this holiday season! 🧡
And remember, you are loved, you are perfect and beautiful just the way you are and you don’t need to change! 🙌🏼

Chapter 20: Paros, Greece 🇬🇷
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
WE’VE GOTTEN APPROVED 🙌🏼
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Saying that aloud makes us even more happy than we were sailing through the Greek islands!! ⛵️ 🌊  As many of you know, we’ve been in the midst of the visa process so we can finally be together  once again and be in the same country for more than 90 days 😜 Although we’re not ready to share all of the details yet, we got our first approval yesterday from the state so now things will *hopefully* move along a bit more quickly 🤞🏼🙏🏼 Now it’s off to wedding planning 👰🏻 💕👰🏻 and apartment hunting! 🏡 Any suggestions?! ⬇️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Last year we spent some of the time leading up to Christmas in California! It was weird being Christmassy in the warm weather 😂 Christmas is a time to be cozy inside while it snows folks 😉 ❄️
•
Christmas is the only time I appreciate the cold, so we booked a spontaneous trip somewhere warm for the start of January to soak up the sun and RELAX after all the Vlogmas and Christmas madness. Any guesses where we are going? (you might know if you’re all caught up on Vlogmas 😉 🎄)

‘Good thing you didn’t get attached.’ He wasn’t a puppy. Jensen was my child, my sweet baby. I’ll always be attached.’: Mother recalls rude comments she’s heard since her son was stillborn, ‘Do not compare anything to losing a child’ -- “‘Isn’t it time for you to be moving on?’ No. I will never move on. My child died, it’s not like I lost an earring. You don’t just pick up and move on to the next thing. ‘God wanted him more.’ This did not comfort me. My doctor said this. He didn’t call Jensen a him, he actually said, ‘God wanted it more.’ My son is not an it.” Powerful full story in our bio link and on LoveWhatMatters.com ❤️⁠

‘You may not be her first,She loved before she may love again. 🍀
But if She loves you now, what else matters? She's not perfect—you aren't either, and the two of you may never be perfect together 🍀but if She can make you laugh, cause you to think twice, and admit to being human and making mistakes, hold onto her and give her the most you can.’ - Bob Marley 🍀

When I was growing up, Christmas morning there was one rule in my house. My brother and I could open our stockings, but we couldn’t  touch any presents until the whole family was up. Every year there would be new items in my stocking, but there were always two staples: 1 - chocolate covered cherries and 2 - @mmschocolate. So naturally M&M’s have been a tradition and I was so excited to bring home these holiday M&M's dispensers. Not just for Christmas morning, but for the entire holiday season. The funniest thing when I showed the kids, our daughter said,

The funniest thing when I showed the kids, our daughter said, "look it’s a Santa Potato!” Something so iconic for me is just the start for my little ones. And being the sweethearts that they are, they asked if we could get one for their Nana and Grandpa’s house. Either that’s the most thoughtful thing ever, or they are just geniuses and want to make sure they have a stash at their house when visiting!

Love is the answer. Love is stronger than hate. You can speak out! You can talk against injustices, but if you don’t have love, if your not motivated by love you are a resounding  gong or a clanging symbol. You are bankrupt without love.
