Hello everyone, it's been awhile since you've heard from me as I have no longer been able to keep up with the blog since having Faith. Our social media grew to a whopping 150 thousand followers on Tik Tok and I no longer have the capacity to keep up with this website or our you tube channel on top of being a mother.
That being said, I know that there are a few of you who are not on any form of social media who relied on my monthly email to keep following our journey. So many fantastic things have happened in the last 6 months and we have a wedding coming up on April 2nd, so I wanted to update you.
Here's what's been going on -
In October we travelled to Costa Rica with the intention of building our wellness retreat center here, and possibly moving. We had never been to Costa Rica before, and we weren't sure what to expect. Everything about Costa Rica exceeding our expectations, and we quickly made many new friends. We had a few Tik Toks go viral the first week we were here and they really opened up some windows for us.
In November I received a Facebook message from a yoga instructor in Calgary connecting me to a woman who is building a community in Costa Rice. The community was just 1 hour from where we were staying, and we ventured in an Uber to come stay for a few days. We quickly fell in love with this community, and it felt like home. We purchased a plot of land and began designing apartments for our wellness retreat center.
While all of this was going on we somehow managed to finish our first book. It is called 'Friendship Love Autism' and will be available for presale in April. We've had an amazing time here in Costa Rica and we are excited to finish our trip off by getting married here in our new community (next to our land). We will be heading back to Calgary April 10th to launch our book and get our affairs in order before we head back to Costa Rica in the fall.
I'm writing this email mainly to let you knw that we will be live streaming our entire wedding online. it begins at 11am Costa Rica time Saturday April 2nd. The ceremony should start around 11145-12 o'clock, but we will live stream the whole day on Facebook and TikTok. If any of you feel like hopping on a plane to come celebrate with us please let me know and we will make room for you!
We will be posting many videos of the event afterwards, but I know many family members have expressed an interest in watching the live stream. My Facebook account is public so if you have a friend that could possibly log you on to watch it will be easy to watch on my Facebook profile (Michelle Massicotte). Or if you wish to download the tik tok app you could follow us @MichelleandAndrew and watch. You do not need to upload anything or post videos to be able to watch our wedding live.
I'm attaching our link which has all of our social media links as well as our wedding registry attached. michelleandandrew.bio.link
If you wish to contact us, the email on that link is the best way to do so, Michelleleapreston@gmail.com
Big things will be happening soon with Bellamima Lifesyles, I just need to launch this book so I have some money to hire an assistant! Wish me luck :)
We miss you all and we hope you are doing well, Enjoy the videos
