My journey started November 2016 in Washington DC. I was blessed with the best roommate I could have EVER wished for @emmastrandbergh . The day after I met my Kit Cat. For some weird reason I remember the first thing she asked me. She asked me “do you have any pets”, and I knew already then.. that this was the perfect start to an amazing friendship! This whole adventure has been send from god, he wanted us to do this together, he wanted us to witness a truly unique moment.. This is meant to be. From world to the Universe! The Miss Universe finale day came, and I knew from the beginning that Cat was destined for that crown. It’s funny cause I get so emotional when I see her on stage, so no wonder I cried my lashes off when she won! This has been an amazing journey and from day one in november 2016 we were the unbreakable trio as you call us.. but I would rather call it the unbreakable leafed.. this journey would not have been the same without @emmastrandbergh @theniamhkennedy @catriona_gray ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️• To @emmastrandbergh .. thank you for being my sister.
