How we feel about our annual #zamirbbq ... cuz we’ve known from the start that our marriage would never be just about us, but about building something bigger than us. And in return, creating community serves as a vital nutrient that waters the garden of our marriage. We are grateful. We are happy. Thank you familia 💘 #casazamir #zamirlove
I was born on the 9th. Nine is the largest and last single digit, representing completeness. When multiplied nine always reproduces itself. Nine is the number of universal love and is linked to the energies of faith and eternity. Nine is the number of magic. It’s a sacred number. In various holy text, nine is the number of perfection, unity and fulfillment. Biblically the number nine has several symbolic meanings including representing patience and the hour of prayer. The Bahá’í symbol is a nine pointed star. For the Hebrews nine is a symbol of truth. I know it has a million other meanings, but today it has significant meaning to me because it also represents 9 years of marriage to a tender hearted, ambitious, supportive, sincere, spiritual, intelligent, funny, service oriented, creative genius. Something about this year feels extra special to me and I’m so lucky to have you in my life Sahab Roshanzamir. Looking forward to many more years with you. Happy anniversary my love! .
#9years #marriageworks #zamirlove
It’s crazy how many times we match without trying. One of the joys of this marriage has been learning about myself and seeing myself in her. She actually reminded once me that the things we are most critical of in others are the parts of ourselves we see in them that we have yet to learn to love (about ourselves). Without getting too wordy here... I love this girl and her quirky artist ways. It should come as no surprise that I am an artist on the inside, and she also has a genius business acumen. #zamirlove #mirrors
My husband doesn’t really like to travel. i know, i know, I’m still processing this, lol! He thinks our home is basically the best place on earth and that anything we want to do somewhere else in the world we can do in LA 🙄😏 Truth is, I think his resistance to traveling is related to trauma but that’s another story for another day. Either way, despite his hesitations, he takes these trips with me 🙏🏾 Where we get to connect with other cultures and disconnect from our daily routine. I woke up around 6am just about every morning. Anyone who really knows me probably has their jaw dropped cuz early morning and I don’t really get along. I got up at that time to fit in all the things I wanted to do. Sam would have been happy chillin in the water every day but I’m a sucker for adventure and I appreciate that he’s always down to explore. We visited a gorgeous botanical garden. Ate fresh bread from an oven built inside a little mountain in the jungle. Saw dolphins and swordfish playing in the ocean. Ate lunch in a river. I mean feet in the water and the table was in the river 😳😱😍 I got stung by baby jelly fish while we were snorkeling. It was the first time in my life I wanted to pee on myself 😂 Held a python for the first and maybe only time. I don’t like snakes but sometimes i push myself past my comfort zone to gain more super powers 🐍💪🏾 We know how to have a good time. We also take some good photos together to capture these special moments we have. But just like many other couples, we still get on each other’s nerves and test each other’s patience. We laughed a lot and we also had some difficult conversations that will hopefully bear good fruit. We are far from a fairytale but we put in work: Practicing heart to heart conversations, daily appreciations and staring into each other’s eyes with love and sincerity. Thanks for being my ride or die boo🌹 .

Sometimes we do elaborate photo shoots on our vacations. Sometimes I capture a moment. For now, here's a moment (check my stories for more). And if you crave photo shoots, don't fret. They're coming. I'm SURE they're coming. #zamirtravels #zamirlove
In a moment like this (late for a flight) the stress can break a person. I took a chance by clowning around. Last thing she said to me when I dropped her off was "thank you for making me laugh." I should have said thank you for not slapping me. We really are custom made for each other. #zamirlove
Been laughing, crying, praying, kissing, traveling, growing and learning about love with this wonderful man for 9 years, and today we celebrate 8 years of marriage. Here's to opening our hearts to receive the blessings of many more years to come. Happy anniversary Sahab Roshanzamir ❤️❤️❤️
You are the best thing 🎶
He is a creative, talented, intelligent, brilliant, silly, tender hearted man. He supports me in ways I never dreamed of and I'm grateful for the way he loves me - just the way I am. We're not big on #Valentines Day per say, but I'm thankful for the excuse to create more sweetness, more connection and more mindful acts of love ❤️ #myfunnyvalentine #marriagerocks #ZamirLove
< insert powerful words about how awesome she is and how much her love means to me >
We star gazed, laughed so hard our cheeks hurt and thanked our new friend Joshua for his trees and for helping us ground to the earth and connect closer with each other. Good times ✨💖🙌🏾 .

I keep telling y'all, she serious about these selfies. They don't just take themselves. We put in work. #zamirlove
his hand on my leg
my hand on his hand
love can transform
the bitter taste
of a wounded world
When we first started dating, we didn't get each other's humor. This was one of the many ways, we really didn't get each other. There were so many things that didn't seem to make sense about marrying this man, and yet I felt such a pull towards him. One could say opposites attract, but it felt like the angels were carving a path - guiding us to connect. I always felt like something greater was drawing us together.
Lately, we can't stop laughing at each other. With each other. We seem to finish each others jokes and smile with new eyes.
This is no coincidence. This is the result of commitment. Of actively learning and practicing how to connect deeper on our journey.
I will never over romanticize marriage. I think our false ideals of what it actually is contributes to so many giving up too soon. This shit ain't easy! But it can also bring so many smiles to your face that your cheeks hurt.
Growing with this man got me believing, experiencing and expecting miracles. My heart is filled with sweetness and tenderness, and I want you to know that I wish that for you too.
For you to find new ways to love the ones you love. To prepare your heart for love to enter, whether you are in a romantic relationship or not, because it's all connected. The way we love ourselves is a reflection of how we love others.
May we love big. May we love deep. May we love with our whole heart ✨❤️

My marriage is kinda like my front lawn. If I let it, it will die. But if I seed it, water it, and nurture it, it will grow. Periodically, I'll have to check on the sprinklers, and maybe even do some maintenance. But I will always get out of it, what I put in. #zamirlove
Yesterday my husband said something to the affect of, "when it comes to our challenges, we have a choice to either see it as destruction, chaos and hopelessness, or we can see it as an opportunity to grow our foundation and become better equipped with the proper tools, to stand strong and powerful in the face of tests - preparing us for something bigger than ourselves....We can see our loved ones behavior as threatening, negative and disempowering, or we can trust that even though their actions don't always feel in sync with ours, that they really want the best for us." ✨
I could write a dissertation on this, but basically I just want to take a moment to honor my husband for all the ways he has grown and shown up for this marriage. I had a session with my favorite medical intuitive this week and she said, "You know how they say, there's no good men left. Well he's a REALLY good man." But being "good" people doesn't mean partnership is easy. You have to put in work. Real work. The kind that can almost make you question everything, if you're not grounded in who you are.
But there's no other person I would choose to do this work with. We are building something beautiful and sacred - while constantly redefining what love looks like. It's not our anniversary, but every day is a day to honor, celebrate and expect the best of intentions from each other. I love you Sahab ❤️ #ichooseyou #marriageworks #zamirlove #tbt #whenwewereyoung
When he said, "God must be giving me credit for something good I haven't done yet." Thanks for bringing in so much laughter and joy into my life. Happy anniversary my love 💞 #weddingvows #7years #marriageworks #ZamirLove
Two weeks a go I got to walk the streets of Marrakech with my hubby. So grateful to have such a loving and supportive partner who travels with me when he can. I never take for granted how he supports my nomadic life even when he can't continue to be a part of it. Missing you Sahab. I'll be home in a few days 💙
We experienced a slice of heaven and we're bringing it back home with us. #nofilter #zamirlove
Always an honor to be of service with my husband. @karmarescueorg + #weloveyouskidrow carnival was amazing!!! What a brilliant idea @justinbaldoni. There was dancing, music and various stations for haircuts, foot bath rubs, massages, face painting, poetry workshops, clothing, blankets, food... you name it! What a blessing to witness and be a part of something so special ❤️ #zamirlove
We had such a good time last time at @karmarescueorg fundraiser. They are doing some truly amazing work! Not only rehabilitating the most loving dogs around and adding sweetness into every day homes, but also adding meaning, purpose and hope for prisoners sentenced for life. We are proud to be connected to and supporting such a wonderful cause!! #karmarescue #pawsforlife #zamirlove
I'm clear that not every marriage is suppose to last, but so many more would if they stuck together through the really hard times. Many view marriage as a sort of fairytale fantasy and not everyone is warned about just how hard it can be. You think you are entering an experience that is gonna melt your problems away, but the truth is, marriage is a magnifying glass that forces you to face your biggest insecurities, fears and inner demons. So often the challenges seem insurmountable and impossible to overcome. The beautiful part is, when you stay kind to each other and committed to gain the necessary tools to help you navigate the journey, you have the opportunity to not only transform yourself in magnificent ways unimaginable, but ultimately the marriage changes because you change. Yet it's so easy to give up too soon, focussing on the problems and pointing the finger, instead of digging deeper into your own work, holding yourself accountable for the ways you can improve this sacred union. And sometimes you just need committed time apart to feel, reflect and take the necessary steps to rejuvenate, keep going and provide a space for healing consultation and forward action. These are some reflections from last night's dinner/spa date with some of the most amazing women I know, who together have over 89 years of martial experience. Sam and I continue to grow and feel the power and magic that love has to offer, but it doesn't always come easy. You have to work for it, protect it and want something bigger and better than you probably have examples of. Your relationship is like a garden that needs constant care, prayer and nurturing. You can't take any fundamental element for granted or it can easily shrivel up and die. For those of you struggling, I'm sending you strength, encouragement and I want you to know that you can win! For as usual, love always wins when you allow her to 💖
Sometimes I wanna push him in a pond, but marrying this man was definitely one of the best decisions I've ever made. Love you joonam, 6 years and counting ❤️
Oh hey Sam! Thanks for coming all the way to Morocco to give me a kiss ❤️
There is something special about being away from the city. Exploring new grounds without focussing on daily responsibilities and random things that can cloud our vision from seeing what's really important. Like being present with loved ones. Right now, in this moment, I am here, I am present with my love 🌺
When we met, he said he doesn't like to travel, but like flowers opening to morning light, this is s l o w l y changing ✨🌺✨
I woke up to a tiny love note from my hubby. We put a note inside the pillow and randomly surprise each other with it at various times. #ZamirLove
Hubby and I went whale watching today. We might look happy, but truth is I was repetitively throwing up and we were both sick the entire ride. This earth sign doesn't do too well on big boats and planes. Well, at least we still got in some quality time.
Just finished an amazing workshop at the University of Spiritual Psychology on the Heart and Art of Relationship. It was so beautiful to witness 100 couples practicing ways to foster more love in their lives. Sam and I experienced emotional intimacy on a level we've never experienced before. We are so excited to use the tools we've gained and to continue to let the light shine on our love ✨💗✨
Brand new music will be played tonight in class, courtesy of my partner in crime and personal DJ Sam Zamir + Bring a new friend to class this week and receive a FREE dance class! See you tonight as we step in the name of love ❤
Last time Sam and I came to the MusiCares Person of the Year gala, Cirque Du Soleil was the opening act. So excited to see who's performing tonight and what they will be serving for dinner, given the value of our $2000 seats. Thanks mom for having such an awesome job and allowing us to benefit from it in so many ways. Feeling so grateful! #GrammyFoundation #MusiCares #Fundraiser #GrammyWeek
A kiss from the DJ 😘
Hubby and I celebrate 4 years today! What are we doing you ask Oh just dancing in Afro-Hip Hop. See ya tonight as we sweat in the name of love ❤
4 years a go I knew that I married a wonderful man. I didn't know all the details, like how supportive he would be of my dreams and how hard he would work to nurture my happiness. You are my perfect test and at the same time more than a dream come true. Happy anniversary babe!
Thanks for staying up till 3am when you usually wake at 6am. #RealLove #Grateful
Happy New Year from the Zamir's!
Me and my sweet Sam ❤
Happy anniversary Sam joon! 3 years and counting ❤
