My dad and I, c. 1995 in Oakland ☀️ | Happy birthday, dad! I'm thankful that you're my father. You've taught me a number of things throughout my life―from climbing impossibly tall trees as a child, working on cars as a teenager, how to successfully work in law enforcement, and how to strive to be a better person each day without giving up. Thank you for being my dad and for being there literally every step of the way. I love you, always. Love, your daughter.
Sophrosyne (n.) a healthy state of mind, characterized by self-control, moderation, and a deep awareness of one’s true self, and resulting in true happiness. - - I can’t believe it’s been almost a year since I moved 2600 miles away from everything I ever knew. Probably one of the best decisions of my life! Jehovah has blessed me so much with everything he has done for me in the past year. No year goes by without hardship and there were some trying moments but I had some amazing people surrounding me. I couldn’t be more thankful for each and everyone of them who have made the past year so wonderful and who helped me grow into a better person. Truly an amazing year and more changes to come this year and I can’t wait! But this past year will always be one of my favorites because it gave me some amazing times and amazing people. So thanks to my Big Island family for truly impacting my life in such a beautiful way. - - Just a few of my favorite moments. - - #ocean#amazing#bigisland#islandlife#beautiful#jw#home#kona#kailuakona#hawaii#wander#adventure#family#travel

Check out my modeling skills 🤪. I have learned how to achieve the perfect beach body. Step 1~ put on suit. Step 2~ find a beach. Life is far to short to worry about the skin we wear. As mother and step mother of 4 daughters, I try to model self love, and that as humans we are more than our coats. That it is our souls and hearts that are the true beauty and reflection of who we are. Life is to short to not put on that swim suit and to dive beneath the waves 🌊 . Life is also far to short to be serious all the time, we need to laugh, and we need to play. Society has set so many unattainable standards on humans, I intend to make my own standards. I will not be a slave to the mundane day in and out. I intend to breath, to laugh, to adventure, to nourish my brain and body, to snuggle, to cry, to fear, to take chances, to forgive, to be creative, to dance, to sing, to pray, to be spiritual, to be passionate, to love, and to be unapologetically M E. #beachbody#bathingsuit#beach#selflove#mother#lovetheskinyourein#hawaii#maniniowalibeach#bigisland#islandlife#konahawaii#gypsy#wanderlust#gypsywanderer#cupshe #cupsheswimwear.
