Any kind of mess making is what Millie is all about 🙌 Yesterday it was sand and ice cream all down the front of her new @raeraehandmade dress 🤣 Don’t forget you can snag the dress tomorrow at the summer drop.
Here's an illuminating fact for ya: Hawksbills are the only reptiles (so far) that are biofluorescent! No, they don't glow in the dark. But if you point the right light at them in the dark, they will glow along with some corals!
That would be something to witness eh? Night dive with a UV light and a glowing spaceship comes into view out of nowhere with a pitch black background 😍🚀 Make sure to get my good side. - Hawksbill
This is one of the two closer-than-usual encounters I had with sea turtles in Perhentian.
So it’s looking like I’ve got some major life changing events on the horizon. This point in my life makes me think back to about 2.5 years ago when I began (not hiking, but hiking a lot more) • This trail itself was the catalyst that opened my eyes and showed me how much that’s out there to see that I had yet to and needed to. So over the past 2 years I, as you can see on here, have began hitting the trails much more frequently. Absorbing as much of nature’s beauty as I could • Within the next months end (July) that window may come to a close for a bit, can’t say I wasn’t anticipating it... I was aware of what was happening. Anyhow, over the next month (starting tomorrow) I have three hiking trips planned. I expect to enjoy them fully and as deeply as possible. I wanted to take this moment to simply say (if you read this far), enjoy the moments you live for... Too many of our days are spent at the office or factory, the mill or wherever it is that you produce an income. We live to get to that next adventure, and sometimes don’t get to soak it all in when we’re in it or on it! Soak it in. Capture those mental photographs, capture those emotional feelings, hold tightly onto the opportunity of travel and exploration. Embrace the blessing it all is! Life is so much a grouping of peaks and valleys (no not an intended hiking pun 😆), by remembering the breathtaking moments, the blessings, the peaks and vantage points, sunsets... the gifts we LIVE for... well, to me it makes the days outside the truly memorable ones have a bigger meaning. The non memorable days that is. The “gas station days”, the days you stock up on fuel for your next adventure and if you focus on the right things those adventurous fuel USING days won’t be too far ahead! ✌️🙏 #tbt .
When you eat as much as we do sometimes it’s essential to take stock of the fact your only wardrobe is the luggage you are carrying!.
There is nothing better than fresh fruit and muesli to start the day especially if the physical activity level is going to be nil as it’s a beach time day.
Happy Friday everyone.

This has been one of the busiest and most stressful summers of my life but going on adventures like this allows me to take a step back, slow down, and find peace ✌🏼 Anyone else enjoy just getting away from it all?👋🏼
The closer we get to moving, the more emo I am remembering all the growing up Hari did here. She started life on a small ranch in east Texas, moved an hour away with me to a big property where she had lots of dog friends to play with, and shortly after moved with me to Austin where we really started our lives together. We’ve had such an amazing time here and it’s hard to believe that time will be coming to an end in just over a month. It’s daunting, but I know it’s just the beginning of all new adventures together 💕#throwbackthursday
this post is a bit vulnerable but I don’t really care. life has been so beautifully full lately and I don’t think I can put it into words. nothing particularly big is happening I can just feel God moving and ordaining space to grow.
I came to this moment in my faith where I had to let go of things that weren’t fostering a healthy future. a failed relationship that was consuming my mind and heart, broken friendships that needed breathing space, and mindsets that God had already freed me from. THIS TOOK 2+ YEARS and it feels so GOOD to freaking let go, allow life to happen and not try to control an outcome. I’m free from past bondage and I just want to sing praises for it. I feel like David in the psalms - thanking God for his faithfulness. I’m out of the storm and flying over the sea. .
advice? hold on hope! seriously hold on. things will get better and God will make a way in the desert. thank you to all my people who held my hand through this process and have continued to love me through it. you all are RAD. ps. perusing a dream of writing + creating art - prayers appreciated.
