Circa 2017, New Jersey Winter...
God put a big dream in my heart and I had to let go of a lot: my comfort of stability and my career. I was like how can I be successful in this world without those things?
God knows I want a big business so I can retire Chris, He knows I want to marry Chris, He knows I want my Chelsea apartment in NYC, He knows I want to lead my family to Christ, He knows, He knows, He knows...
But in order to get these things I had to take a humble jump and let it all go. I had to be obedient To Him. My way was getting me no where fast. So like a child who needs guidance by their parent, He took me off my current course and onto my desert (island) where I am now.
All not for nothing, for He is showing and teaching but what I had to go through to get there is a journey within itself...(to be continued)

3 weeks is all it takes 👌🏻 i can post all the motivational quotes, show you all the crazy transformations, invite you to my accountability groups BUT you’re the one that has to step up and accept the challenge 🙏🏻 i can give you a meal plan, recipes, a workout program to do at home, a shake that will change your life, and a badass group of ladies that will become like family - you just have to want to change more than you want to sit on the couch and binge Netflix 🔥 and luckily you still have time to commit to the new you before 2019 comes 💃🏼 let’s do this!!

Ran a marathon in paradise ✔️ In January I was in Waikiki training for my first half marathon, now almost 1 year later, I am back in the same city and just completed my second full marathon! Running 26.2 miles was so challenging, but it was serendipitous to crush this goal! 2018 has been a great year for reminding myself that I can do hard things! 💪🏼 #honolulumarathon#runhawaii#oahulife
Missing summer yet?
If summer is a state of mind, nothing is going to make you feel more like summer than some new sea-inspired clothes for the beach, home, or anywhere in between! Our bright and colorful Wave Gradient Leggings are sure to make you smile and dream of tropical getaways. 😎🏝️🌅 🌊 Escape to the Sea 🌊

We’ve kept this close to our hearts so that we could savor every moment and focus in on what truly matters: the choice we are making to be each other’s partner, through thick and thin, for every step we take in this life. But I’m far too excited to keep it in now that we’ve hit the single digit countdown & let our closest friends and family in on our secret... ♥️👰🏻🤵🏻 9 DAYS FROM TODAY. December 20th, 2018 at sunset on a small beach on the west side of Oahu, we will be married. My momma, brother and future sis-in-law are flying in this week to be there to witness, along with Brandon’s immediate family. We are SO excited to enjoy this holiday season as a married couple with both sides of our family, and to begin creating our own Ohana traditions.
SOoooOoo with that..... WE ARE GETTING MARRIED !!!!!!🥂♥️✨ and SO stoked for all the exciting activities we have planned to celebrate with our friends and family, near and far. These next few weeks are going to be unforgettable 😍
One of the gifts of Magi that was brought to the birth of Jesus in the book of Matthew was frankincense. Frankincense was very expensive and a gift fit for a king. |
Almost all frankincense comes from western Oman, where it is used for everything from deodorant and toothpaste to food and drink flavoring. |
Today frankincense is great for so much more! I use it in my skincare routine, but it’s also great for immune health, stress reducer and inflammation reducer to name a few. |
To me it’s not a “Christmas scent” but it is important as it pertains to Jesus and it is His birthday after all! This oil is must have for your winter season skin care regimen and of course for celebrating the birth of our King!

missing my handsome a little more than usual this morning... I’d be lying if I said that I don’t seriously contemplate homeschool at least a once a week. I live for our weekends because I looove having all three of my babies together and I also really enjoy no 6:15 alarm 🤣 every monday morning after I drop him off, this little wave of selfish sadness hits me and we’re back to survival mode for the week. counting down the days until summer break + endless adventures are upon us 💙
