Added some cheer to the sidewalks for our friendly neighborhood exercisers and one of my all-time favorite nurses (@abbeyfriets) during this chaotic time. We’re all in this together so it’s important to remember to spread kindness, show more love and grace, less hate and when you get the chance to... thank a nurse. ♥️
Mahalo (n.) Thank you ❤️
I am so thankful for this community of print lovers near and far! Our islands continue to inspire me to create wonderful things and I can't wait to share more with you!
Day 7 of quarantine and whilst it's nice to be home and have my family around I sure am missing the ocean!
I'm putting my time to use planning camps, courses and the Blue Element 2020 competition. So if you're like me and itching to get back in there, and would like to take you're diving to the next level then join me and my team in Dominica where we have world class conditions day in and day out!
No waves, no current and no depth limit!
12.31.2019: This was my debut attempt to Skydive, which I wanted to do in Hawaii’s Northshore. The flight took us above the clouds and then sent us on the fastest 14,000 foot journey- traveling vertically. We were released right above the shoreline- looking on one side we saw the sea where the humpback whales were at galore and on the other side we saw a few rainbows and the mountains.
Here is my most precious 60 seconds of 2019.
More than half of the revenue in the island state is brought in by tourism. Wishing the livelihood of places like Hawaii who rely heavily on incoming tourists is restored as soon as possible; and we get the opportunity to appreciate the outdoors yet again.

Can’t wait to be able to go out and go take some photos📷
Since I can’t sit at home all day watching TV, I’ve been working out almost everyday recently. (Usually 3 times a week) It reminded me of the time of my life that I wasn’t able to work for 6 months after I moved to US. (Because of the visa process) I used wake up, go running for at least 5 miles and then workout at home everyday and I lost 11lbs! Since I have time now, I will challenge myself to get into better shape again💪💕
Is there light at the end of this tunnel?
Tough times around the world right now; unprecedented in our life and with it, the possibility of a global economic collapse. While there is plenty of hope and we are optimistic, we don’t agree with the current administration’s decision to continuously undermine the seriousness of this pandemic.
All of us in this space are familiar with the term “influencer.” As POTUS, the world’s biggest influencer is arguably the @realdonaldtrump and we’re certain he would agree 🤣. He speaks and his voice is heard.
The leader of the United States has downplayed COVID-19 from the start. Americans are very liberal with their freedom as is and our leadership has indicated that this is all just hype. As a result and despite an extreme shortage of testing kits, the USA now has more confirmed cases than any other country and we’re weeks, if not months, away from peaking.
It’s frightening because we should be mocking China (who has supposedly turned this around) by enforcing stricter measures, while Donald is encouraging the opposite. This virus is too new to speak with any amount of certainty. The long term effects are unknown.
Conspiracy? Is the media unjustly overhyping this? There are many discussions to be had but this is too in-our-face now and the only way our economy starts recovery is when this gets under control. That means consistently less cases reported day by day, week after week. How do we do this? Starve the bastard. Enforce stricter measures.
We watched an interview with a Harvard professor last night who said we’re 12-18 months away from a COVID-free America given the current trend/level of enforcement. Our question is: what happens to the economy in that length of time? 😳 Why would we not bite the bullet and tightly lock down the entire country for three weeks to eradicate it? A temporary shutdown of our economy can be recovered from relatively quickly but long term chaos will surely lead into a deep recession.
Note: we don’t entirely blame Donald (we’re all adults who should be able to think for ourselves), nor are we economists or political science majors. If you’ve made it this far, you get a gold star ⭐️
