I had to upload some images from Maui quickly. These aren’t even formatted correctly. I will come back to this…

Ice Skating Engagement! Caitlin and Matt

Grand Rapids, MI
Rosa Parks Circle

Congratulations Caitlin and Matt! What a fun day for ice-skating in the city! It was actually beautiful, warm(er) for Michigan in February, and the sun was out. These two are so cool (not just because they were ice skating! Hee hee). Their warm personalities make you feel like you've been friends for years. I instantly connected with these two. Smiles, jokes, a little insecurity about skating and falling on your arse (Caitlin)... I am so excited for this couple and can't wait for the wedding! They are having their reception at McKay Tower, which is reflected in the buildings in some of these shots. Pretty cool.

(They never fell on their arses, but other people did. They're in the background in some of these... Thought it was funny since it's the Olympics and everyone cringes on the edge of their seats waiting for people to fall. You know you do.)

Caitlin and Matt met at her cousin's wedding. Matt actually crashed it- well, kind of. The best man asked him to go. But Caitlin says he crashed it. They were together for two years when Matt proposed. There was a love note on the bed, and when Caitlin turned around, he was on his knee. He always tries to surprise her, and it never works, so this time he didn't plan anything and just did it. He wanted to propose on the blue bridge and got shot down for lack of originality. Ha!

Well, just look at these two! I am genuinely so, so happy for them. My heart gets bigger knowing people like these guys...

Portland, OR

So, I'm posting my pics of my vacation... I thought it would be nice to share something personal, instead of work work work all the time.  It was great to see my hanai family! I needed my girls. I was also in desperate need of a real vacation before wedding season started!

I've been going through a time of transformation recently, and as I was reading "Wild" from Cheryl Strayed, I thought what could be more perfect than Oregon at a time like this?  I even met a chickie that actually hiked the PCT by herself. I am still in awe of that lady. Little bit of a girl crush. She knows. 

We crossed the Bridge of the Gods (from "Wild"), went hiking, stood in awe in front of waterfalls, chilled at some vineyards, played at Canon Beach where The Goonies was filmed, ate oysters in front of the ocean, and had some significant spiritual time at The Grotto...

I am lucky that my old friend, Jen Kane, is the best energy healer out there in the world. I have to give her a shout out--  -- "Shift Into Joy represents a full body, mind, and spiritual shift."  Try it. You will not be disappointed. It is truly amazing. 

I am very blessed to have the people in my circle that I do. I am so grateful. Thank you for the aloha...
