Aloha friends!  I want to begin this post with an apology for appearing to be MIA. I have been writing draft after draft and feeling like I need to add more research, more data. I suppose with the craze of fake news splashing my notifications constantly, I don’t want to contribute to the chaos.  Well, pathetic excuses aside, I HAVE been creating LOTS of content to share. I mean, I have really been having some adventures these 2 months and I am very excited to share with you. In fact, I have kept most of my adventures off of social media so that I can share with YOU FIRST!

So, where to begin… I took my first vacation alone ever in life. I went to Washington State, rented a car and spent the next 6 days growing into a healthier adult and I absolutely loved it! I highly recommend vacationing alone once in a while to a new place. It really can be so fulfilling and fun!!

Speaking of new… I may have mentioned that I was taking a class at the university here. Well, it was a short class about cleansing and the benefits to the body. I missed the last class to catch my flight to the airport, but I learned so much, I am super pumped to share with you what I learned which led me to… wait for it…

Water fasting. Yes, I left my cleanse class with an insatiable desire to do a water fast! I know, I know, you must be thinking I am crazy. You have really no idea. Wait until I tell you how long I am doing the fast for… 40 days. Yes, friends. 40 days is the goal. I did not arrive at that number on my own, please know that. I also DO NOT recommend anyone follow in my footsteps without properly preparing AND SPEAKING TO YOUR DOCTOR. I did. I prepared for a month and got my doctors’ ok and then I went nuts. You should know, that’s just how I do things these days. All in or why?

one of my happy places is my little garden… great things are growing here!


Does that seem like a lot for just 2 months? It does to me, but then again, at the time of writing this I am on day 18 of my 40 days and I am feeling like I could jump off the Seattle Space Center (with a bungee of course). Ok, I got that idea from an amazing simulated adventure available in the Space Center but then I found out that in Vegas… wait, did I mention my husband and I are planning a Vegas vacay? Yes friends, that too! OMG! What is going on in Maui in 2018? Lots friends, lots and lots and I hope and pray lots more.

Speaking of praying, spiritual growth is happening also. It’s amazing what goes on in a mind and to attempt to clear out the negative while feeding our bodies toxic substances is extremely challenging, but not impossible. Eliminating the additional toxins while clearing our minds is much easier in my opinion because the demons that plague us come head on and are relentless. The need for Jesus and the presence of the Lord has become very evident to me this past month and I am excited to share that with you also!

So, this is just a short, quick update to check in and let you know that I think of you often, am preparing what I hope you will find is GREAT content and I am having some amazing experiences that are following along with our New Year plan of action.  I am excited and optimistic about the future and the way it is going. I hope you are having some amazing experiences yourself and you have been true to your heart and following your goals for this new year. I know, it’s May 1st tomorrow so the year isn’t so new, but it’s always new to me when each day is the beginning of something amazing.

Ok friends. I am in between responsibilities right now and must go grab my daughter from school and I want to jump into the posts I have been hinting at. I will return shortly and look forward to sharing all that I have to share. I hope you are excited to read all about it too!
