Recently I celebrated another trip around the sun. Last year cracked me open to the core. But digging deep into those cracks and pulling out the rot is the only way we can make space for new buds to grow. Never have I been so challenged to love myself and who I am to it’s entirety. Most of the time I felt like giving up, but being forced out of safety allowed me to create a new relationship with myself. One I still have plenty to work on. But the older I get the more I praise my body, my mind, and my heart for their resiliency in times like these. So this next year of life I want to learn how to love myself better, so I can love any and all who come into my life that much more ❤︎ #selflove
Little snippets of why Mexico always has me coming back for more. I love this country. Doesn’t hurt to have the #barcelostories team spoiling me rotten! Gracias por los recuerdos @occidentalatxcaretdestination 🇲🇽

A typical evening talking story with @ravaray. Waiting for whales, sharing dreams and lots of laughter ✨

Last year I started slowly pulling myself off this platform. My personal life became too unmanageable and I felt like I couldn’t be 100% real with you guys. For those of you that have followed me for a while, you know that is really important to me. Nothing I could have shared would have aligned with what I was truly feeling inside. Then I went to Tahiti and everything changed. I broke my phone only a couple days into the trip and couldn’t help but think it was a push from the universe leading me exactly to where I needed to be. For the first time in years I was able to be fully present. From sunrise to sunset, for weeks I was able to soak in the beauty of mother earth, wildlife, and good company without the distraction of being lost in a screen. Living in the now was the best thing I have ever been forced to do. I am so unbelievably grateful for this. I am even more grateful for @jaymgreiner and the @mooreamoanatours family for giving me life again when I needed it the most. And thank you all for following along on this journey of getting back to where I want to be ✖️
A light in the darkness ✨
Many of you might think that I’m running happily around the world on adventures like this one with @occidentalatxcaretdestination, but it’s obvious that’s not my full reality. I’m going to shed more light on my hiatus on another post tomorrow because today I’m focusing on the light amongst all that. I’m so thankful for these moments and getting to travel and shoot for campaigns like the #barcelostories team who is always so amazing to me. And to all of you who sent messages concerning my wellbeing, I am starting to go through them and want to thank you for your little beams of positivity. You’ll be hearing from soon.
Lost my heart to the sea 💧
Stoked to be supporting brands like @teetsparis who are completely plastic free from production to packaging. The sea has saved me time and time again, so I think it’s time we all start protecting it. Get behind this plastic free movement // by @jaymgreiner in crystal clear Mo’orea

Since I was a little girl, I have dreamt more than a million times of coming to Tahiti. It is so much more magical than I could have imagined. This video is my surreal first dive with humpback whales ever and all thanks to @mooreamoanatours I got to witness their absolute grace and beauty as they danced right in front of my eyes. I’ll remember this moment for the rest of my life. Thank you for shooting and editing this @jaymgreiner 🙏🏽🐋 💦 // song beneath with me by @kaskade
Always living in my summer skin ☼
@katieslater_photography and I soaked up the last of the evening light in my favorite place on earth. Absolutely nothing beats balmy summer nights on the outer banks. ↠ beautiful handmade kini by @seayarn
We arrive into this world as energy, same as stars, wildlife, wind and ocean. Messy, raw, and continuously perfect in our chaos. Release the need to control and instead surrender to your own natural rhythm, as expansive, accepting and open to new circumstances and situations as air itself. That is how you’ll thrive.

Life looks better under water. Especially in Belize.
I wish I could lay in this seagrass forever and watch all the sea creatures go by 🐟🐠 | photo by @johngarzaphoto
Collect moments, not things 🌿
I could have just the t-shirt on my back (ok bikini) and be the happiest girl alive. As long as I have these adventures.
They are the things that will stay with me forever.

I look for you in the middle of the light
in the west of the day, in the warm memory of water
The sheer size of a tiger is very powerful to see in motion but I’ve always been so fascinated with their stripes. For such a large animal, they move slowly, and I love it because I can admire their every beautiful detail. What’s your favorite shark and why?
Throwing it back to one of my favorite days on earth with my sun sister @lovindaze when we ran nakey around Oahu and got drunk on sun and salt. Can’t wait to be feeling that Hawai’i magic all over again next week ☼
Rolling into the weekend 💦
In any given moment we have two options: to step forward into growth or step back into safety. This is something I’ve been thinking about a lot lately. Well, forget safety. I want to live only in a space that continues to set my soul on fire.
Don’t settle for anything less than those moments.
I’ve been all over the world but the Outer Banks always seems to pull me back. Growing up on this little island makes working with local brands like @allwashedupjewelry and beautiful photog @katieslater_photography that much more special ✨
Where’s the place that you always come back to?
I have this reoccurring dream where I’m sitting at the bottom of the ocean and I’m surrounded by all different types of sharks, rays, whales. I can breathe underwater so I just sit there in total bliss appreciating their grace and beauty. Then I wake up and realize I like animals more than humans and I wish I had gills. What do you dream of? ⋆
