Hiking Alone

It's my goal to hike at least once a week. Sadly, I have like zero friends who enjoy hiking so I am forced to do it by myself. Which, has turned out to be okay. I am going to start bringing Jax along with me on the hikes that allow dogs so that should bring some fun to it!

Last week I hiked the Lanikai Pillboxes again. Got to try out my new hiking shoes too. I need to make it there for a sunrise! Sleep got the best of me. A stunning view that I will never get tired of.

Anniversary Wknd Adventures

Some random adventures from our Anniversary weekend in North Carolina!

Anniversary at the Gamekeeper. I tried an Ostrich filet. Not a fan. Give me some Bison!
*In all honesty, I was so upset over this place. Apparently they change their menu around. The one we looked at before deciding on a place had chicken and steak. Got there and was so disappointed. The Husband loved it.*

When it rains... drink wine all day!

Mountainside Love

If you ever happen to find yourself looking for a quaint bed & breakfast in the beautiful Appalachian Mountains of North Carolina... My husband and I strongly suggest the Mountainside Lodge B&B in Valle Crucis! This was our one year wedding anniversary gift to ourselves. It was so peaceful and absolutely needed. 100% satisfied customers! Of course, we just wish we could have stayed longer. We are already trying to plan the next time we can make it up there!

*Yes, I am just now getting to our vacation pictures. Better late than never!

Yoga Loft Hawaii

 "The word yoga comes from Sanskrit, the language of ancient India. It means union, integration, or wholeness. It is an approach to health that promotes the harmonious collaboration of the human being's three components: body, mind, and spirit."

I had the most amazing experience at. My first 'official' yoga class. It was powerful. I left feeling rejuvinated, cleansed, and at peace. It was so very different from my practice of yoga at home. I am so excited to see where Yoga takes me each week!  

I challenge you to go try a yoga class.

Most times there are specials for your first class at a yoga studio!

Florida Friday

Thought I'd dedicate this Friday to my hometown and the pretty pictures I captured while visiting. I had forgotten how pretty Florida sunrises/sunsets are!

Get to da choppa!

I hope you read my title in your best Arnold Schwarzenegger voice.

As soon as we got back from our vacation, the Hubs was thrown back into training exercises. From here on out, I will rarely see much of him. Such is Army life. Anyway, he knows my love for aviation and thinks I am a huge loser for thinking it's 'pretty freaking awesome' that he gets to play this week so he has sent me some awesome pictures. Enjoy!

A little lighthouse

I've recently been adventuring on hikes by myself. Ones that of course I am familiar with so I don't wind up lost and sleeping in the jungle with wild boars. The Army sucks the life out of my man and I get bored with staying inside on an island all day! I revisited Makapuu Lighthouse. Such a pretty day. Next time ill be bringing Jax with me! Wish me luck.
