Solo adventure through the Ahuimanu trail. Lost the trail, hiked up the stream, and got plenty dirty and a handful of battle wounds. Will attempt again with a partner next time 😝

I've been able to reflect a lot on myself over the past 9 weeks on the island.
The best thing that's happened to me so far? "Paradise" has opened my mind to a new level of patience. In every aspect of my life, I've been challenged to be more patient. Its given me an appreciation for myself and helped me embrace my natural reaction to certain situations. I realize what kind of life I want to lead -- shifted some priorities. 
I am truly lucky to be the person I am, to be loved by the people who love me, and to have the parents that I do to guide me.

The first hike I was able to do: Lanikai Pillbox. Pretty easy but super busy. All worth it for a view of Waimanalo Beach like this 😍

This beautiful place is called Byodo-In Temple. It was established in 1968 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the first Japanese immigrants who came to Hawaii. It is a small replica of the 950-year-old temple in Uji, Japan.
Very peaceful area. I got to ring a giant bell before going into the temple and seeing a giant Buddha that's over 9 feet tall and covered in gold leaf!

Went on a walk today and checked out Ala Moana. Still can't believe the water is actually that color! This is definitely one of my favorite spots so far.

The best way I can describe my first week on the Island: a bucket of emotions.
Thrilled to be here, overwhelmed at the change, scared to be so far away from my main support system, blown away at the sights I've seen, grateful for @oops_i_sparkled for giving me this awesome opportunity .. the list goes on and on.
Here's to adventure and the new.
Here's to change and rolling with the waves.
Here's to learning about myself and meeting people.

My last few weeks in Colorado have been absolutely fantastic. I've been a bucket of emotions and couldn't be more excited to finally close this chapter of my life.
Thank you everyone who worked with my wacky schedule to see me and support me through words of wisdom and tight hugs.
Here's to new beginnings and embracing change!
✌️❀️😊

I'd like to take a minute and talk about this man right here. He continuously impresses me with how well he holds himself in situations he's not always comfortable with. He is one of the most self-aware people I have ever met, always being mindful of the way he is communicating with everyone. He recognizes habits about himself, both good and bad, and does his best to improve himself accordingly. 
In just under a year we've managed to: climb 3 fourteeners in a day, hike 10 miles to a hot springs and watch a meteor shower, repel down a 220ft cliff in a Moab canyon, drive through a blizzard to hike to a beautifully tucked away lake, and spent a weekend of luxury with hot springs and massages.
He has quickly become one of my absolute favorite human beings in this world and no words could express exactly what he means to me. Peder, thank you for being the person you are and treating me the spectacular way that you do. We make a great team and I cannot wait to see you out in paradise on a surfboard! πŸοΈπŸŒ…πŸ§—πŸ„

Moab, Utah: it's all about perspective.
This trip was one for the books! 
Much more pictures to come.
Special thanks to the best adventure buddy I could ask for, Peder Brown.

Adventures like this help me realize that I am in pursuit of becoming the best version of myself 🀩 I know it's not an end destination, however I do like to see my progress. Especially over the last 5 years, I've been able to get out of my box and do things I never would've thought I would do. Like hike 16 miles round-trip to get to the top of a mountain I always wanted to climb✌️

Two of my favorite people 😍 they helped push me to get to the top of that mountain. This is us before we were exhausted by the 3,500 ft elevation change up the mountain!
Shout out to @katrinawould and Peder for being so awesome and adventurous πŸ€©πŸ€—
