The Ultimate Mother

I was one of those children who spent much of her childhood indoors. Me in my youth. I've wondered what my life would've been like had I been encouraged to go outdoors more. However, if I'm taking responsibility for myself, I'll say instead, I've wondered what my life would have been like had I voluntarily … Continue reading The Ultimate Mother

Baby Forest

Every day since finding out she was pregnant, Vee took long walks along one of the many paths trailing near her house in the forest. As she walked, she'd rub her tummy and tell a made up story about the forest to her growing baby. No matter the weather or how she was feeling, which … Continue reading Baby Forest

Vegetarianism is not as challenging because, in my experience, adding cheese, butter, and/or … Continue reading Plant Based Chef

It is truly a beautiful word encompassing the spirit of Hawai'i, which means the breath (ha) and water (wai) of life from god.  I didn't get far into Kona, a.k.a the Big Island, before I knew this island was … Continue reading Big Island, Aloha!

Road Trip: Cali (P2)

What else was worth it the next day? Yosemite! I'd love to spend time talking about what I saw but my words and the pictures do it absolutely no justice. My phone was mad dark. It's just nature at its finest! Makes me wonder if the world was always so beautiful, how the hell did … Continue reading Road Trip: Cali (P2)
