Sunshine, blue skies, salty hair, pina coladas, sandy toes, love, and lots of smiles. 
This trip to Hawaii really helped me realize how happy this place makes me.

The last few weeks have been chaotic to say the least... I often close my eyes and transport back to the sun filled days laying on the beach and find peace in these memories. The next three months hold so much weight, and the pressure is already settling in. I am working to take things one day at a time, and let the stars align for me. I am so thankful for the confidence, compassion, sense of adventure, and lessons that college has taught me. I am also thankful for the passion I can feel inside of me and the opportunities that I will encounter. It scares me, but there are no shortcuts to any place worth going... Am I right? 

"There will be a few times in your life when all your instincts tell you to do something, something that defies logic, upsets your plans, and may seem crazy to others. When that happens, you do it. Listen to your instincts and ignore everything else. Ignore logic, ignore the odds, ignore the complications, and just go for it."
