modernmaven Scoping out the surf...no paddle boarding for us today as the water is a bit too wavy from the encroaching storms. A big 🏻 to hurricane season. #bigisland #Hawaii 7d

modernmaven My whole heart wrapped up in that blurry laugh and smile. How have 4 1/2 years gone by? Sometimes I get so overwhelmed by the weight of it all...guiding her, supporting her, teaching her and balancing it with my (wonderfully patient)husband/life/work/myself/friends/home and on and on...I'm pretty hard on myself. I know so many of you are too, even on days when I feel alone in this journey, I know in my heart I am not alone. Sending love to all you mamas, to all of you women, who deserve to be told you are amazing, you are appreciated and you are truly loved. 1w

modernmaven {1} It's raining cats and dogs here. {2} I've just purchased my first gym membership ever...It's odd for me because as some may know, I've been a fitness instructor since I was 15, which has always come with a free gym membership. I just can't fit teaching in right now so I had to just go for it. {3} I haven't been in the gym and lifted weights in almost 1 1/2 years and holy smokes...it felt so good! My body needed it. Though I may not be able to walk tomorrow. {4} I'm taking today off of work. I've needed a break and I'm loving this day to myself. It's been a great start to the week. Happy Monday friends 2w

modernmaven Aloha! I just wanted to pop in and say hi...it's been a little hard for me to keep up on here lately. My job has been pretty busy and overwhelming at times. I am sorry to not have been as responsive or communicative. You know, this community means a ton to me. And I think of so many of you so often. I cherish the friendships I've made. I truly do! I think about @katyannev as she braves a new world of going back to work...I hope @allysonm and @thealisonshow are feeling well with sweet babes in their bellies...I can't wait for @danihampton to get herself over here to spend some time with me on the beach...I am so proud of my friend @smileandwave for her courage in new circumstances...I feel unbelievably happy for @calikatrina and @ainsl3y and @mamawatters who have all welcomed precious little ones into their homes....and many thoughts about so many of you! I am thankful for the connections I've made through this crazy little/huge app and you all hold such special spots in my heart. Sending so much love to you all xoxo 3w

modernmaven Not a bad view on a Monday for work. Some days I still can't believe I live and work in Hawaii. 4w

modernmaven I'm so thankful for this girl and her adventurous spirit. I feel so fortunate that both our careers are going well and Channing is loving her new preschool. But we've definitely struggled with how we spend our family time. Hiking was such a huge part of our lives in Colorado and there's been a void from that since we moved. Investing in this new hobby the past few weeks has been just the answer for us. I'm so excited to learn more, gain strength and enjoy being out on the water with my loves. #SUP #paddleboard #grayhawaiilife #Hawaii #bigisland 4w
