This day was simply too special to put into words. I have tried for the last hour and all I can say is I’m so grateful for the chance to live a life of full participation. Of curiosity and possibility and unabated appreciation. – I feel like I’m finally finding a rhythm to my life, actively listening to my intuition. Perhaps it’s fleeting the way high and lows and synchronicity always seems to be 🙂 Maybe I will always have a hard time finding the right words. Either way, what I do know is this: the small song in my head has become a symphony and now, no matter what what path I’m on I will always know the difference. #happyheart – Photo by @nolanomura #gratitudegrowshere #freedive #hawaii – Please always be respectful in any interactions with wildlife. You do not need to chase or touch any creature, patience💙

“The secret to happiness is freedom. The secret to freedom is courage.” 🙌 We definitely were super brave (or maybe slightly stupid 🤪) for taking our shirts off when it was freezing outside 🥶 We definitely were brave to continue to shoot while everyone was staring at us and probably judging us 👀 But do you know what? Who cares what other people think? Let them look, let them laugh, let them gossip… We will continue to find our freedom and to live life the way it makes us happy 🤟🏻 do you usually stop and stare when other people are taking pictures? Be honest ✄┄┄┄┄┄┄┄┄┄┄┄┄ #utahisrad #igutah #utahgram #wowutah #visittheusa #roadtrip #roadtripusa #explorerssauruspresets #wanderlust #adventuretime #traveladdict #postcardplaces
