//Green Mountain sights//Β 

Green Mountain makes for such a nice Sunday walk! The trees are budding, flowers are blooming, birds are chirping and sunlight gleams through trees. It’s pure bliss being on that trail.

Gods goodness is clearly seen when I’m out in His creation. It’s almost as if everything is proclaiming His name.

I always feel so much closer to God when I’m away from the busyness of life, it’s a time I can just chit-chat with my dear savior and thank Him for everything He’s done for me.

God is good all the time y’all! 😊

Thanks for reading some thoughts of mine. I hope you have a super wonderful day today!

//Ocean Shores//

I was so blessed to be able to spend time with my family this weekend. Our lives get so busy that we hardly have any time to spend with each other, so it was really good to get away and unwind with them. Our weekend at Ocean Shore was filled with many little joys, like roller skating, fish and chips, pouring rain, stunning sunrise, Grass that dances and sways in the wind, hysterical laughter, colorful kites, bad ice cream, crazy beach hair and Irish music. Those are just some of the things that made me smile.

I’m hoping we’ll be able to go back real soon!

Thanks for reading πŸ™‚ I hope you have a super wonderful day today!

//Glass beach//

A few Sundays ago my family and I went on a little adventure. we headed up to Port Townsend area to a beach well known for the vintage broken glass that has become smooth over time. It’s pretty picked over, so I didn’t find a whole lot, but I took home a few good ones. It was nice to get out of the house and go for a walk on the beach enjoying the fresh air and scenery. Oh and the flowers were magnificent! I couldn’t believe they were still growing through the cold weather, I mean its November! So yeah, that was a good day.

Thanks for reading, have an amazing day!

//Mount Ellinor in September//

This hike was very tiring, but well worth it. I don’t have to say much because these pictures speak for themselves. My sister would say that sounds cheesy, Hey and it is, I’m just a cheesy person I guess πŸ˜‰.

Thanks for reading guys! I hope you have a wonderful day!

//Oahu day 5//

Well I’ve been procrastinating writing this post for a few months now. I don’t know why, maybe because its hard to explain what I experienced on this day and there aren’t many pictures to explain it for me. So I’ll try my best πŸ™‚

My friends and I woke up pretty early and headed to sharks cove so we could beat the crowd of people coming to that popular spot. Once we got there we were eager to jump out of the car and see what this place had to offer. The cool morning air was kind of discouraging me from hopping into the water, but I slowly inched myself into the rocky cove. I don’t think I stayed in very long because it was quite cold (not really it was probably 80 degrees) so it was time to sun tan! The day began to warm back up so my friends and I decided to get back in the water and do some exploring. We put on some snorkeling stuff and were amazed at all the different types of sea life. There were purple, yellow, white and orange fish, some I recognized from Finding Nemo haha :D. It was one of the most amazing (and terrifying) experiences of my life.

It was now time to face one of my biggest fears, the ocean. swimming in a little cove were you could touch the bottom most of time was scary but doable for me. I wanted to go a step further and accomplish something on my bucket list, cliff jumping. As I stood on the rocks from which I would soon be leaping from, my mind started to think too much and the ocean and rocks below me just seemed so terrifying. So I started small and leapt of a small point which I had seen my friend (who also is afraid of the ocean) do, and it was wonderfully horrible! The feeling right before you’re about to jump is sickening, it seems like your feet are glued to the rocks your standing on and everything in your mind and body is telling you not to do it. But the wild side in me peeked through and I forced myself to jump. It was (sadly) one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. By the end of our evening at sharks cove, I had worked my way up to jumping off a rock which was 10 or 15 feet above the water, thats high enough for me!

By the end of the day I was worn out, dehydrated, sunburnt, half drowned and still had adrenaline pumping through my vanes. Time for some well earned dole whip I would have to say ;). Good day, in fact one of the best days of my life.

Thanks for reading! I hope you have a wonderful day today πŸ™‚

This summer flew by Insanely fast, I can’t believe its already September! This was the best summer of my life so far. Some thing that made it so great was my wonderful friends. I am so thankful God placed them in my life. Also I got to go to Hawaii with my best friends, which is something you always dream about when you’re young but you never think it will actually happen. But it did happen and it was the most amazing experience and I could never thank the people who made it possible enough. My bucket list is slowly but surely being achieved. I got to mentally check off traveling to Hawaii, cliff jumping and another thing, which I’ll tell you about eventually 😁 . This summer for me was about focusing on relationships and just enjoying the little things that make life great, Like rolling down your car window and feeling the wind, watching the sunset, laughing with family and friends, berry picking, looking for shooting stars, bonfires, getting crazy tan lines, long exhausting hikes and just experiencing every little thing you can about summer. I couldn’t have asked for a better summer.

Thanks for reading! I hope you have a wonderful week πŸ™‚
