If there’s one sport that’s close to my heart, it’s stand up paddleboarding. It relaxes me, is soothing, is like taking an early morning walk on water, helped me get back in the water regularly after I moved away from Hawaii, is a great time to be quiet, and (finally) is just really peaceful. Unless it’s super windy. I love how it gets people on the water who are, or have been landlocked, gets people who are scared of the water somewhat in the water, and is something you can now do all over the globe. Iowa to Germany. Colorado to Moorea. Tahoe to Texas. (more…)
Last weekend, I thought for some reason it wouldn’t be freezing to jump into the pacific without a wetsuit, in California, in the middle of winter. I was wrong. It was cold. But, it was totally worth it!

I exited the ocean feeling fresh, renewed, and ready to face any challenges that come my way this year.
As most of you know, I live for the long days in the sun, endless swims through the salt water, sandy feet, and living out of a bikini. During the winter these happy sunny days seem to dwindle, but lucky for us we can hop on a plane and escape the winter cold even if just for a few days. Taking a break to catch some much needed sun is always good for the soul. (more…)
