ALEX 🐚 LETTRICH  If you're not barefoot then you're overdressed daughter of the sea Currently: Miami Swim Week ☼ rates | booking:

You have dirt on your feet, the wilderness in your hair and salt moving through your bones. And then there’s the air you breathe - an inhale of anything and everything you want it to be - a prayer, the ocean, an answer. So the next time the sun smiles at you and leaves a warm imprint on your soul, please remember all the different ways you can be touched when you’re alone ☼ | by @shortstache

You were always growing, even when it did not feel that way. When the world felt like a weight inside of your chest, you were growing. When the hands that held your heart fumbled with all that it was, when they thrust it back into your palms, when “I love you” turned into “I cannot stay” — you were growing. When it felt as if your hope was holding its breath, when all that was alive underneath your skin suddenly calmed, suddenly laid down it's arms — you were growing. You were growing in the dark, and you were growing in the damage. You were growing in the loss, and in the healing, and in all that was messy within your life. I know that sometimes it is difficult to see the way you are blooming from all of the missteps, from all of the mistakes, when you are rooted in the journey. But I hope you see it now — how your past conspired to build you into the person you are today. How it made you stronger and softer at the same time. I hope you see it now — how you were growing when you folded your hope into yourself each and every night. How you were growing when you fought to wake up each morning.
I hope you see it now — how you were discovering yourself.
How you were becoming.

Listen to me. Your body is not a temple. Temples can be destroyed and desecrated. Your body is a forest - thick canopies of maple trees and sweet scented wild flowers sprouting in the underwood. You will grow back, over and over, no matter how badly you are devastated ❊

You’ve seen my descent. Now watch my rising.

Show up as the powerful woman you are.”

I wish every Monday looked like this - ascending through the deep blue, surrounded by these beauties.
Where would you like to be right now?

She is water. Powerful enough to drown you,
Soft enough to cleanse you, deep enough to save you.

I just want to spend the rest of my life sun soaked in a bikini, traveling the world searching for the next best abandoned tropical island. Who’s with me? ☼

Wherever life plants you, bloom with grace 🌿

“When they ask you why you love
the rain, the ocean, the river,
tell them it is because unlike people
who should have loved you better,
the water was never afraid to touch you
even when you were at your most damaged and broken.”

Descending into the Bahamian blues 💙💦
There’s usually about 20+ sharks here at one time in these instances, a variation of species too - but I love to cruise around and spend a couple moments with each of them one on one. I just sit back in awe of their beauty and grace. I’m completely mesmerized by the way they move.

A mama tee in the sea. Only in Belize will you hop in the water and immediately have a manatee and a spotted eagle ray swim swimming together. They went opposite directions but I was able to spend some more time with this girl because she was swimming so calmly. I’ll remember this dive forever. Comment below which one you’d choose!
Also check my stories for the shot of them together 💙
