So yesterday was Taryns last first day of school and I was totally fine. No tears or emotion, just relief and gratitude that she made it to her senior year.
Then today I recreated this pic and as I was editing it, tears began pouring down my face. The time in between these two pics have been the greatest blessing of my life. I feel so grateful to know her, that God let me be her mom. My goal was to raise a kind human being and help her utilize the gifts God gave her. And he gave her such a beautiful smile, a huge heart, the funniest sense of humor and an amazing work ethic that has earned her a 4.6 gpa going into her senior year. Senior year. My tarebear is now a senior. Excuse me while I go cry again.

There is so much love in our world but the media only chooses to show us the hate. it is up to us to find love, create love and share love. It isnt always easy, especially when you are angry, hurt, and scared. Alot of people are still angry their candidate didnt win, alot of people are hurt their feelings dont matter and many people are scared for their future.
If you are experiencing any of these emotions, turn OFF the news, go outside and smile at a stranger, call a friend and say thank you but always put God first before reacting to negative emotions. Those steps have helped me whenever I have felt anger at what I see on the news. ❤

Everyone who knows me knows I don't follow recipes exactly. Trisha Yearwood has a turkey meatloaf sandwich she makes for Garth Brooks and I thought I'd make it for Taven. But I had a red onion instead of white, Sourdough instead of wheat bread and cilantro instead of parsley and BBQ sauce instead of ketchup. What I created was a BBQ turkey meatloaf instead! I put it in a flour tortilla with other stuff you can see in the story. It is so delicious and I will be adding this recipe to my blog in case you all want to try it.

Horseback riding is fun but Taryn laughed and screamed the entire time we took this waverunner for a ride.

Like when you see it ❤

If you want to make God laugh, tell him about your plans as today we started off with a plan and everything got messed up. But we ended up here so it all worked out.

The only thing I didnt get to do in Maui was drink out of a coconut. But #ifoundlove and this is a new fav pic

One last tip when you go to Maui - rent a jeep or convertible. It is worth every penny. We loved it.

What an incredible trip to Maui. We all stayed at my parents #vrbo in Kahana @kahanaoutrigger After exploring the entire island, Kahana, Kapalua, Kaanapaali are definately the best spots on the island to be. Taven and I took a sunset dinner cruise on a catamaran (Hula Girl) that was so peaceful and romantic. Taryn and I did a 5 point zip lining expedition (@kapaluaziplines) that turned out to be the most hard work Ive ever put in on an adventure but Tare loved it. We dined like Royalty at Ruth Chris, Roy's, and the best kept secret Sensai's sushi where they have 50% off monday nights from 5-6.
Taryn jumped off a huge cliff into the ocean and Taven ate a 2000 calorie breakfast burger he claims was the best thing ever.
Much love and thanks to my parents who got all of us together. Ohana is so important and Im grateful for the time with all of them. @melmel_73 @tarynlarissa @ldoggett_1
