Was going through my old hard drive and landed on this gem from November 2017. If you guys remember, this was the trip @mhomsy decided we should finally date. I spent the rest of our trip thinking I’d dreamt it all up and that I would wake up and still be on the plane with a crazy kink in my neck lol. It didn’t help that the places we visited we’re also pretty dreamy ✨ #dreamland #havanacuba

Ever visit a place or something so good happens you think it couldn’t be real?

CARDIO I ENJOY:
✓ Walking to the fridge
✓ Baywatch running into the ocean
.
Alright let me hear it, what do you like doing for exercise? Or are you like me and enjoy my cardio workout above?

YES, THIS IS REAL!

Lost my flipping banana yesterday after standing in this canyon and realizing just how beautiful it is when you see it with your own two eyes!

It was easy to take 1000 pictures because every turn was more beautiful then the next! Another bucket list item checked off.

Thanks Dad for holding onto my shorts while I leaned over the edge to get a shot of the bend 🙏🏼 #lifesaver #horseshoebend

I could not stop staring 👀

Finally visited the Grand Canyon last night. We went up to Mohave point and found ourselves sitting and staring at the view. It was insane and so massive it immediately makes you feel like the smallest being. You start to wonder what it’s history is. Why are there so many layers in the rock? How did this canyon form? You bet I went searching Google for answers lol

Anyone else a Google freak? I love looking things up 🙈

A few days ago Mike and I tried out @scandinavetremblant. It was beautiful and so peaceful. In the video you’ll see the river where you can take a dip after a hot pool session...I lasted 2 seconds. Would you guys be down to take a cold plunge?

ITS WEDDING DAY!

No, not mine :) Today I get to celebrate my friend @nataliasculli as she marries her man @geraldgodfrey.1. Wishing you both a lifetime of growing together, love so much that it bursts your hearts, adventures beyond your wildest dreams and fun in everything you do. Can’t wait to dance our faces off tonight!

As for you my love, @mhomsy. Thank you for supporting my dreams and dreaming with me, for showing me that real love exists, for being excited to grow and learn together, for your patience time and time again, for being silly with me and for wrapping me up in a blanket burrito when I’m cold. Can’t wait to see your handsome self later!

(Thank you @amyseder for taking this picture!)

GOING OFFLINE. This will be my last post for the next 5 days. I’ve decided to take an Instagram break. I’ve been feeling really burned out especially in the last few weeks. I will explain more when I come back but for now just wanted to wish everyone an amazing weekend! Don’t forget to spend quality time with the people you love and give yourself lots of love too. Thank you all so much for your constant love and support. I’ll see you later alligators! ❤️

Beached babes at a pink sand beach. Not a bad day at all.
🏝
Why is the sand pink? It’s hard to see the subtle pink colour in this photo but tiny red organisms grow beneath the coral reefs and when they die and fall to the ocean floor, the organisms mingle with bits of coral and crushed shell that are washed onto the beach and make the sand appear pink. Pretty cool eh?

Finally exploring the island my parents honeymooned to and spoke to me about for years. From what we’ve seen so far Bermuda has beautiful PINK beaches, colourful sunsets, some seriously amazing food, friendly folks and the best chai lattes 🤤
