I will never be a well behaved woman. I would rather pass my days lying in the middle of dirt roads, staring at the full moon with a bottle of summer red in my palms.

I would rather pass my days lying in the middle of dirt roads, staring at the full moon with a bottle of summer red in my palms.
I would rather have kids when it suits me, not when society expects or throws shoulds.

I would rather live in a hammock on a beach for six months, and write like my soul means it.

I would rather own moments, than investments.

I would rather eat alone, than sit with women who bore me at 'Wives’ Night.” I would rather swim naked with bioluminescence, have it fall like fireflies from my hair.

I would rather drink seven year old rum from a sandy bottle, smell of smoke and ash than sit in church.

I would rather learn from life than rack up debt, in a desk.

I would rather drink the ocean, again and again—celebrate being madly alive.

I would rather my love be defined by love itself, and nothing more or less.

I don’t need a ring on my finger to prove that I am in love.
I do not need to own a piece of earth with some wood on top of it—to feel successful. No one truly owns the land, anyway—we just think we do.
I will take a job I love and freedom over a pension, any day.

I will not work and work and work to live when my body is old and I am tired.

Stocks are for people who get boners from money.

If we must have milestones—mine will be measured by how much joy I have collected at the end of each day and how often in this life I have truly, deeply, opened. @jannerobinson 💌🌏🙃✌🏽️

Isn't it just the most incredible thing, that something we love so much, can bring such a morning of laughter and joy?
We loved connecting with beachgoers at Kalk Bay harbour today to explore our ocean 💙
Our pop up ocean workshop was open to any kids on the beach, and @capetowntidalpools, you'd have been thrilled to see how many people suddenly became more interested in the Brass Bell tidal pool than their meals at the restaurant! Seats emptied quickly and curious onlookers marvelled once they saw us discovering cuttlefish and octopus in there while we introduced our new snorkellers to the pool!

Anyone have postpartum anxiety before? I’ve had anxiety since about 2006..noticed it around the time of my divorce but this is a little different....
Don’t get it confused with postpartum depression.. not the same thing.
PPA is like you worry about things you can’t control. I freak out about driving with my kids. I also didn’t want my kids in the ocean even a step... I don’t drive on the freeway since Blakely was born. Sounds silly, but ..
I noticed it was pretty bad at the beach. I’m going to talk to my Dr. Friday. The gym has helped so much though.
If you have these feelings you are not alone. PPD, PPA, hormonal imbalances... they are all so common after and even during pregnancy, so don’t feel ashamed. Talking about and telling someone is the best thing. Pregnancy is hard enough to go through. You should be able to enjoy your baby and your postpartum journey.

I would rather be horribly broke at times, than married to a job because a mortgage payment has my ass on a hook.

I would rather swim naked with bioluminescence, have it fall like fireflies from my hair, my breasts, my back.

I will not drink the societal Kool-Aid on a bus, nor will I drink it on a train.Not on a plane, with a goat, in the rain, in the dark, in a tree, with a fox, in a box!
I will not jump through societies’ hoops and red tape, the treasure hunt in the rat race we chase.
If we must have milestones—mine will be measured by how much joy I have collected at the end of each day and how often in this life I have truly, deeply, opened.

On this Mother’s Day, Thinking of my friends who are mamas, who wish deeply to be mamas, and those who don’t have their mamas anymore. I love you.

This is my beautiful, wildly creative and generous friend Desiree of @foxandthetravelinggypsy.
She is pregnant and about to give birth to her third child, our second kids are almost the same age. Phoenix and Jupiter ✨. She’s also a natural dye mama, works with the plants, and has a house full of animals that’s bursting with love.

She has also developed a rare and life threatening pregnancy condition called Placenta Percreta, where her placenta has grown through the uterus wall and is fusing to her organs. She’s working with a specialist in Long Beach to give her and the baby the best chance of a healthy delivery.

Being in her presence at this time has been humbling. Witnessing her sheer strength, her passion for life, and incredible advocating for herself in a system with terrible statistics for WOC, all the while caring for her family and surrendering to the Great Mystery...
She is a testament to the power of the Divine Feminine.

Des and her family have moved to Long Beach for the month, and her dear friend set up a go fund me to raise funds to help offset some costs and so her husband, Reidar, can take off from work to be with the boys and care for Des as they go through this.

There’s a link in my bio, any small gesture helps, many small drops of water fill the ocean. Sharing this post or the go fund me on Facebook only takes a moment and would be deeply appreciated.

Ha But most impressive is my 3yr old daughter Malia who’s been charging alongside him!! It helps having a big brother to try and keep up with I guess. Also, I thought she was regular footed, but now I don’t know, cause she switches back n forth.

That second clip she took a beating on, she got up and started paddling back out to me asking for another wave haha.

I came to the ocean to start writing my book, and I expected all of the words to just pour out. All of the chapters are there, all of the words are in my head, but the sentences haven’t hit the paper. I took walks along the beach, processed with friends, journaled...With one day left, it was bothering me that I wasn’t truly accomplishing what I came to do. And then I woke up this morning, and it hit me like a train. I scrolled through Instagram seeing post after post of dads and their kids, family photos, and tributes to husbands. I angry cried for two solid hours. It was obvious there was one last thing to be done. It’s time. Now is the time. “But, God, if I forgive him for walking away then what? If I forgive it means I am ok with it now, and I am not. If I let it go then he will have peace and I don’t want him to.” And I could hear God say to me, “You don’t want to let it go because you are afraid you will never know what it’s like to have a family like this again. Do you trust me? Do you trust that forgiveness doesn’t mean letting go of your dreams? Do you trust that forgiveness doesn’t mean condoning. Do you trust that I will take care of you?” And it was like all of these memories of handing over trust to God this year came back to me. And I remembered the freedom and peace I know have because of it. And no way was I going to complete the most epic year of my life with discord still in my soul. Knowing such freedom and how good it feels, there is nothing that I can let stand in the way. No matter how scared I am, I know freedom is better. So, here it is out loud for all to hear...As 10 years of laughter, hugs, adventures, hardships and love pass through my mind, Ryan, I am so glad I got 10 years and two sweet babies with you. I will never understand why this choice was better. I am so sorry for any pain I have caused you. I pray peace and blessing follow you all the days of your life. I only wish the best things for you, and never any harm. Be well. Peace be with you. Happy Father’s Day! You are a wonderful dad to our kids. With Love, Alex

This morning - we drove north along A1A to have breakfast and the kids were pointing out the houses they loved. “Oh - that’s mine!

This morning - we drove north along A1A to have breakfast and the kids were pointing out the houses they loved. “Oh - that’s mine! Or “Wow, that one’s huge!” Then they asked how you get that much money to buy a house like that and I said “You work hard.” My son said. “Well, *you* work hard, mommy.” And I thought - maybe that wasn’t the right answer. Maybe what I should have said was that living in a mansion on the ocean doesn’t make you happy. Neither does having the latest iPhone or the coolest shoes. Happiness is a Saturday morning with the ones you love, driving along the beach to have breakfast together. It’s about seeing your ex at the surf shop nearby and the kids running to their dad and you saying hi and the clerk being shocked that you “get along so well”. It’s about love. In all forms. Being kind to people you don’t know and those you do, even when it’s hard. We all want to be loved and accepted. Let’s teach our children that it’s not about what you have but how you treat others that matters.

For the first time (ever), taking three kids to the beach solo was enjoyable, dare I say relaxing. The ocean has always been my personal happy place, but let’s be honest, taking three kids anywhere is sometimes a chore. Today though, today was different. Canan has learned a healthy respect and love for the surf, and I can see his confidence growing every time he ventures out. Addie knows her limits better than any 4.5yr old I know, and stays right at the edge before backing off into a safe zone at the water’s edge. Cooper, well, one tumble in the waves settled him in sandcastle land pretty quickly. So today, I’m soaking it in and riding these happy vibes as long as they’ll let me. ☀️🏄🏼‍♂️🧜🏻‍♀️ #cananman #sflove #gopro #childhoodunplugged #boogieboard #oceanbeach #pixel_kids #calikid #californialiving #clickinmoms #momtogs #letthekids

It’s been hot here in San Diego and the beach days have been epic! We have entered the stage of life where getting the kids to leave the beach is like pulling teeth. I’m not really complaining, it makes me happy they love it so much! And I don’t even have to bring toys anymore because they have enough fun with all the goodness nature has to offer. Rio and his little buddies play so well together too, it’s such a blast. Being from the midwest, I will never take for granted living near the ocean! Where my beach lovers at?! 🌊

This week was filled with so much joy and laughter, and I owe so much of this to him.
Everyday I jumped in the ocean. Everyday I experienced a new beach. Every meal was pulled from the ocean and absolutely divine. Every night I was out till at least 3am (which if you know me, you know that is next to impossible). In this new chapter of my life I have found it so hard to just let go and have fun. This week was the first time in over 4 years that i really felt free.
I thank @themodernbutleribiza for not only being the most epic concierge of this Spanish paradise, and the best holiday planner one can ask for, but I thank him for being my friend and family, and still reminding me that we were both once wild and free kids that danced at the moon and soaked up the sun, and to always keep that 🔥 alive.
Love you, Mau. Here’s to almost 15 years of friendship and many more journeys to come. ❤️ #ibiza #themodernbutleribiza

We rode 4-wheelers to a bunch of zip lines through the forest. We saw howler monkeys, spider monkeys and white faced capuchins. Then we went to a bar on this beach in a little village that has been on the beach for hundreds of years. The people don’t have much money, but they are living in paradise. They are so kind. One side of the cove is Costa Rica, and the other is Nicaragua. The bar only serves Corona or Imperial, but sitting on that beach, it’s the best tasting beer in the world. The little babies and kids sleep in hammocks between the trees, rocked by ocean breezes while their parents sit and chat. I’ll treasure the memory of sitting there with Jeremy, and our new found Costa Rican friends for the rest of my life. #costarica #nicaragua #heaven #beach #blessingsonblessings #gratefulheart #love

We’ve had many fun times over the last two years of knowing each other, but this is one of my favorite memories to date!! While hosting my @surfsweatserve retreat at @puro_surf we hosted the high school kids for a day of learning and giving back. We first shared with them the damage of single use plastics, the effects they’re having on our oceans, and marine life, and then we headed out for an hour and did a massive beach clean up! It was hot, it was hot, we were all drenched in sweat, we all laughed, learned, and made a difference, together! Watching the awareness build and the care in the hearts of the kids, and the efforts they put out, makes my heart warm every time I think about it! Marcelo’s resort only uses metal straws and he continues to share his love for the ocean and ways to protect everyday. 🙌🏽🌎With the recent news of @starbucks going strapless and reusable and compostable in some areas by 2020, well, I’m just high on life!! A special thank you to all of my retreat guests for sharing the knowledge and the love and cleaning up with us!! Nothing makes me happier than a collective consciousness raising with and FOR each other! What’s your Monday motivation? Tag someone who inspires you to be better! I’d love to learn and follow from inspiring people! 💫✨🌊🌎❤️💥🙌🏽🐳🦀🐠🦈🐋🐚🌴 #stopsucking #lonelywhale #nostrawchallenge

Today we actually had an Ocean date and what looked like poo from the beach was actually good fun. Just like our last golfdate over 2 months ago when Oma was in town and when deers couldnt stay out of the shot.. Very happy to have found a daycare close to the beach so Jayden gets to play with kids his age and... mama & papa Totes can go on a weekly play date which is very important being parents! It was our daily dose before Jayden.m, now we mainly “tag” at the door when one of us can make a session happen. When you are a parent it s not about you anymore “they say” and there is truth in that, but make sure you and yours truly stay happy because that benefits everyone in the family!
Happy Aloha Friday!

I loved seeing my dad play with his grand kids in the sand. I loved watching logan and Nate laughing and enjoying the ocean. I loved being able to spend time with my sis and momma. The Moore family has endured a very big loss this week with the sudden passing of their father Pat last Saturday... but I love how strong each one of them are. I love the knowledge that we have that they will see him again someday and how beautiful that reunion will be. How grateful I am for family and the relationships we have with them. What a blessing it is to see the strength and testimony of these wonderful people who've had to endure so so much heartache. 💕

Our third day in England was relaxing and lovely. We are settling into life here a bit more and better adjusting to the time difference. I personally love it here! *
*
Our day began with sunshine and a traditional English breakfast. We walked the esplanade area of Weymouth down to the SeaLife aquarium, where the kids met Octonauts characters and marveled at ocean creatures (how travel changes when you have children! And how I never put the fact that Octonauts is, in fact, a British show is a mystery).
*
*
Later in our day, we drove to the isle of Portland, a tiny town on a small peninsula that offered stunning views of some beautiful English countryside. *
*
We also discovered Chesil Beach, which hosted a freezing cold rain storm, while we took in a fascinating and breath taking pebble stone beach.
*
*To round out our day, we returned to the Old Harbour of Weymouth...which looks plucked from scenes in a pirate movie! *
*
Our day ended with a freezing cold walk through rain and wind so strong that you had to face your umbrella in front of you, in order to prevent the wind from blowing it inside-out! Where we then scurried into a Chinese restaurant leaving pools of water in our wake and we drank two entire pots of tea to warm up! *
*
After dinner we walked about a block in the weather before bailing and ducking into another restaurant where we drank more tea and ate blackberry crumble with custard and bread & butter pudding with cream (why yes, we will have each gained a stone by the time we return!! 🐿 😂)
*
*
After getting significantly warm again, we continued on. There are arcades everywhere in these parts, so we finally dropped into one and delighted in the games with the kids before braving the storm one final time to get to our bed and breakfast.
*
*
Jesse and I ended our day watching my all time favorite movie Pride and Prejudice. *
*
It was a wonderful and full day. The ten photos in this set don’t begin to illustrate the lovely sights and experiences we witnessed, but I don’t want to bogart your social media feed. So I’ll close with this sampling and hope my riveting descriptions paint a more colorful illustration.
*
Happy Easter everyone! 💗☀️🙏🏻💂🏼‍♂️🐰🥕

Buddah baby ❤️✨ He sat for the first time today on the beach 💪👏 I didn't have either my phone nor my camera but omg he was so happy to be able to sit!! I'm so happy when they are happy, my boys.

But in the in-between moments I'm starting to feel this restlessness.. The need to move.. Hop on a train. Se something new. Se. Smell. Experience. Real India. Because to be honest Goa is a real disappointment. It's so touristic, filled with Britts and Russians past the age of 60. I thought it would be more "hippie" and a totally different wibe. But maybe they left early for the season I don't know..! I've met a few beautiful people here but most of them leave before us or are up to other things. And I really love our host. Feeks like she is the reason I'm staying. That secure feeling that is so good for me as a single mother. Of course I could get on a train to Karnataka or Kerala but my fear is that I will regret leaving. Or regret not leaving. This feeling is one of my most difficult ones in life to handle I think. To know when it's time to stay or go 💫
One thing I know is that I miss indian trains and that I LOVE to travel by train. But with the kids I'm not sure it will be more fun or more stress.. Before leaving I said "I just want to spend time with my children, have sun and the ocean" but now. As always I'm longing for adventure and travel.

Forever swooning over my main squeeze, and so incredibly grateful for our adventures together over the past 10 years. What sights and climates we have experienced, from our hometown in California to Texas to Alaska to Oregon😍. Right after I shared that we were crossing our fingers and manifesting this next duty station on the Oregon Coast, Isaac called me to tell me that all the forms were approved and it’s “official” now 😅😍 (quotes because every now and then the military changes all my plans 🤣 like the time we were almost stationed in Hawaii) but I’m getting ALL my hopes up because exploring this new town this past weekend has been so incredibly beautiful and it looks like we will be moving in the Fall and will be buying our first home together!!!! 🏡 🔑.
.
The kids fell in love with the Ocean and playing on the beach in the sand and tide pools and I am in awe that it will all be right in our backyard when we get there! What a beautiful life you have gifted us, Isaac (@1337_dad)!! My love for you and all you’ve blessed us with is as vast as the universe! 🌌

We love to feel euphoria, ecstasy, bliss, happiness.
___________
We need these emotions. Need. There’s many skillful and unskillful ways to achieve these emotions and experiences. Unskillful-: smoke optimum for two days and feel euphoria and bliss. The downside is addiction and a total loss of wellbeing and Health.
Also this is not necessary because - We all know exactly how to achieve ecstatic euphoria with no side effects. One way is through prayer and deep belief in god - I have not found this but I’m told it works.. another way is through meditation 🧘‍♀️- I have not achieved this yet but I’m told it works. ——Another way is through constant vigilance and care of the body and concentration on the experiences we go through - being present and carefully detached and carefully attached at the same time, (attached to the right things like people we love and people we admire.) There’s no fetishes and ceremonies in the way I practice. There are no parlor tricks or gurus. Just myself practicing life. I’ve experienced euphoria and high points this way. Fleeting. And scarce. Sometimes through - my kids, Sometimes through participation in sports- sometimes through music - sometimes through sitting and watching the ocean and watching time pass. Deep Happiness is achievable through simple action: this is transcendence because it is ordinary to be miserable. The thought of the day after a Bikram Yoga In long beach NY @bikramyoga #healthyfood #vegans @juicepress makes me euphoric and Clear.

⚡️ I'm a list person, so here are 10 things about me: 1. My little sister (Bell) pictured with me here is almost 12 years old; hers is the first and most magical birth I have ever seen and she wants everyone to know that! I've been a doula and placenta encapsulator for 3 years now and have attended 38 births, worked with many families postpartum, and have processed countless placentas. I am applying to nursing school to become a certified nurse-midwife. This work is the dream I never knew I had and I'm extremely glad I listened to the call of the universe telling me it was my path! 2. I grew up in Monmouth&Ocean counties and on the beach whenever I could be! 3. I've been knitting since I was 9 years old, but only really prolifically for the last 5 years or so. 4. I have two extremely spoiled house rabbits, one of which roams around my apartment cageless like a cat. 5. I went to NYU Tisch School of the Arts for acting and though my focus has been on birthwork since graduating. I acted from childhood and then started teaching in high school. I never thought I'd do anything else! I hope to be able to make theater again when I feel ready to live in both of these worlds. 7. I used to dream of drumming for a pop punk band until I sadly learned I have NO rhythm. 8. I am really interested in true crime and listen to TONS of podcasts about gruesome crimes. 9. Halloween is my favorite holiday and I love anything creepy, morbid, weird or strange, including haunted houses and ghost stories. I have a Dept. 56 ceramic Halloween village I decorated a display from as early as my boyfriend will let me until Thanksgiving 🎃 10. Besides birth and postpartum work, I love to teach kids about their bodies and hope to continue to do so beyond my little sister! • I call on the lovely @lizwagnerbiro, @emilieadamsnyc, and @honestlysamantha_ to #MeetTheDoula!

We would’t put on repellant and sunscreen to enter the waters as the chemicals will cause coral bleaching. I continue to love beach combing as it brings me so much joy, but always mindful to not take any endangered shells or closed shells so that hermit crabs find their way home. I tell my kids to keep looking for these treasures on the sea, pick them, hold them, notice them and learn to respect them and take home a few not all. I understand the implications of food choices and can only marvel at how some friends can turn vegetarian to practice what they believe - stop animal cruelty and save the oceans. It’s hard for us to do so, I love having a full plate of mussels and enjoy the flavours. But we play our part in other ways by cutting down the use of plastic. The fact is as a modern consumer, every action we make even just using a piece of paper depletes resources somewhere. But Mother Earth had always suffices when we learn to respect it, take what we really needed. At the end of the day, you me and everyone else live life with such different practices and beliefs, it’s all about mindfulness, respect and having enough.

But then there are he moments that just kinda fall into place and become magical on their own. The ones you'll never forget. The ones the kids will be like oh remember that time...

Wherefore, men are free according to the flesh; and all things are given them which are expedient unto man. And they are free to choose liberty and eternal life, through the great Mediator of all men, or to choose captivity and death, according to the captivity and power of the devil; for he seeketh that all men might be miserable like unto himself.

I witnessed a sharp contrast tonight, unexpectedly, as I went for a walk on the beach. I encountered a woman at the top of the stairs leading to the beach who was actively using a mind altering substance. Upon seeing me and my children, she retreated further into the darkness, forlorn and alone. Just a few steps away was a very fit elderly man who was repeatedly running the multiple flights of beach stairs up and down. He was sweaty and smiling and radiated inspiration, motivation, and joy. My kids were so inspired they asked to run the stairs too. The man stopped me on my way down to tell me how proud he was of my kids for completing the stair run multiple times. I thanked him for his example as he provided them with the inspiration.
Both the woman and the man were each engaged in a solitary activity to cope with the difficulties of life. They were both seeking a release, a feeling of pleasure, happiness and well-being. The choices of one brought isolation and pain, and the other, connection and joy. I thought about the great power all choices have to bring happiness or misery and the need to choose wisely.
As a therapist working in substance abuse recovery, a principle that can't be understated is "do the next right thing." That is, in any moment, make the best choice again and again from moment to moment. Strength of character, self-love, and trust are born of perpetually doing the next right thing.

A beach day makes a new place feel familiar. Boosh was blown away that it’s the same ocean here as it is at Gigi’s house. The boys played in a little “house” made of driftwood and made friends on the beach.

My initial understanding for art came from the intense love my dad showed for art. Happy Father’s Day to all the fathers that pass down their passions so we can live a more fulfilled life.

I've acquired a deep respect for it both from standing on its shore and admiring its vastness and by diving below the surface and being a witness to the wondrous creatures it holds. Once I had children, I knew that I would share with them this love of the ocean. Becoming aquarium members has been the a wonderful, learning experience for my whole family. My kids eagerly move from one exhibit to the next with the same excitement as their very first visit. I'm so thankful to have a place to go to let my kids soak up all the knowledge they can about a resource that is literally our planets life force.”

Just a few years ago I loved driving around in L.A. traffic didn’t bother me at all, thought it was kinda FUN sitting in traffic. Now, two kids and a beach lifestyle later I HATE it more than anything. That’s why I’m just cruzing around here in Venice, SM and Malibu. Even though I love to go to Hollywood every now and then to visit my favorite stores and restaurants, it’s such a drag. Especially bringing one or two kids who don’t like to sit in a car, being placed from car seat to stroller in 91 degrees. I feel more and more that Los Angeles is too big and spread out for me. I don’t “need” it in the same way I did before. I like it small. I like the beach. I like small communities. I like to walk and bike around. I love the mountains, don’t like 91 degrees. I like peace. I like the wind from the ocean. I like sand on my feet and in my kids feet as well. My dog likes the beach. I like Southern California along the coast. All this I realized more yesterday taking my mom up and around town in this heat with my one year old on a weekend with a gazillion of people around. L.A is busy, Venice is crazy on the weekends. I’m living for quiet weekdays. 😀😍😩

FIGHTING SAVES LIFE FIGURATIVELY AND LITERALLY. What a crazy experience I had yesterday rescuing two kids that were drowning. After training I went to the beach late afternoon w/ a friend of mine visiting from Brazil @thiazev. I love the ocean so I went a bit far out swimming while my friend stayed at he beach. I saw two girls pointing something at my direction and I though could be a shark (who surfs in Florida knows they can be often there), but when I saw my friend making a sign like a mad traffic policeman to keep going I realized that could be someone having a hard time. I couldn’t see it because the ocean were messy and waves were blocking my view. I dint hesitated and charged swimming (‘FIGHT or flight’ instinct, which one do you think most fighters would choose?). When I saw it there were two kids and I had to think fast and make a decision which one to help first so I went to the girl cuz she was literally drowning and the boy seemed that he could hang on top for a bit. I dove under her and grabbed from behind but as soon I got to her the boy tried to get a support on me so I had to kick him to be able to swim w her. After a while trying to break the rip current my legs start to burn like in a exhausting fight and the negative thoughts started to pop on my mind and the thought of us three dying was trying to sabotage me and I even thought to let her go but the habit created training and fighting was stronger and I just need a quick adjustment on the strategy. With that made I managed to get a second wing. I told her whatever happened I was going to stay with her, cuz I know I couldn’t live with the idea of having had someone in my arms and let it go. Was a fight for our lives. She vomited couple times and that got her more desperate and agitated which was disturbing the swim. I almost had to choke her out to get her calmer. My friend finally managed to swim closer and help the boy and minutes later I finally could feel the ground getting closer. Since the beginning the idea of having someone in my corner (my friend at the beach) was a good support and motivator and related like in a fight the importance of the corner, not just for directions but...

As a parents my wife and I teach our kids to always clean up after themselves, take care of the items they love and give away the things they don’t use. You know, keep their little world clean. Turns out I’m kind of a hypocrite. I haven’t been doing my part, helping keep our world clean. I’ve been contributing to dirtying up the planet. So, at the beginning of the year I decided to try to give up single use plastics. I haven’t been perfect, but I’m trying. -
In the Los Angeles area alone, 10 metric tons of plastic fragments—like grocery bags, straws and soda bottles—are carried into the Pacific Ocean every day.
-
Over the last ten years we have produced more plastic than during the whole of the last century.
-
50 percent of the plastic we use, we use just once and throw away.
-
Enough plastic is thrown away each year to circle the earth four times.
-
We currently recover only five percent of the plastics we produce.
-
The average American throws away approximately 185 pounds of plastic per year.
-
Plastic accounts for around 10 percent of the total waste we generate.
-
The production of plastic uses around eight percent of the world's oil production (bioplastics are not a good solution as they require food source crops).
-
Americans throw away 35 billion plastic water bottles every year (source: Brita)
-
Plastic in the ocean breaks down into such small segments that pieces of plastic from a one liter bottle could end up on every mile of beach throughout the world.
-
Annually approximately 500 billion plastic bags are used worldwide. More than one million bags are used every minute.
-
46 percent of plastics float (EPA 2006) and it can drift for years before eventually concentrating in the ocean gyres.
-
It takes 500-1,000 years for plastic to degrade.
-
Billions of pounds of plastic can be found in swirling convergences in the oceans making up about 40 percent of the world's ocean surfaces. 80 percent of pollution enters the ocean from the land.
-
The Great Pacific Garbage Patch is located in the North Pacific Gyre off the coast of California and is the largest ocean garbage site in the world. This floating mass of plastic is twice the size of Texas, with plas

Despite the awesome amount of swimming pools here, the beach is my favourite for sure. I love that you can walk along the coast away from the resort if you want to and have the whole ocean there to yourself! .
It’s lovely to lie here reading and swimming in the gorgeous clear sea, then hop over the the waterfront desk and sign out a kayak, windsurf or SUP board, and a sailing boat to use for as long as you like! .
We took part in a free introduction to sailing class this week and learned a lot (although I also capsized more times than I’d like to admit and bruised myself up accordingly! Still, it’s all part of learning right?!) .
I love watching the kids try out these activities too and now begging to go kayaking as often as possible! .
Enjoying our last full day here at @mwlevante with @mwholidays and wishing it could last a bit longer before normality returns. .

When we get close to the beach.. windows go down and it’s in that moment my children realize we are almost there. They are like puppies about to be taken off their leashes and set free. During these trips I am firmly reminded about what truly matters.
It is so easy to let your circumstances, your set backs or Your failed attempts define you. I have had that pity party many times in my life. I have also appeared to have it all together when really everything was falling apart. Thankfully us Griffin’s are tough as nails. The saying is “tough as shit” but poop isn’t tough to me.. it’s actually quite the opposite 😁🙅🏼‍♀️
Nothing and I mean nothing comes easy. Anyone you Think has it all figured out or is doing what you Wish you had the skill to do.. or that they found the love of their life..or has children isn’t your reality. Look at where you are out Now, today and start doing One thing that moves you in a more positive, healthy, and less stressful environment. We manifest what we believe about ourselves FIRST!
For me.. all I need to do is watch my kids stare at the ocean.. which is Free..and be reminded that all that noise in my head means nothing when I can witness time standing still.

Helloooooooo, if you’re new here- thanks so much for thinking I’m worthy enough to follow here on Instagram. I’m really honored and I will try to throw some good info and pics your way. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I hope I can make you smile, help you to get motivated, and realize that life is pretty awesome, even though it’s really tough at times. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Here are a few things you may not have known about me.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1. I have been a photographer for almost a decade and I’ve had my ups and downs, learned a lot of things the hard way, and failed more times than I can count. But I kept my head up (most of the time), hustled hard (but also netflixed and ate ice cream), and kept at it (after thinking about quitting). It’s my dream job and I’m so grateful for all the support, love and friendships that have been formed from this career.
2. I was born in Long Beach, California and even though I moved away when I was pretty young, I will always consider the beach my home. The ocean has magical powers to relieve stress and give you hope & joy. :)
3. I have 3 brothers. They are all so bad ass and have taught me how to play guitar, surf (terribly), skateboard, dreadlock my hair (massive fail), and many many other amazing things. I wouldn’t trade my Bros for the world. They are my hero’s.
4. I have 2 kids. A little 2.5 yr old (Wesley) and a 3 month old girl (Joey). I don’t feel like I’m grown up enough to be their mom. I fail daily, but I love them like crazy and am determined to give them a fun life full of adventure! I will always be their biggest fan (me and their amazing daddy!) 5. I love fly fishing. I haven’t done it nearly enough after I had kids- but I’m making it a goal to do a lot more of it now. The next thing I want to learn? Archery. I’ve had a bow for a few years and only shot it a handful of times. Any tips? Let me know!

Costa Rica is like magic for my mind, body and soul. I have discovered so many ups and downs about myself from our travels and yet each time when I come home, I feel stronger and more present. I have this beautiful vitality for life from Costa Rica. 🌺
The ocean has this incredible and intense energy that I am not familiar with. I have overcome many fears about the ocean and I have been battered in the face, by so many waves and white water, you would think I would give up on surfing already. .. ha! yet, I keep going back. I keep trying... Jordan and I alternate watching the kids on the beach so we can take turns surfing. It is not easy. It is so intimidating going out into to ocean alone and trying to figure it out. There has been many times when I am defeated and come out of the water in tears. Like what am I doing, why do I care? ... Well, because surfing is so thrilling, fascinating, exciting, fun, crazy.. and I want to be able to do it damn it.. Simple, right?
I am grateful for the challenge. I am grateful for the progress we have made with surfing this year.
Although I still get very nervous facing those waves, there are moments when the scales align ⚖️ and when you get your timing just right and actually surf the wave, it’s the most incredible feeling. I can’t help but squeal and cheer out loud, it is such a victory to me, to catch a wave. 🌊 I mean c’mon I agin’t no spring chicken trying new things anymore. 💁🏻‍♀️
It is so exhilarating to me, discovering this new sport for which I am growing to love. As a busy momma who doesn’t always get out much, you can only imagine the thrill that comes with growth like this. Which is why I chose to write about it. I freaking love Costa Rica and our experiences there! I thank the universe for this experience. I am thankful for the connection I have made with the ocean. May this flow continue to grow. 🙏🏼 Anyway, thanks for reading and maybe this will inspire you to start a new hobby or sport or something else that it’s scary and fun which you have always wanted to do. It’s been worth it for me. ✨🧘🏼‍♀️💫🏄🏻‍♀️

Today the clocks went forward announcing the arrival of spring & facebook told me it is my 8th anniversary of friendship with @hanliprinsloo. Both wonderful reasons to celebrate. ‘Some people arrive & make such a beautiful impact on your life, you can barely remember what life was like without them.’ Anna Taylor
Over these years Hanli has shared her world with me. We have explored the kelp forests off Cape Town as sea mists envelop the headland & hundreds of seals dart around us like big eyed torpedoes. We have raced the setting sun, crossing the Mozambique border with only minutes to spare only to break down in the remote sand dunes. We have stayed in shacks on the beach, bombarded by squadrons of mosquitoes the size of frogs & endlessly discussed ocean conservation & adventures.

Being in the ocean with Hanli I have been able to swim with sleeping pods of dolphins as they glide through the water with one eye open, one eye closed, half their brain asleep, half awake. She has taught me to breath hold & descend 20m+ into the big blue where bull sharks circled & observed us with their majestic gaze.
Despite all the amazing oceanic adventures one of the things I have loved most about our friendship is watching her create & develop her foundation, I Am Water. Her mission is to promote ocean conservation through transformative ocean experience. She & her ever growing team take underprivileged kids in Africa & beyond into the ocean and show them the joys of our blue planet & all the glorious critters that live there. Many of these children live in proximity to the ocean but can not swim. With days trip filled with yoga, ocean conservation & many giggles the I Am Water team are opening the minds of hundreds of children to the wonders of our natural world in the hope of creating a more thoughtful next generation.
Whether she is speaking at Davos, or her TED talks, the UBS Global Philanthropy forum or her guided ocean adventures the results are the same. She infects all around her, with her profound love & knowledge of the big blue & our responsibility to protect our oceans. If the oceans die, we die too

owner /session stylist / admin & Wonder Woman at @sass_and_niki_wedding_hair 💋
I'm kind of totally obsessed with bridal hair, HERE I am, just finished styling a wedding party when @bxcsmxth Photographed a cheeky smile from me!!! Thanks Beccy!! Some interesting few facts about me ✨

1. I'm a huge 'thinker'.....I always process everything someone says to me at the time & later in detail, usually twice - and I write evvvvverything down. I document events, conversations and any information I don't want to forget. These notes go years back & I do always joke that I'll write a book one day 🤔 #theidofiles

2. I love heels and stilettos to death but I'm so tall that I'm in resemblance of a giraffe with them on. So you'll find me in flats. Always.
3. I have 2.5 kids who are Summer (13) Van (8) & Mick (47) .. the .5 husband kid!
My kids are my most amazing achievement ever. I still watch them sleeping to this very day👱🏽‍♀️👦🏼 and I can't believe I gave them life!
4. I love blogs and podcasts. Education is so powerful and I read most nights before bed. At zee moment I'm reading Shantaram.. it's such an interesting book about travels though India!
5. Currently I'm renovating our dream home 200m from the Beach! I pinch myself all the time that we were so blessed to get this beach shack in Coolum Beach🐚🌴Renovating and building is so exciting.. I LOVE the process!! If I wasn't a hairdresser I would have been an architect or been working in the building industry somehow for sure!
6. We own a little slice of paradise in Indonesia and one day I'll live in my bikini and swim in the ocean all day everyday 🌴ahh our beautiful dream x
Happy Sunday... I hope your enjoying a Champagne ! It's my birthday so I am🥂😍 x Love Niki 💋

He is gentle, patient, generous, kind, pure-hearted, selfless, slow to anger, quick to listen, discerning, wise, steady and courageous. I woke him up at 4 am on his birthday (the 23rd) and told him to hurry and pack a bag. Watching the excitement unfold across his face through the day as he realized we were en route to the Exumas in the Bahamas was the greatest treasure. Those are the memories I store deep in my heart—watching the wonder that dances through his eyes as he lives life. Jeremiah teaches me so much—how to be content with both the grand and the mundane. How to be hospitable and generous, faithful and trustworthy. We swam with sharks, stingrays, turtles and pigs. Snorkeled in a huge grotto, ate fresh conch salad right out of the ocean on a massive sand bar, and swam in crystal blue water on the Tropic of Cancer. We explored the islands like two kids in paradise, ate the best Bahamian food alongside the locals, and cracked coconuts open by a cave on our own private beach. We prayed over our marriage, our family, our ministry and Jeremiah’s unique and powerful gifts of the Spirit. Then my phone broke and we lost every single image and video we had taken, besides these 5 or 6 we text for Auden to see. 😖😫😭 I cried really hard when I realized every image was lost—but only because they were the absolute BEST pictures of my tender-hearted and gracious groom. Jeremiah makes 30 look fresh and seasoned. He makes fatherhood look natural and fulfilling. He makes marriage easy and edifying. He makes leadership look quiet and humble. He makes authority look sacrificial and steady. I love doing life and ministry alongside my teammate. He is our watchman, our warrior, our covering and our leader. Happy 30th birthday, Jeremiah Lee. You are the best thing on this side of Heaven to happen to me. 💙

As mentioned in our last update, we have really taken to "lake life" here in North Carolina and the US. As Aussies who grew up by the beach, we do miss that energy of the ocean, but there is a calmness of being out on a lake, and we love the peacefulness of walking the trails around the lakes through the forest.
And we also LOVE all the water based activities on lakes like stand up paddle boarding, kayaking, canoeing, boating and of course camping by a lake!

And growing up in a warm climate in OZ we have always chased the sun and embrace summer travel as much as possible, although we have also really taken to the 4 seasons here in NC.

Recently we were excited to partner with Columbia Sportswear which is a brand that resonates with us as their gear allows you to stay cool and outdoors longer in the summer months. We had fun testing a range of their clothes for the kids and us on our fave lake here in Raleigh, and published a blog post about it. You can read that via the link in our bio, and go grab some cool new travel clothes for yourself.

after the end of a beautiful relationship, after the stress of finding out my celiac isn’t confirmed and could be a worse thing or just a prolonged diagnosis where i now have to eat gluten so i’m Mr Poopy for the next few weeks (trying to be okay with it lol,) and after feeling worried/nervous/scared to be honest with those closest to me, i am tired. however, i am also feeling as full as possible. i don’t know how i am capable of that, but oh my ocean, i am.
.
.
life is like a tidal wave. you never know it’s coming, or even if you did trust the weather, the notification came too late. i’m okay with missing notifications on my phone, if it means i’m drowning in the sunset with some best pals by the ocean. i’m okay with not checking my email for a few weeks, if it means i’m spending my moments in the moment when the weather is actually nice. i’ve been forgoing some important relationships and communications, alongside my EP which is finally coming out!!!, simply because life has been this constant, never ending tidal wave. later this month, i’ll be having a long awaiting ADHD texting appointment. that, alongside my various GI issues, may provide me with some answers and tools to use for the future. the future that i want to be in.
.
.
i’m disappointed i haven’t finished the projects i’ve set out to conquer for y’all, albeit i think you understand. i love you, i care about you, and i want to fulfill the expectations that are put on me. for now, in this breath of fresh, salty air - i’ll forgive myself for being delayed. i’ll let go of this baggage like a kite taking flight. and when i’m reeled back in, like i am being now, i will accomplish these dreams. i am. i am still learning.

We’re off to Gulf Shores Alabama in less than a month. Every time we get in the car now, I hear “are we going to the beach??” Neither of them has ever been. But they know there’s sand. And water. Lots of sand and water!
.
They love playing in the sand in our driveway and on the street. I’m going to pack lots of measuring cups, spoons, cookie cutters, and anything clever to use for building sand castles. I imagine they’ll be like Olivia in the book Olivia and be “pretty good” at it!
.
.
For now I’m in planning mode. Learning about the tides, the moon, the ocean, buoyancy (will it sink or float?). We’ll learn about the types of shells we may see. We’ll learn about the sea life prevalent in that area. I’m a mountain > ocean person, but I’m excited to experience the vastness and magic and beauty of the open waters, through the eyes of my kids! .
.
Here we have sand pillows and a bit of giggling. They’re practicing for our trip, I’m sure. 🤗❤️ And for now they are total best friends. I’m hoping we’re doing what we can to continue fostering that relationship so it STICKS! A friend for life is one gift we can give them that will last forever.

I was 8 years old. The sun was barely peering in through the bottom half of the blinds when the alarm started screaming at me to wake up. I’ve always been a snooze pusher, buying 20 more minutes of warmth under the covers back then was a necessity. As my Mormor’s voice grew louder, barking orders to get up and my bathing suit on, my stomach filled with Monarchs and Swallowtails. I slid my bamboo thin legs into my sweatpants, pulled the hood of my UCONN sweatshirt over my eyebrows and headed out the door grabbing my swim bag on the way.
*
As we drove 5 miles an hour under the speed limit I watched the windshield build up with condensation. The fog outside looked cold and blue-grey. I hated today. I hated all Saturdays from May 1st - June 1st. Saturday mornings, 7:30am. Swim lessons at the beach. *
Satanic really, if you ask mean. Kids, you’re going to get up early as fuck on the weekend, head to the beach and spend an hour swimming in ocean with an air temp topping out at around 62’, water about 10below that. You’ll injest enough salt water to properly clean out you colon upon returning home, your face being submerged periodically by the unpredictable flailing from the kids swimming in front of you.. Between the wave induced water boarding, convulsive shivering, grape sized goose bumps and smurf blue lips it’s any wonder why no one ever considered this to be added military’s torture tactics.
*
While swim lessons were legitimately the most scarring experience of my childhood, I did succeed at transitioning from minnow to reef shark by my 4th year.
*
Once I learned to swim, you couldn’t get me out of the water. I wished for a pool ever candle my breath extinguished, penny I tossed into a fountain, eyelash I blew off my mom’s index finger. My fingers and toes spent more time looking like raisins than not in the summer, even if it meant spending 2 hours in my shallow bath tub practicing holding my breath. *
I haven’t changed much and love photographing children who have the same relationship with water, my fellow fish people.

I would rather pass my days lying in the middle of dirt roads, staring at the full moon with a bottle of summer red in my palms. I would rather have kids when it suits me, not when society expects or throws shoulds. I would rather live in a hammock on a beach for six months, and write like my soul means it. I would rather be horribly broke at times, than married to a job because a mortgage payment has my ass on a hook. I would rather own moments, than investments. I would rather eat alone, than sit with women who bore me at 'Wives’ Night.” I would rather swim naked with bioluminescence, have it fall like fireflies from my hair, my breasts, my back. I would rather do handstands naked in the moonlight when no one’s watching than pick bridesmaid dresses. I would rather learn from life than rack up debt, in a desk. I would rather drink the ocean, again and again—celebrate being madly alive. I would rather my love be defined by love itself, and nothing more or less. I don’t need a ring on my finger to prove that I am worthy. I do not need a degree to prove that I am intelligent. I do not need to own a piece of earth with some wood on top of it—to feel successful. My savings account has diddly to do with my richness. I would rather sprawl my single ass out like a lioness each morning and enjoy each corner of my empty bed. I will take a job I love and freedom over a pension, any day. I will not work and work and work to live when my body is old and I am tired. Not everyone should have kids, and my eggs aren’t expiring. I will not drink the societal Kool-Aid on a bus, nor will I drink it on a train. Not on a plane, with a goat, in the rain, in the dark, in a tree, with a fox, in a box! I will not jump through societies’ hoops and red tape, the treasure hunt in the rat race we chase. If we must have milestones—mine will be measured by how much joy I have collected at the end of each day and how often in this life I have truly, deeply, opened.

☀️ TOMORROW! ☀️ We would love for you to join us at our beach cleanup tomorrow afternoon to help us raise awareness, remove some debris, and work to #savetheocean! Details from one of our previous posts➡️ // BEACH CLEANUP INFO: Saturday’s cleanup. It’s from 12:00-3:00 (you can stay as long or as little as you want between that time! ☺️) located at Bellows, the section open to the public, NOT the part of the beach that you need a military ID to be let in. 😉 As always, we recommend bringing a filled reusable water bottle, reef-safe sunscreen such as @allgoodbrand, & a bag or bucket from home (we’ll have some extra you can borrow if you need). ☀️ Thank you to everyone who has joined us at our cleanups in the past and we hope to see you again this month! Thank you for working with us to #SaveTheOcean and #SaveThePlanet 🌊🌎 // Huge THANK YOU to our partners @keiko_conservation and @waterinspired! Along with our sponsors @allgoodbrand @oakley @clarklittleclothing @4ocean @7seasrope @oneoceandesigns for the small selection of giveaways we’ll have and @knektusa for donating 2 of their poles as prizes! 🙏🏽 Very grateful for the love and support on our mission to spread ocean conservation. #beachcleanup #plastic #plasticpollution #saveourseas #nobluenogreen #hawaii #oahu #takeaction #environment #conservation #oneoceandiving @kennaaloha
