Switzerland was nothing short of amazing! Great times with even better people! Big thanks to @lumecube for making it happen! Check out the full length video that we made of our trip. It’s live now! Link is in my bio. Let me know what you think of it! #litbylume #switzerlume #myinterlaken #lumecube

At the time I took this photo (this afternoon), I had intentionally focused on the cluster of leaves in the foreground. However, it wasn’t until I began editing the photo, that I realized the heart shaped leaf illuminated by the sunlight. Sometimes we pay too much attention to what’s right in front of us and not the bigger picture. But enough of the counselor talk. Hope you enjoy the photo! .

This summer I had the privilege to go on an epic trip to Switzerland with the @lumecube crew. The full video from our trip drops this Friday. Be sure to check it out! #lumecube #litbylume #switzerland @alpinraft

Ain’t nothing wrong with solo adventures. Even if that means stacking rocks as a tripod and climbing coconut trees to get a shot before the 10 second self timer goes off!

Got to check out the new @rvcasport mats this morning at @sunsetbchjiujitsu, all while taking pictures and getting my arms twisted by uncle Alan Sitt. It’s looking sharp in there! If you’re on the North shore and would like to train, hit up @ezra_sitt. @rvca #rvcasport #jiujitsu #training #northshore #hawaii

Not the best place to be, but it makes for a cool shot! I definitely got my nose flushed out after this one.

I’ve been seeing this pair of Iwa birds lately. They appear out of no where, circle gracefully for a little while and then disappear. I couldn’t resist getting a photo of them while in the water the other evening. The cloud backdrop was just too good.

The sky can be a show off once in a while! Last night was one of those times! Almost looks like an erupting volcano. What do you think?

Although this photo isn’t from two years ago, the commitment that I made to the woman in it is. Happy two years @kaudoll 😘
