I am not sure why I am making such a stupid face, but it was my second time cutting Jamon in my life. The first time was in 2001 when my house mate Richard and I bought an entire Jamon for a Jamon party. Those were some good times in Madrid. This time, it was in Puerto Rico.

It's simple enough, really. The beauty is in the details.
From an epic rope descent to massive orange archways, tunnels, waterfalls and occasional slots, this place is definitely one of my favorites in Utah. And we had it all to ourselves, too, which was pretty special. Mother Nature, I salute you!
If you've ever struggled with body-image issues give Tahnee's story a read below. The words she wrote about her experience with this program tugged at my heart strings. I can SO relate girl! Motivational Monday goes to you Tahnee, thank you for being a light! In her words:⠀
"ITS A PROCESS, YES! 🌴☀️⠀
But it's worth it // ❤️⠀
When I look back on old photos like this, I STILL can draw back the emotional battle I struggled with. It's clear as day. I remember the feeling of being the fat one, the tall bigger girl who "carried " her weight well. I'd often hear, 'Your so lucky your tall, you can hide it easily' in a way they were right, but when the clothes came off and I stared at myself in the mirror, followed by a breakdown in tears sitting on the floor looking down at my gut, it was pretty hard to hide from it. ⠀
If you've seen me post photos of my girlfriends and how amazingly attractive they are, imagine the feeling and thoughts running through my head when the text comes through on a Friday to meet them for dinner and drinks, 'wear a pretty dress' 🙈⠀
Having the support from just one person is so vital to living a forfilled life. I was so lucky to have beautiful friends who encouraged me to step out, reach out, educate myself, dig deep to find out WHY I wanted to lose the weight, and then work with me to figure out the HOW. It's funny when you are forced into a position to get real with yourself and be honest and express the real truth, the how is just so easy. There was no amount of money they could mention to me that was going to stop me from buying this nutritional cleansing system. ⠀
You see when you can accept and see the value in it and that it's adding to your life, you start to really question how much am I worth? Truth is, I'm a gem of a human and I have no price. It took me a long time to see this. But 4 years later and in Bali in a bikini sipping on a blue lagoon with my best friends, actually living, not just existing ~ 55lbs lighter and not gaining back any weight, I dare say It's the best thing I've ever done for myself."⠀
Some are put in our lives for a reason. If you're still reading this and can relate I'd love to help 💕

We find beauty in decay... inspiration in unusual places... sisters in #HavanaCuba @pierdie
Guys I can't stop thinking about how amazing Cuba was! It was definitely one of my best travel experiences. What some may find as a nuisance... the lack of modern amenities and luxuries, the next to non-existent wifi, and just the minimalist lifestyle in general, was actually quite refreshing. For me it was a lesson in being content... in making do! A sweet reminder that joy & happiness is a choice and that excess is truly unnecessary! Go with an open mind and you will have an experience of a lifetime! #theartofslowliving#seekthesimplicity#finditliveit
