hungry hearts

We are all hungry, filled with dissatisfaction, cravings & desire for fullness. Sometimes this is good. Sometimes not. This is my journey of learning to feed my heart & share the feast with those around me. This might sound cheesy – oh well – hopefully if you knew me you'd know I'm serious. (and I'm also sometimes cheesy)

    OMG this is so much! OK… let’s make a plan or it will never happen… I am wanting to go find Dolphins on west side so can you add this to your list… Let’s do this nice n early one morning then proceed to Hanauma bay to snorkel one day, Kimo’s friend can help you catch waves from a small paddle boat :), And then we can go somewhere in heals! Also I’ve been wanting to hike to China Mans Hat! Maybe we can do the hair and undies in there somewhere also lol. 😉 LOVE YOU!
