Thanks for all the warm wishes on Amanda's birthday yesterday. We feel your love. With our birthdays and Mother's Day so close together, we held a joint celebration at my new pad with extended family and friends. Oh and don't worry, we'll be milking it for days and weeks to come. ❤🙃❤
Life keeps repeating us lessons if we don't pay attention.
We can allow the poor behaviour of others define, or rise to be better than before; let go of how it affects within, and find the courage necessary to address it externally.

Hi guys, been experiencing issues with both my Instagram accounts which don't even understand why. Engagement is really good on metrics but publicly shows weird.
I'll have to work on that. I also have had some phone connection issues, and my battery might be hinting it needs replacement. 😁 Technical difficulties folks.
Outside of that, busy with some projects, have some articles I wrote, as well as my own self care.
I look forward to continue sharing, and hope those of you who like what I do, and see what I do and who I am are one and the same thing, continue to enjoy and gain something from it.
Personally, never saw it turning into what it has, let alone that it'd run this long.
🐟Osprey🐟on a perch near its nesting platform. Beautiful big raptors who primarily hunt fish, they choose nesting sights that provide high vantage spots near water. Nesting and perching platforms help encourage Ospreys to nest safely instead of on objects like utility poles, boats, or hunting blinds. #Osprey in #NewJersey
Reasons why I love Portland, Maine so much 👇
1. The FOOD!
2. The coastline
3. It’s where my now-husband proposed (the Portland Head Light! Then we immediately shot over to the gorgeous @thepresshotel)
4. All. The. Beer.
5. How beautiful the little city is, especially in the winter 😍
What place (other than where you live!) holds a special place in your heart? And, why? 💕⭐️
This week I will be sharing some images related with my trip to the province of Eastern Cape, South Africa. “The Xhosa people is an ethnic group which mainly inhabit he province of Eastern Cape, South Africa. Xhosa are divided into different tribes related to their cultural heritage. Currently approximately 8 million people of Xhosa origin are distributed across the country. Xhosa language is the second most spoken language in the country after the Zulu language.
The apartheid system denied the Xhosa South African citizenship, but allowed them to have their own communities with their own self government, which were called; Transkei and Ciskei, both now part what is known as the Eastern Cape Province, where the majority of the population lives”
Esta semana estaré compartiendo algunas imágenes relacionadas con mi viaje a la provincia de Eastern Cape South Africa. “La tribu Xhosa es un grupo étnico los cuales habitan mayoritariamente la provincia de Eastern Cape, South Africa. Los Xhosa están divididos en diversas tribus relacionadas con su herencia cultural. Actualmente aproximadamente 8 millones de personas de origen Xhosa están distribuidos alrededor del país. La lengua Xhosa es la segunda lengua materna más hablada en el país después de la lengua Zulu.
El sistema apartheid le negó a los Xhosa la ciudadania sudafricana, pero les permito tener sus propias comunidades con su propio auto gobierno, las cuales fueron llamadas; Trasnkei y Ciskei, ambas ahora parte de los que se conoce como Eastern Cape, donde la mayoría de la población habita”

You can’t imagine the privilege of being able to get so close to this nocturnal king and actually capturing a decent portrait. I shot this using my #sony90mmmacro and honestly it was the best lens for the job. For me there has always been this mysterious aura surrounding Owls, listening to Native American wisdom passed down in literature and even amongst some family members, the Owl has often been portrayed as a symbol of death. Given what we know scientifically it’s easy to understand why. I digress however, the Owl is an amazing creature and beautiful one at that and we should do everything in our power to protect and preserve its natural habitats and the species as a whole.
