This sabbatical has had a lot of meaning and milestones to celebrate and contemplate. Six years have passed since the amazing Adobe acquired our little design firm, Ideacodes, 10 years since we got married here in Waikiki with family and friends around us, and 26 years since our first date. To say that my life has been blessed is an understatement. Every day I’m grateful for my extended ohana, the opportunity to live and pursue my dreams, and the freedom and creativity that each day affords. And to the man I’ve shared it all with, thank you @maxkiesler for your true love, loyalty and never ending friendship and support. May we continue to dream big and rock life. Love you

Saw the most impressive fireworks show on Tuesday right in front of our lanai above the ocean. It went on for what seemed like 30 mins and featured the most advanced fireworks I’ve ever seen! Thanks @royal_hawaiian

Mahalo Waikiki for the fastest and longest ride I’ve ever had (according to my surf watch)! Such a sweet SSW 5-7 ft day

Long period SSW swell showed up today and you could tell – with sets breaking at outer reefs from north to south and out farther than the eye could see from land. It’s always amazing to witness the power of the ocean. Got three good rides today, a great workout, a big adrenaline smile on my face and an endless appreciation for the ocean
