Feeling Grateful

September 13, 2009 | Filed Under Children, Landscape 

The past few days I’ve been feeling grateful for so many things. Although my actual gratitude list is very, very long, I wanted to share a few that have really been at the forefront of my mind.
Hawaii- I am so grateful for being able to live on this gorgeous and diverse island. My husband and I met here, our children were born here and it’s the most amazing place to raise a family. Everything I love is right at my fingertips from surfing and scuba diving in the ocean to rock climbing and hiking in the mountains. When I step outside each morning and inhale the fresh, breezy air, I feel like adventure is just waiting to happen. And when it turns into just another average day, there is nowhere else I’d rather be. For me, Hawaii is home.
Friends- One of the disadvantages to living on a small island in the middle of the Pacific is the distance from family. Because of this, I’ve developed a very wonderful and tight group of friends. We support each other and help each other, trade babysitting and throw some mean pot-luck parties! We’ve grown so close because we don’t have anyone else to rely on here. When family is an ocean away, I am incredibly grateful for good friends.
Photography- I’m terribly grateful to pursue my passion of photography. I really love what I do and if you know me, you know that I could go on taking photos for hours. Photography is so many things to me. It’s a creative outlet, it’s artistic expression, it stimulates my mind and pushes me to stretch my limits and grow. I love a good challenge and when I’m behind the camera, the challenges are limitless…in a very good way.

    Beautiful Jenni! Words and photos. The second one makes me want to lay under that tree for hours.
