#GoBikiHI

Today I went for my first real Biki ride around Ward/Kakaako. It was super fun riding around the neighborhood. I still need to work on the transition of getting on and off the bike, but other than that, everything went well. I look forward to riding again and hope you will give it a try!

Yesterday I attended a wedding celebrating with the fabulous couple, friends and co-workers. Matt was unable to attend but he was there in spirit. Well he was there to drop me off and pick me up. Haha! That is another story I will save for later. The reason why I wanted to write about this occasion is because I did not give a card to the bride and groom. SO – My plan is to share this with the couple when I am done writing.
(This saved me $5.00) Enjoy!

Dear Jesse and Bianca

Congratulations! You guys are entering a new chapter in your life! WOO HOO! A couple of marriage tips from our family to yours:

  1. The $65.00 is non-refundable (regarding the marriage certificate).
  2. Pick your battles wisely. Reminder yourself, is this a deal breaker?
  3. Say “I love you” often and mean it.
  4. Video game time (for him) is yoga time (for her).
  5. You might be total opposites, but that is what will make your marriage great.
  6. Compromise and never sacrifice.

Love you both – The Nickel Ohana

Happy Birthday Tobi

Happy New Year!

Wishing everyone a happy, healthy and prosperous 2017. May you and your loved ones experience more love, happiness and laughter. Speaking of laughter, I hope you can enjoy this short video I put together about a dancing carrot. The carrot is locally grown by Kahumana Organic Farm & Cafe and was distributed by Oahu Fresh. Two awesome companies helping to feed Hawaii.

New Year, New Goals
I am learning how to film and edit video for my personal and professional growth. The video is a little shaky to me – and I am working on trying to fix that. Feel free to give feedback below – would love to get your thoughts!

Daily Intention

I have been practicing yoga for over fifteen years. Yoga truly is amazing and gives me such joy – mentally and physically. In each class, our instructor will ask us to set an intention. The intention is differs from a goal. Setting an intention is setting a focus on something specific that you value now. Setting a goal is something is focuses on the future. An intention can be something deeply personal or something physical. It’s a continual aspiration to guide you toward balance in your life. There is no real right or wrong way to set an intention as long as it has meaning to you.

Yesterday I attended Laura Mary’s 8:15PM class and it inspired me to not only set an intention when in class – but to do this daily. To keep an intention top of mind throughout the day.

Today’s intention: #LetItGo. Elsa said it best to “Let it Go”.
Reminding myself I can only control my actions and reactions.
