On January 17th, sitting in a wee café in Santa Monica, I declared that on Oct 1st I would jump on a one way flight to Hawaii to celebrate my 29th birthday on the beach. (VERY!) little did I know what the next 9months would have in store. In fact, what I know for sure is that I didn’t need to know anything…I needed to trust that if it was meant to happen, it would unfold + unveil itself exactly as it should. And that my sweet friends, is exactly what has happened.
There is lots I want to update you on….
…like the 9hr training weekend I had last weekend, when I rode like a grump and realized that this lil bod of mine had put in all that it possibly could. And then the impact I have on those I love the most when I go to this place – grumpy Steph off of a bike ride is really no one else’s issue, yet my sweet Bro who I live with sure got it handed to him. #i’msorry
….the power of being surrounded by people you adore. My Bro tops these charts. I also have the absolute honour of working with a remarkable crew of lulu’ers. From bubbles in the board room to luau’s, I left the office feeling especially blessed! While I often heard “this is inspiring”, my wish is that they realize that I am simply a reflection of their own awesomeness – THEY are inspiring. With a very special call out to TeamRecruiting – they are rare birds and those kind you don’t find everyday. And those who came out to The CorkerCosman Birthday Picnic …that was rad too.
….ohhhhh, that moment in time that my inbox hit 0. #idon’tevenknowwhattosay
…my proud moment in time when I packed my bike all by myself for the very first time! It wasn’t without grease on my forehead and a very dry seat post, yet what I know for sure is that this won’t be the last time I’m packin’ this girl up, so goshdarnnit, I can pack my bike on my own, don’tchaknow.
…and just like that, I boarded a plane for a day in San Diego to visit a very special friend and her sweet family before jumping on an early morning flight to Maui tomorrow. We lunch’d in the park, we watched the sunset off the cliffs, we read bedtime stories and we celebrated girlfriendness over dinner!
Consider this your PSA: this hub o’Corker is about to get seriously infested with unapologetically awesome aloha!
To my tribe, my readers, my most special friends, my sweet family and my Bro…I love you guys. You’ve left me humbled by the power of the collective spirit. And if you must delete me/ block me/ unsubscribe, i will understand. (i would probably do the same…or maybe not?! )
As I do, with an exploding heart of gratitude,
Your Biggest Fan. xo
