#hoomaluhiabotanicalgardena place where she likes to go to clear her mind and exercise. Michele comes from a long line of Native Hawaiians and she can't imagine calling anywhere else home. Some of her childhood friends have left the island and moved to the mainland or to other countries and she loves to travel to go see them, and jumps at the opportunity to explore new places. Michele is one of the happiest most content 30 year olds I have ever met. I have no doubt that her strong family roots and her surroundings play a huge role in her happiness.#30atthirty#hawaii#happiness#vog
Patty was interviewed at the Lloyd Center Ice Rink (the mall rink where#tonyaharding once practiced) Patty has been skating most of her life, she took a break thru college and then started skating again as an adult. She moved to Portland Oregon when she was offered a job with Nike working in sustainability. Patty found it difficult to find friends in her new city so she turned to the ice again and now she's skating 3-4 times a week with a friend. She has a coach and is working on learning new moves and has found the challenge of ice skating has brought out a whole new meaning than it did when she was younger.#30atthirty#portland#pdx#adultsskatetoo#justfly
