St. Barths: Jumping into the New Year

Happy 2016! I love the first day of a new year. There’s something refreshingly positive about the opportunity to start again — to do better, to love harder, to dream bigger. This will be a good year.

I’m sharing more snapshots from St. Barths. I made a new years goal to conquer a few fears of mine while on the boat. I’m not exactly the most adventurous person when it comes to heights. I prefer the ground. BUT, a giant water slide and a jump off the boat were part of my challenge.

P.S. Don’t let the thrilling photos fool you — it took about 30-minutes and a few Hail Mary’s from the top to work up the courage to jump. Bonus? My 11-year-old brother thinks I’m cool again.

Happy New Year! May you jump into 2016 with courage.
