True Friendships

Are Worth More Than Gold

Hello World 🌻 Happy Day My Friends β›΅πŸ¦ˆβ›΅

I’ve lived on both the East coast and the West coast all my life, have been to many tropical islands and have always been a huge lover of the ocean and the beautiful animals that call it their home. πŸ¦ˆπŸ³πŸ¬πŸŸπŸ πŸ™πŸšπŸ¦€πŸ¦πŸ‹

I’ve seen tons of sea turtles, baby sea turtles hatching, whales, the mating ritual of manta rays, owned a 30ft sail boat, have gone deep sea fishing tons of times and yet as much time as I’ve spent near, in and on the ocean, I’ve never seen dolphins in the wild 😫

Until today πŸ¦ˆβ›΅

Knowing how much I love the ocean, my bestie surprised me with a going away present of a private 2 hour dolphin tour and omg it was incredible

We were out for about 45 minutes without seeing any and then my bestie shouts..

Over there ➑️➑️➑️➑️

OMG!!!! There was a huge Mama and her baby right in front of us..

Of course I couldn’t get a picture because I was in awe and lost it crying lol… Yeah I’m a huge cry baby hahaha yet to see them in the wild was an amazing feeling and experience. I was truly awe-stricken.

We drove around for a while and nothing…

Other than the beautiful sound of the waves crashing against the boat and the salty water spraying my face… Not to mention the colors of the water and other beautiful boats at sea

The other dolphin cruises were on the radio all saying “nope nothing out here!” 😫

Then as we were heading back..

BAMπŸ’₯ there they were…

(Click on the videos)

One was so close I could follow her shadow to wait for her to come up for air…..😁😁😁

It was truly an amazing day and I am so very grateful to my dear friend Patti…

She has been my rock through the bus conversion, has let me cry, scream and just be wherever I need to and I am beyond grateful for her!..

My point in all this is:

Don’t ever forget to thank those in your life that go out of their way to see you smile…

The ones that unconditionally want nothing more than for you to be happy…

They are far and few between my friends and it’s always nice to let them know how much you love and appreciate them.

So thank you Patti for all you do and for all you are!! Love you so much..Today, forever & beyondπŸ’–

Thank you for an amazing day I am truly grateful πŸ’–πŸŒ»πŸ’–

Have a beautiful day world πŸ’–

Hello World

Today after I learned that I am 400 miles away from the predicted path of hurricane Irma and won’t be affected by it I spent the whole day making window curtain insulation panels and getting shelves put up cause I decided that if Southern Florida needs help I want to be able to go there in the bus and help being that I’m in Florida too!!! So I’m totally on a mission get this done  πŸ™β€πŸ™β€πŸ™

Luckily the bus is really really insulated well yet I wanted to make something that covered the windows for privacy, that I could put up and take down easily and that helped insulated the windows themselves cause they are big and there’s 10 of them… So I came up with the idea to use a thin insulation (reflectix)  that prevents condensation and cover it with a Navy blue material so the inside at night matched the theme of my blog Hello World Goodnight Universe and it turned out perfectly… πŸ€—β€πŸ€—.


I still need to add the Velcro and finish decorating them yet here’s what it looks like so far (excuse the tape I used to hold them in place lol) it’s all coming together and I’m so so excited and so grateful πŸ™.

The total I need to get everything in order for me to have electricity to run the fridge and other things while I’m stopped at night without using the engine battery is down to $554 and I am so grateful to ask that have helped me get this farπŸ˜€β€πŸ€—.


I am still needing to purchase a 2000 watt inverter and two 12volt marine batteries as well as a 200 watt solar panel kit which would keep the inverter batteries charged at all times πŸ€— My gofundme link is still active and is below for anyone that can help or if anyone knows where I can get those things cheaper please let me know.

Compassion Is Passion Straight From The Heart

Compassion helps lift those that may be hurting to bad to lift themselves up!


Hello World,

Having compassion is motivation to go out of your way to help another through emotional, spiritual or physical hurts or pains. It can lift someone up when they don’t have the strength to lift themselves up, it can be a shoulder for their tears or an ear to just be there to listen.

Compassion is passion straight from the heart… It can’t be taught or found from outside, it comes from deep within. We never know what someone maybe going through and even if you haven’t experienced what someone may be dealing with, being compassionate can be just what that person may need.

Always be compassionate because without compassion we lose what being human is truly all about!!!

Always be kind, always have compassion because our world needs it desperately more and more each day!

β€πŸ™β€πŸ™β€πŸ™

Please help if you are able or share the link of you cannot …Any and all help is extremely appreciated… It’s time for me to heal, it’s time for me to live again. Much love to you all and thank you!
