    Amelia Island, Florida. My husband and I went to a nice B&B for our anniversary. It was a meaningful trip for me. I woke up early, before him, and went for a run from one side of the Island to the other. I thought about my family who lived there years ago. My mother while I ran through downtown Fernandina, she lived there as a teenager and then my grandmother when I reached the beach. The last time I walked that beach was when I was a child looking for shells with her. She is no longer with us so I choked up a little as I watched the sunrise over the Atlantic. I felt close to her. I hope to live there, like my family did. It feels like home.

    Ocean Bay Park on Fire Island in N.Y. This time of year is almost surreal. The quiet surrounding inspires me to write or paint.

    Eleuthera, Bahamas for our 20th anniversary. My wife and I found a tiny beach (about 100 feet across) accessible only by boat, swimming or wading at low tide. We waded over around some rock outcroppings and spent the day totally secluded with each other. We snorkeled the reefs just off shore, sun bathed and drank to our hearts content. One of the best days ever!!

    Yellowstone National Park. My husband and I made a cross country drive with our 16 year old son. It was after the sudden death of my mother-in-law and we wanted to do something we had only talked about. It was very moving to all of us to see the spectacular creation and enjoy mother nature at her finest.

    Riviera Maya, Mexico! Absolutely beautiful place and the people are all so friendly. I would gladly go back on the hospitality shown alone (but the place is breathtakingly beautiful). Amazing country with the most hospitable people I have ever met, everyone greets you with “Hola!”

    Key West, Florida. The laid-back vibe forced me to take a deep breath and relax. That was something I really needed!

    I spent a month in New Zealand! Milford Sound specifically was my favorite, I did a 5 hour kayaking tour through the peaceful, untainted waters, with massive fjords jutting out of the sea! Being in nature makes you realize how amazing this world is, incredible, inspiring, beautiful!

    A visit to Rarotonga in the Cook Islands this January provided stunning beaches and smiling, friendly locals. The flower wreaths that adorned the heads of most of the women made me smile from the joyfulness of it. A halo of coral surrounds the island and turquoise waters were warm and inviting. Strange though it sounds, particularly inspiring were the crypts on the lawns of most residences-their land is passed on to the family and the previous family members reside to bless and protect!

    Imagine a dirt trail, shadowed by trees, transitioning into a sandy path complemented by flowers, grasses, and lizards, leading to a straw covered hut overlooking all of one of the most beautiful beaches in Florida. This is my description of
    Palm Beach Dunes in Juno Beach, Florida. Located next to Loggerhead Marine Life Center, this secret trail that leads to a quiet and serene view has become my oasis and escape to where I can foster creativity and and reach utmost peace.

    I just spent some time working in Tuscon, AZ. In the 1960’s Tuscon enacted laws that limit artificial light used outdoors at night, as a result the night sky is so dark that you can see more stars than the majority of places in the continental Unites States. I had forgotten exactly how awe enducing the heavens can be! Stare at the sky while listening to the sounds of the desert, the light breeze in the creosote and coyotes howling in the distance, and you are reminded that life persists even in the harshest conditions. THAT is inspirational!

    Last Spring Break we traveled to Little Gasparilla Island with our children and great friends. I had not visited there since I was a small child, and was pleasantly surprised with how magical the island remains! We ran down foliage covered dirt paths, found loads of pre-historic shark teeth, swam in the blue water, went fishing, and generally lazed around. As a Florida girl, this vacation brought me back to my childhood and brought me such joy to share it with my family and friends. Memories of this vacation have been carrying me through the year!

    Across from my parents house in Va Beach is an empty lot, the house torn down years ago. You can see a glimpse of the water through the trees, but if you walk to the back of the property there is a path weaving through the woods with places you have to duck the vines hanging from broken tree limbs. Gradually the path slopes down and you are rewarded with an old bench, and a beautiful view of the water, peaceful with sun dancing on the water.

    My family and I went to Ft Myers, Florida and Sanibel island last summer and it was beautiful. I can see why people like to retire down there. It’s a tranquil getaway. The beaches are quiet and relaxing.

    Miramar Beach, FL. About three weeks ago, my husband and I experienced a failed adoption. We decided to get away and process our thoughts and emotions of the already emotional roller coaster of adoption, and we went to Miramar Beach. We were able to gain clarity and insight into ourselves and our next steps of how we will grow our family . I will forever cherish this time to grow closer with my husband and see our hopes and dreams of having a family come to fruition.

    Nags Head, North Carolina is the most inspiring place I have visited. I grew up spending time in the summers there and it is where I met my fiancé. This small town is also where I was proposed to this past September. It will forever have a piece of my soul and continue to inspire me to love and be loved.

    I recently visited the gorgeous island of Turks and Caicos and it is without of doubt, my happy place. Surrounded by natures beauty…this is how the island is described ” beautiful by nature” and it is so true. Surrounded by turquoise water, white sandy beaches, palm trees galore. An inspirational trip of a life time. I am envisioning wearing my new Trina Turks shoes around the island next time I go. Turk shoes in Turks & Caicos. Very fitting!

    Recently, I visited Savannah, Georgia for my sisters birthday. The great food, the history in the squares, the coastal setting, and the sorbet at Leopold’s Ice Cream inspired me of how I want to live when I graduate from college. A relaxed life by the beach!

    Key West, FL. The vibe just seeps into you and you can mellow out and take in all the natural beauty without all the distractions of big city living. I came home with a new sense of mindfulness and a sense of well being.

    I just had a 10 day vacation in Naples Florida.. Naples Beach is one of the prettiest beaches I Have ever been on. However , one afternoon we headed up to Bonita Sprngs Beach and stayed to see the sunset .Without a doubt that sunset was the most gorgeous sunset I have ever had the privilege of witnessing. The beach was crowded.. People even “toasted “this awesome spectacular sunset. It actually moved me to tears to witness God’s glory … I will never forget this awe inspiring moment in my life ….

    I was so inspired by the El Cedral church in Cozumel. Just walking through the village to climb the steps of the church- and imagining the priests conducting Mass and incorporating some of the beautiful Mayan architecture and customs to communicate with the native people. And remembering friends we made there! Hola, Mitos!

    There’s nothing more serene and tranquil than strolling the side streets of Old Town Key West early in the morning before the cruise crowds descend up on the tiny island. The light ocean breeze, tiny cigar maker’s cottages and ever-blooming flowers offer a unique blend of simplicity and quaintness found nowhere else in the country. It offers the perfect opportunity to reflect, decompress, and realign yourself to what’s important in life.

    The most inspiring place I have visited recently was Belize. I took a walk through their rainforest with a guide well versed in medicinal uses of all the plants we saw. I allowed a tarantula to crawl up my arm. I swung from a vine. And, being pulled by a guide, I navigated their caves via raft. It wasn’t the beauty and adventure though that inspired me; it was the guides who clearly loved not only their land but sharing their intimate relationship with the surroundings with visitors. It was the people who provided that inspiration for me!

    I’very been to many inspiring places and lately the most inspiring has been the coast of Virginia, where the Chesapeake Bay opens to the Atlantic. I am grateful for this place I can go daily to refresh, breathe deep, pray, reenergize, relax, and take in the beauty all around me. A great start to the day!

    I didn’t have to travel far from home to see the place that inspires me. Anywhere on 30a in Florida’s panhandle just makes me feel alive a inspired to be someone bigger than who I am. It has quickly become my favorite place!

    The beach…it always inspires me. The waves…the sand…the clouds…Creativity come to life.

    When I was pregnant with our oldest son we learned that he had a rare genetic disorder and would pass away at birth. It was a difficult and transformative period of time, and we decided to go to Las Vegas for a quick trip at the end of my maternity leave…well…our second son was born 8 months later.

    The most inspiring place I’ve visited recently oddly would be the Italian restaurant near my house. The rich and vibrant colors of the food were enough to write a book on and the smells and flavors of the food had me wanting to write a saga! It was an overall great experience and I felt in those moments that I understand how designers can create lines of clothing from one experience!

    Duluth, Minnesota is the most inspiring place I’ve visited recently. Lake Superior is so massive and beautiful. The water goes on as far as the eye can see. The people and attractions are fantastic.

    Banan on University of Hawaii Campus (Oahu). My nephew and some friends started serving local frozen banan soft serve with natural toppings (pineapple, quinoa, turmeric, lilokai, etc.) from a food truck. While they still have the truck they also have a store which they promote local artists, yoga and healthy lifestyle in general. They have a mural that looks very similar to the shoes in question.

    I recently visited the Saugatuck Dunes State Park. February in Michigan most years, is brutal. This year however it topped out at over 60 degrees one weekend recently. Hiking thru the forest to reach the summit of the dune and overlooking the partially frozen shelf pure awe inspiring. With faith of a clean break from winter weather and the melting of last season, I continue onward towards the next.

    The most inspiring place that I have gone to recently is My church Vortex. No matter how the day, week month or any amount of time that I have been away from church goes, everything is better and put into a greater perspective when I go to church, And the events of my week always tie into /Sunday’s message, now that is inspirational!!!!!
