Who am I?
A woman who is still trying to get it all figured out, but you can call me Nikki. Life has been full of ups and downs and side roads I didn’t expect to take, but some things stay the same…Pineapples make me happy and palm trees swaying in the salty, ocean air ease my restless soul.
What is Pineapples and Palms?
This is a blog filled with self love and healing while traveling and finding courage to have new experiences. I’ve spent 5 years trying to heal the trauma of domestic abuse. In that time I’ve felt every emotion under the sun. I even attempted a blog soon after exiting the abusive situation and found that I just wasn’t ready to share that vulnerability with the world. It takes time to get to know yourself again and everyone processes differently. For me, that was therapy, surrounding myself with a small tribe of unbelievably supportive people AND travel! The beach trips I’ve made in the last 5 years have eased my restless mind and soul. It was exactly what I needed. That salty air has always been my favorite remedy.
Am I perfect, no. There’s always room for growth. But am I ready for happiness and sharing a journey of adventure while healing, abso freaking lutely!!!
