I am Arbine.

I am Filipino-American.

I am a former Army brat.

I went to public school.

I currently call Hawaii home.

I have a love affair with food. Especially if it includes sprinkles or bacon.

I am a geek.

I write.

I will jump at any chance to travel.

I am a wife.

I am a mother.

I wear my heart on my sleeve.

It took me a long time to feel comfortable in my own skin, with what I look like, and who I am.

I admit, there are days when I’m really hard on myself.

But the days of pure joy, the days of radical self love, the shiny days, greatly outnumber the bad.

And I’m so grateful for that.
