Almost two years ago I stood on this same deck overlooking these same mountains, working at a job I felt was draining me both physically and mentally. I sat down alone looking at that view, breathing in the crisp clean air that smelt like pine cones and morning dew and tried to finally listen to my inner self and what it was I wanted out of life, what I wanted to do. I remember my coffee Turing cold from sitting there for so long, with only the occasional view of my partner out on his little boat as he went around the dam fishing.
It was in this gorgeous setting, in this completely centered moment in my life that I decided to create and build Yoshi the brand.
Going back to this place over the weekend, taking this photo. Knowing it’s where it all began, sitting in that same spot with Yoshi being where it is now,having grown so greatly and unexpectedly is honestly the most humbling experience, I can’t thank each and everyone of you enough. Without you there is no Yoshi.
I took this photo as I breathed in that same scent but as completely different,happier person.
In the next moment my friend and her little boy (my favorite little human) came down to the water and we jumped around on this deck to the sounds of baby giggles.
