#LITOkinawaFaves Week 1 Highlights

In case you haven’t heard or read my previous post, #LITOkinawaFaves is a 14 day photo challenge that I’ve created and am currently hosting over on Instagram (Follow me! It’s not too late to join). The purpose of the challenge is to highlight your favorite things about Okinawa. I’ve been so pleasantly surprised (and relieved) by how many of you have joined and shared your faves!

In the first week there have been over 200 amazing and creative pictures shared! The ones above are my entries for each of last weeks prompts and I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorites!
