This is Japanese style of crocheting. Leilani loves!


Hooping:




Leilani started hooping in late in 2009 after being inspired by a hooper from Southern California visiting Seattle. Leilani took a few private lessons and was on her way! She's attended some local hooping events and even a hoop weekend gathering in Bend OR!
Leilani is pictured above hoop dancing and performing at Kent Cornucopia Days. Hooping is one of her favorite forms of exercise. Hooping is a great form of cardio, core strengthening, and strength training!  To see videos of Leilani hooping check our her youtube channel here and to learn more about hooping click here . The style of hooping Leilani does is based on this hooping history and origin.

Leilani does not to Native American Hoop Dancing but to learn more about it click here and here

Bellydancing:

Did you know that the term "Belly Dancing" and "Oriental Dance" may not be the best terms to describe dancing inspired by and from the Arab world, Middle East, North Africa, Western and Central Asia, and the Mediterranean? For some, both terms are considered to perpetuate some stereotypes about the dance form. For example: it is not always done with the mid riff exposed, it is not only performed by women, and it is not the art of seduction.  Leilani's pictured below prior to performing at Med Fest. To find out more click here.

Outdoor Adventures:

Leilani enjoys a variety of other activities like a bit of traveling, flat water kayaking, day hikes, and birding. In the picture below, Leilani is kayaking in the Mercer Slough.


 

 

Pets:

Leilani is a huge animal lover and shares her home with her beloved animal companions! She is passionate about animal rights and the quality of their lives.



Our newest family member, Willow, is a street dog rescue from Tijuana, Mexico. She's a 40+ lb. mixed coated xoloitzcuintli & chihuahua puppy born approximately 3-14-2015. We adopted her August 21, 2015 from a big animal event called Hounds on the Hill in Puyallup, WA. We are committed to good manners and positive dog training would love it if clients helped Willow learn them. She has some nervousness around meeting new people and is frightened of loud noises and children. She could be considered a somewhat shy or anxious dog with a mild case of DINOS - a dog in need of space (more info video). Here's a great post about meeting new dogs. Thanks for your help and patience as we continue to train our beloved dog!  Here she is pictured in her Halloween costume as a Jedi Knight! We are members at House of Ruff and highly recommend their private indoor dog park and doggy daycare services.

 

Our Winged Friends:

Leilani was given a rescued green rumped parrotlet found outside in the cold January 29th, 2007 huddled by a laundry room door. He was in rough shape and needed emergency avian vet care for a few days. We are so delighted he found his forever home with us. Digit is our office and home singer; he loves opera arias. While interested in seeing clients come and go, he likes it best if they don't get close to his cage. Please give his cage a couple feet of personal space. Thank you!

Bella, her now deceased but beloved chocolate lab,  Sept. 25, 1997-June 27, 2010, pictured above Oct. 2007, was sleeping with a neighbor cat, Rufus.




We love our aquarium!   They bring us relaxing entertainment and many joyful moments.  Our aquatic family includes a colony of rescued feeder guppies.

Orchids:
Leilani has been an orchid admirer for some time and pictured below is one of her windowsill orchids.

 This photo is of one of Leilani's orchids blooming a third time. This lovely phalenopsis is a relatively easy orchid to care for. Leilani is delighted to learn more about her orchids needs and help them flourish. She is a member of the NW Orchid Society. Leilani took the pictures below at the Mt. Vernon Orchid Show in Feb. 2007.
