Welcome to The Kai Life!
I’m Jenny – a beach-obsessed wife & mama, travel writer, designer, DJ and content creator based out of Denver, Colorado (while I may be far from the sandy shores, my love for coastal destinations knows no bounds!). My soul feels home when I’m at the beach. I love sharing the magic that I find near the waves with others who love the salt water life too.
My travels are not just fueled by a desire for all the coastal views and the smell of the salty air; they are also a quest for wellness and rejuvenation balanced with fun indulgences. As I weave my way through paradise, I strive to embrace practices like yin yoga and healthy eating (along with the occasional scoop of “nice” cream!) that nourish the mind, body, and soul. I love to incorporate the self care I find at the shore into my life back at home.
When I’m blessed enough to be by the waves, I always do a beach clean up walk – and I hope to inspire others to do the same.
At the heart of my journeys are my son, Kai and husband, Walt – a constant source of inspiration and the best travel buddies a gal could ask for! Kai, meaning ‘ocean’ in Hawaiian, perfectly brings to life our deep love for Hawaii, from its captivating landscapes, stunning beaches, crystal clear waters and enchanting tapestry of vibrant culture. Walt and I were first introduced to beautiful Hawaii by his late mother, Holly, who loved it with an unwavering passion. The natural beauty of the islands has left a permanent mark on my heart, encouraging me to share its allure through my writing and images. I couldn’t think of a better way to honor my son and his connection to the ocean than naming this space The Kai Life.
In addition to being a beach travel enthusiast, I’m also known by my alter ego, J|Adore. As a professional DJ since 2009 who has had the honor of directly opening for hundreds of electronic music artists and playing music for tens of thousands of humans, I find immense joy in blending beats and rhythms, setting the stage for unforgettable experiences in paradise. DJing in uplifted tropical destinations allows me to combine my love for music with my passion for travel, creating a vibrant atmosphere that encourages others to come together to dance and celebrate life.
Through The Kai Life blog, I hope to inspire and empower you to prioritize your well-being while embarking on your own sandy adventures. I urge you to dip your toes in the sand, let the ocean’s rhythm guide you, and discover the transformative power of the coastal life. Join me as I capture the essence of paradise, share compelling stories, and provide (hopefully fun!) tips and guides along the way to help you create unforgettable beachside experiences as well!
So, let’s embark on this journey together and embrace the magic of beach travel. Get ready to immerse yourself in the sights, sounds, and wonders of our world’s most beautiful beaches. I’ll meet you where tranquility, fun, and sunsets collide in perfect harmony.
The Kai Life awaits!
BEACH WRITER + PHOTOGRAPHER

YIN YOGA + SELF CARE
Over the past 10 years, I’ve taught yoga and the benefits of strong consistent self care. I love to guide my students through transformative practices. It’s extra magical to unroll our mats next to the rhythmic sounds of the waves, and to witness the impact that the union of breath, movement, and the ocean’s energy can have. The beach is my absolute favorite place for yoga. I currently teach pop up classes and retreats focused on yin yoga while I travel, with the occasional local pop-up in Colorado.
