I'm a twenty-something Southern-born-and-bred gal that married the love of my life back in 2010.  Now that he's retired from the military and we've moved back to the mainland from beautiful Honolulu, Hawaii, we're on a new adventure in Virginia Beach, which includes starting a family!

  1. Hi there! I just found your blog tonight and I've read through so many of your posts. I've actually added a ton to my list of things I want to do here in Oahu. My husband and I have only been on the island for about 2 months, so it's nice to read about your adventures and all of the beautiful places you've explored. :-)

    1. Thank you Lynda!! Your comment is too sweet =) I'm glad you've been enjoying the blog! If you have any questions or would even just like to talk, feel free to send me a message!

  2. Hi. This is certainly inspiring for wanna be visitors. In this time of Co-Vid, just keep saving up your money for possibly the greatest adventure ever. Word of warning, once you get Hawaii in your blood, it'll be a much desired commodity after that. My wife and I are in our 60s and can't wait to go back. This time we know what to do, avoid the tourist traps, and seek and discover a more transcendent holiday experience. Thanks for having such a great website and keep the peace, stay healthy !

    1. I appreciate your comment, dekrue! Hawaii really was the greatest adventure of my life so far (minus my kids, of course lol) and I'm hoping we'll get back there one day too. Take care, stay safe, and happy holidays to you and your wife!
