Aloha Hawaii

I thought that I was doomed to spend the entire summer in Los Angeles after being laid-off from my job. I was certain that the only vacation we would be taking this summer would be a day at the beach. As things have turned out, we are going to Hawaii in June. I am absolutely thrilled to be going anywhere this year. With a little tax refund, one free ticket using our airline miles and a great Hawaii offer that popped up we couldn't resist.

While I normally write about how I am completely enamored with Europe, I am really getting into the Hawaiian mood. This will be our first trip to Hawaii. I have been reading books about Hawaii and listening to Hawaiian music to put me in the right frame of mind. I am ready to sit on the beach and drink a Mai Tai with a flower in my hair. Ah, I can hear the music and feel the ocean breeze.

We will be visiting Honolulu and Kauai. From all the research that I've done Hawaii looks gorgeous! I can't wait to experience the Hawaiian culture and cuisine. Hawaii is calling me...

Just came across your blog while randomly surfing. You will love Hawaii. If you get a chance, be sure to check out the windward side of Oahu if you get the chance. The Kailua and Lanikai beaches do not disappoint. Your shop is adorable.
