Christmas in Hawaii

2014 was a very trying year for me. Despite the hardships this year, I am so incredibly blessed that I was fortunate enough to spend the last ten days of the year with my beautiful family in Hawaii.

My parents and I met in Honolulu to spend Christmas with my brother who now attends UH Manoa.  I was so blown away by how over due this family vacation was. Since my parents have joined the ’empty nesters’ club, we haven’t done much family bonding. We laughed until our stomachs hurt, spoiled each other with thoughtful gifts, and made memories that will last a lifetime.

Where did you spend the holidays?

Weekends Are For Traveling

When life gets stressful and a little too pushy, take a mini-vacay.

The month of November challenges me to stay mindful of everything I am thankful for.  This week I am thankful for the constant beauty surrounding me, my amazing friends and family, and God’s grace.

What are you thankful for?
