Hau`oli Lā Hānau

Oh I can hardly wait! I finally get to do one of the things I have wanted to do since my first visit to the Hawaiian islands. I will be spending my birthday on the beaches of the north shore of Oʻahu. The waves will be big and the whales will be there as well. Not sure if I will make it out for some whale watching but I do hope to catch some surfers riding the waves (from the safety of the sandy beach that is). I can't wait!

Friends For Life

Most of us have at least one friend from our past that we have a very special place in our heart for. Some of them we are still in touch with and still have that bond with while others are no longer in our lives for one reason or another. I am very fortunate to have a few of those friends and most are still in my life. Many of them no longer live in the area and I don't get to see them very often. There is one who I have very few childhood memories where she was NOT a part of. And I got to see her today.
We have both been through life changes and it still feels as though we were never apart from each other. I am so lucky to still call her friend and consider her husband a friend as well and love her children to pieces even though we see each other MAYBE once a year. I hope that when we are gray haired old ladies we can still call each other friend. I already consider myself lucky to have a friend like her in my life.

Oh, how Pinteresting!

I have decided it's time to bring my blog back to life. I will kick it off with

I spend entirely too much time on Pinterest and it will be hard to pick some of my favorites but I will give it a shot. So here we go.

My motto.

And this would be what my dog thinks of my motto.

Yep, that's what I wish.

Laugh every time I think this.

Some days these words get me through.
