    Photo Challenge: I’d Rather Be…

    Yesterday I was supposed to have a delayed opening due to the snow, but it turned out to be a day off. Not one to usually complain about a day off from work (except for now I keep losing days of summer break), I was exceptionally bored yesterday. I’m done with winter now and I really need spring! So for last week’s photo challenge from The Daily Post, “I’d Rather Be…” it was a no-brainer. I’d rather be in Hawaii, my favorite place on earth! I’ve shared this photo on here once or twice before, but I don’t think I’ve ever used it for a photo challenge. Regardless, it’s just…

    Photo Challenge: Future

    My original idea for this week’s photo challenge, “Future“, was to use a picture of my seniors throwing their caps into the air at graduation last year. It would be the perfect embodiment of future because the youth, after all, are the future even if it is a little scary to think about at times!

For the past three years I’ve been either reading the names for diplomas, hosting the graduation, or both. Naturally, I don’t bring my phone with me on stage so the photos are all from…

You’re surrounded by beautiful sites whether it’s the mountains, ocean, waterfalls or even volcanoes. Even when you’re not expecting to see something you find yourself surprised. In my last post I showed my outfit of the day when I went to Kailua-Kona. On that same day, we decided to drive a little further south along the coast just to explore. After a few miles we started to see signs for Kealakekua Bay and decided to follow them. It was a few miles of very twisty, curvy roads down…

    Aloha

    Hello from Hawaii! I’m in Hawaii on vacation, so for the next few posts you’ll be seeing some ootd, travel, and food related posts from my trip. This is my 3rd time here, but only my 2nd time on the big island. The first time I came was right after I graduated high school, 10 years ago (I know I’m dating myself here). I like to travel in comfortable clothes especially on a plane when you’re in such a restricted space for a long period of time. The flight to Honolulu is 10 hours from where I live.
