I'm back!

When I first moved to Hawaii, I never thought this ole Southern girl would notice the changing "seasons" of a tropical island...but after living here for two years I can definitely detect the difference! With the perpetually rainy winter season behind us, the Hawaii sun is bearing down full throttle...and we're loving it.

Isabella and I have been lolling about, going back and forth between pool and sunshine...soaking it up. If we're not going to the beach, we spend our afternoons in the back yard splashing about in her pool or running through the sprinklers. We always top things off with a popsicle and then we sleep. I noticed today that I have developed a fresh batch of freckles dusting every part of my body that has been exposed to the sun...I'm kind of digging this look.

I love these pictures. Isn't this what summer is all about? Playing in the yard in your bathing suit, popsicle stains on your mouth, and mosquito bites in every nook and, I love summer.

I have some exciting news to share with you...well, exciting for me at least...

Oh how I wish we had the sunshine here in marine layered Southern California. We do tend to have sunshine for July-April, but May and June are tough. Anyway, glad you are back and enjoying the sunshine on your freckled shoulders!

Wow, I didn't know tropical islands had skeeters. I didn't notice them when I was there and trust me I am bait for those things. I thought you were lucky and dodged that bullet.
