Grab Your Swimsuit & Sunscreen

When this post publishes, my boys and I will be high over the Pacific bound for the Big Island of Hawaii.

Hawaii is where I was born and raised and where my parents still live. I haven't been back for three years. This trip is long overdue. We lament that Dad couldn't make it, but someone's got to stay home and shovel the snow (thanks honey!).

Knowing I would miss my husband and my dear readers terribly, I have decided to you bring you along—virtually at least.

For the next three weeks I will blog from Hawaii. I plan to allow the activities of my days to inspire my posts and will guarantee you a peek at the Hawaii I love. The people, the culture, the food, the sights.

So put on that swimsuit, slather on some sunscreen, slip into your flip-flops (aka "slippas") and let's go!
