Lest you think my blog is about to turn into All About Maui Inc., I promise you, it isn’t. Unless I move there of course. No plans as of yet, so I think you’re all safe. 🙂 Since coming back from our Maui vacation, it’s been a little rocky getting back on schedule. I think I finally […]

A real rainforest experience at Iao Valley – 3

read

When we booked our trip for Maui, I sorda knew what was ahead. I’ve been there a few times before, but after 15 years, and me running the show this round, I wasn’t sure how brave I’d be. In other words, how adventurous would I be capable of? Would I take in the (somewhat expensive) […]

Our amazing stay at Napili Point in Maui – 2

read

When I was first hunting for a place to stay in Maui, I called on Pastor Dwayne for his advice. Dwayne is well travelled, and at first, I just requested some suggestions to take to a travel agent.

I’m one of those people that love to travel. I love everything about it! Even waiting in airports. The food, the shopping, the structure itself, the anticipation, it’s all cool! Except for my heavy suitcases. I need to learn how to pack light. When I took in the Snap Conference, I knew I had to add […]

Braving the rental car in Salt Lake City

read

“Seriously. I’m gonna need a car… ” Before my Salt Lake City trip, I knew without a doubt that I’d be tagging on two extra days to take in a little of the surrounding area once the SNAP conference was over. But that meant one thing. I’d have to rent a scary rental car.   […]

Upon returning from the Snap conference, I was pleasantly surprised to come home with our lilac tree in full bloom! My fireplace mantel needed a shot of spring, so I got to work, creating a lilac filled junky toolbox planter. In order to get that amazing fragrance in the house pronto, a few blooms were […]
