In Feburary I decided that I was going to take a "ME" trip to Hawaii to visit my Mom. This is one of my fav spots on the island.....Mauna Kea beach!!! It was so wonderful to be a daughter and hang out with my Mom. We laughed ALOT!!!!

my inspiration for the day........

-Andrew Carnegie

ready or not......

my corner of the world......... just happens to be in the last frontier! Not exactly a place I dreamed I would live and raise my two children. I am a born and raised California girl who loves the warm sunshine.
I am still every bit of that Cali girl living in Americas 49th state of cold and darkness. Well.... its not always cold and dark!!
Here is my life in the 49th state which began almost 14 years ago when I met my best friend.....my husband!!
