Paradise Lost or Paradise Found?

They say Hawaii is Paradise. Could be. Maybe. But for how long? 1 year? 2 years? Nope. 3.and.one.half.years. People, it’s happening. (Mother screaming loudly) “IT’S HAPPENING!” They’re moving home! H-O-M-E! As in the same city and state where we live. Yeh, I’m a little excited. We just found out two nights ago … the night before […]

Paradise: a place in which existence is positive, harmonious and timeless. It’s not lost, nor found…it simply is my life! 🙂

Love you and can’t wait to see you!!!

Hawaii: Marathon Madness

In the last post I told you that my husband surprised the kids with his visit to Hawaii. Well, part of the reason for doing that was so that he could join us in watching our daughter run her second marathon – 26.2 miles — on December 12.   We are extremely proud and impressed with […]

Yea, what to say about this insanity! Having a bay is a marathon in itself! You go Megs! You are amazing 🙂

"It Never Hurts to Ask" Family Portraits

Sometimes you meet the nicest people at the most unusual places.  Take for example the Hilton Hawaiian Village playground.  I was photographing my daughter’s family and we stopped for a few minutes to let Sydney play on the slide when a lady came up and asked if I was a photographer and could possibly photograph her family.  […]

Portraits of My Hawaiian Kids

My mom and I spent 14 wonderful days in sunny Honolulu the first two weeks of December with my daughter, Megan, son-in-law Robby, and granddaughter, Sydney.  A week into our trip Grampa showed up at their door surprising everyone but me (since I was in the loop from the get-go) so it was fun to see the kids […]

Aloha from Hawaii!

The cold and snow hit Boise, so my mom and I headed for warmer weather — Honolulu, Hawaii!  Okay, we had it planned before the snow fell, but it sure was good timing on our part!  We’re here visiting my daughter, son-in-law, and adorably sweet, funny, smart, cute granddaughter, Sydney, of 11 months.  She met us at […]

Love it! So jealous, I wish I could escape to Hawaii 😉 And your mom! Wow, she looks great.

I’d be jealous too if I was home in the cold and snow. It’s beautiful here and Mom and I are having so much fun with Sydney. What a silly sweet girl she is. I gave your compliment to my mom — thank you.
