I'm baaaack! (and sharing some Aloha!)

Aloha friends! I just wanted to pop in and say hello, our plane arrived last Tuesday morning but we're still so jet lag and out of our time zone. Who knew that 6 hours difference would affect us so much? Not to mention that the airline seats are still not comfortable to sleep in (unless you're in first class, which we so were not - lol!). We just loved our vacation and visiting with family and friends. One week was spent on Oahu for my sister's wedding at Hale Koa, the next week on Kauai where I was born. It was so wonderful showing off my island to the kiddos, they loved every minute of it!
I won't lie - I cried like a baby when it was time to leave, it was so hard leaving my family and my beautiful home. If there is one thing you should do in your lifetime, it's to visit Kauai. There is no place in the world like it, it truly is a piece of heaven on Earth!
I will be posting later today for TPE but wanted to share a few pictures of our trip home. I will also be doing a giveaway to celebrate summer later this week (this made me a bit happier when I decided to do this, Hawaii people are SO generous so I thought I'd extend the aloha!). For now here are some pictures of our trip:

Have a wonderful Monday morning everyone! :)
