Unbeatable combination

My iPod + Jack Johnson + Wasatch Boulevard + Running + Sunset + Perfect weather = Amazing!

1 year ago today

At this moment exactly 1 year ago, Courtney and I were 1 hour and 52 minutes from landing in Honolulu. I can't believe it has been a whole year. It was such a great experience! I remember feeling such anxiety before we were landed. I didn't know what to expect. We hadn't met Kali or her Sterling (The couple we stayed with.), didn't know where we'd be staying or know what their house was like, didn't know how to get around. Everything turned out great. It was so great to get away and relax. It's just what I needed. Ashley and Karli came out a couple weeks later and stayed the last 2 weeks. It was so much fun to be there with them!

We stayed on the North Shore of Oahu. We stayed just a few miles East of Laie in a city called Hau'ula. The house was right across the street from the ocean! It was incredible! I miss it and want to go back! I miss my super blond, long out of control hair and tan skin. I miss the humid air that smells like flowers and salt water. I keep thinking about things I can do to get me to move back, but for longer than a month. It's such a different lifestyle over there. There just seems to be less stress! I hope I can go back soon. I'm so jealous of Courtney... she leaves in a week and a half to go be an EFY counselor at BYU Hawaii. Have a blast Court!
