A Tsunami of Blessings

What I learned yesterday, as we braced for and thankfully escaped a tsunami... ♥ I learned that my husband is our super hero - short of ripping off his shirt and showing an "S" on his chest, he jumped to action at 2 a.m. in the morning, got us all of our supplies and made a plan for us to evacuate. ♥ I learned that my children are so very brave...even with sirens ringing that resembled that of a bomb warning, they looked to us for guidance and trusted that we would keep them safe.  And we … [Read more...]

My hubby with my son over five years ago...he'd take him for walks and to check the surf almost every day On our first trip to Hawaii when Cameron was 3 months old (we went to Hawaii three times in 12 months that year, we were hooked!) In Encinitas, it'll always be my second home (I really miss it!) And with the little wahine in the almighty Ergo … [Read more...]
