I took these photos at the Orchid Garden in Hawaii on the Big Island. It was so lovely and everyone was so happy. It's finally warm here today which, I imagine is lifting everyone's spirits. Have a great day!
We had another winter storm here yesterday. This is just nuts to me. May is in 8 days! Since the White Witch won't move somewhere else, I decided to share these pictures I took back in Feb. There was an installation here called, The Ice Castles. I thought it was pretty neat. Especially the day I went and the sky was so grey you couldn't tell where the ground met the clouds.
As the temperature is slowly inching up(it might be in the 50's next week!) I am looking for hosting ideas. I love to have potlucks, intimate dinners, cookouts and cocktail hours. Birthday parties are also a very big deal around here. I've been trying to recreate some of the lovely drinks I had in Hawaii. A Lava Flow, Blue Hawaiian, Orchid Lemon Drop.
I was going to post some pictures of new pieces I've made for my shop but instead I'm going with flowers and waterfalls from the Big Island, Hawaii. This was a stop on our way to Hilo. Akaka Falls a state park, completely breathtaking. It's still dreary here in Minnestoa so looking at happy pictures helps a lot.
So, I'm looking for a better phrase than "Bucket List." Something doesn't work for me about that one. However, I am very in favor of the sentiment and would like to share something I got off my list in Hawaii and that was to go Whale Watching. It was so breathtaking and when I saw the baby Humpback whale it made me cry it was so wonderful. I truly hope everyone can do this and I hope I can do it again in another part of the world. Have a GREAT DAY!
It is cold and snowy here in Minnesota. We just had a big storm and it's April. It's pretty out and normally I don't mind it but, I am ready for sunshine. I am trying to remind myself that it was only a month ago that I was in Hawaii. Here is one of the amazing places I went to in the Aloha state. The Black Sands Beach on the Big Island. Sea turtles, sunshine and soft, warm sand...
