Since I can't Be Here...



That's Waikiki Beach where I just spent 10 AMAZING days!




I'll just have to suffer here...






The place that I call home.




I got to thinking...


Y'all smell the smoke don't you? No worries remember I have 2 fire extinguishers now...


I live in such a beautiful place and I don't take advantage of it. Seriously...People come to where I live to vacation throughout the year. It's paradise. We have THE WHITEST SAND in the world, palm trees, blue skies...Hell they even make Mai Tais here...


So as much as I can't stop thinking about my new found love of Oahu...


I've decided to start appreciating where I wake up everyday.


When you can't be on VACATION...Enjoy a DAYCATION (Molly coined the term).


I kicked my daycation off yesterday by meeting Stereos & Souffles at the spa for a pedi...




Then we went here


For lunch and a cocktail. Our daycation continued by going to visit a bestie at her bar where Molly joined us (unexpectedly...Great Minds...).

So each weekend from here on I'll be on daycation. Enjoying life and all the beauty that surrounds me. And as much as I miss Oahu...


I heart where I live!

That sounds like such a great attitude. Now that I live in Maryland, I realize how much I took Florida for granted. I miss home!

Stopping by from SITS.

Great attitude! I live two blocks from the beach in VA, and feel the same way. (Matter of fact, I went yesterday and got FRIED - lol!)

Stopping by from SITs. Have a great day. :)

Aloha! I moved to Fl from Oahu in 7th grade and still miss it so very much. But, like you, I also love Florida and know that I am blessed. Great finding your blog! Happy weekend!!

Funny, Florida IS where I headed for vacation this year. I lived in the Keys for a short period. I loved it, but I sure do hate the humidity!
