I woke up this morning to see a light dusting of snow on the neighbor's roofs and had the overwhelming desire for warmer days. Last summer I had the chance to visit Hawaii with my wonderful family. My mother had lived there for several years before she met my dad and we go back occasionally to visit. I was much younger the last time we visited and remember very little, so it was nice to go back now and have memories to last a lifetime. We were lucky enough to be there at the same time as several family friends and it was so nice to be in paradise with the people we love! I wish I could stay there forever, but for right now I am very thankful for the opportunity to visit every once in a while. I hope these pictures warm up your day wherever you are on this cold February day.
