New Year Wishes From Hawaii


Happy 2011! 
As we say in Hawaii, "Hauoli Makahiki Hou"!


  1. Happy New Year to you as well! Love the pic, is that Waikiki? Looks beautiful:)

  2. Happy New Year Angela!
    Yes it is Waikiki. That mountain in the distance is the famous landmark known as Diamond Head. Diamond Head is actually an inactive volcano crater. It's quite a busy beach, Waikiki. I prefer the beautiful and quiet beaches on Kauai more. I'll try to get photos of Kauai when I travel there this year.
    Again, Happy 2011! xoxo

  3. We hiked Diamond Head last April. I couldn't get over the people that were running up it for their workout. I have never been to Kauai, hopefully next trip. I wanted to let you know I gave you the stylish blogger award over at 365 small details:) Click over to see it and the instructions to pass it along. I have really enjoyed your blog and look forward to reading more.

  4. Hey, I lost track of you after the BYW class ended. So glad 365smalldetails brought me back to find you again. Splendid. :) Love the photos. Happy New Year.

  5. Oh how I wish I was in Hawaii right now... it's cold up here in MN!! ;-)

    Happy Wednesday Darling! xo

  6. Angela, geez thanks so much for the mention on your blog! Your kind words are so wonderful to me! I can't believe you were in Hawaii last April! You hiked Diamond Head! Go Girl!

  7. Kalani, Hi!! Glad that Angela reconnected us!

  8. Aloha Jen!
    You wish you were in Hawaii and I wish I was in your town experiencing the cold. I love the cold. I have lots of clothes to layer with, unfortunately Hawaii ain't the place to wear any of it.
    Hope you get to experience some sun, sand, and surf sometime this year.

  9. Hauoli Makahiki Hou, dear Merissa!! ^____^

    oh! i´m learning hawaiian online! (shame there isn´t a proper place for it, there are some blogs and dictionaries, but very poor...:( )


  10. Aloha Stella!
    Maika'i no (^•^)
    I can't believe you're learning Hawaiian! Cool! I studied the language in school for 5 years. However, I never kept up with it. I need some brushing up to do! And you're right about not having too many Hawaiian language resources out there. There aren't enough. But if you got any questions, my friend holds a degree in the language. Have a good weekend! xo


So happy you paid me a visit. Mahalo!
Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.

Hi there! Photography and art featured on this blog, unless where noted, came from my camera and were made or styled by my hands. You may not use my photos for profit or on commercial websites, but we might be able to work something out with a dozen chocolate macarons, and a juicy deal. Do not remove my watermarks or copyright markings from my photos (please see previous sentence). I won't bite, well unless you infringe on my copyright. But really, send me an email, I'm pretty nice. The snail mail on my blog includes my mail or the work from other artists and pen friends. I do my best to give everyone credit. But, in the case where I have missed the proper credit please contact me to address it. If you would like to re-blog or pin any of my original works please be the awesome person that you are and give me a shout out a.k.a. proper credit, and link it back here. Speaking of links, I do on occasion link out to other sites, however I am not responsible for the content you find on those sites. Sometimes clicking on a link I’ve provided may be a link to a site that will give me a small commission if you buy something from them. Which means that I might get paid (hopefully not in gum) if you click on that link, whoo-hoo. Reason why I’m telling you is because I want to be honest with you and frankly, because it’s illegal not to.
