Every time I leave Hawaii I cant help but shed a tear. I feel so blessed to call her home for the larger part of the year. It really is a special place, I would even venture to call it a magical one. The older I get though the more I find it true that home is infact much more then a place to put your stuff.
Here are a few of my favorite things that make Hawaii home...
my wonderful roomate family
While Miles was here we thought it would be fun to do the undergroud tour of Seattle, which is the old city before it burned down. My grandma warned me it was spooky, its a shame I didnt heed her council. Imagine wandering around in someones half finished basement with some black and whites on the walls. Sorry to be so cynical! But at the expense of being closterphobic, I did learn a few things.
Im smiling here because its the end!
My grandparents took me out to this place Arnies when I got back. They always know of all these awesome places to go. They are always very classy. They always have a way of making you feel special.
I love my grandparents! They also make me rest assure that there is beauty to be found in all stages in life. When I hear them talk about when they were "growing up" it makes me think of my numbered days, and if Im making memories worth sharing someday.
The Mahi Mahi seemed like an old friend to me from Hawaii. It seems you cant just transition from one place to another cold turkey, you have to ease into it! So ofcourse my taste buds told me to order this!
One great thing about being home is our band Platinum Moon is back together. One day my good friend Emily and I in highschool thought it would be funny to get stage names, I was named Shiela Platinum and she was Red Moon .
Red & Shiela in highschool.
Supposedly everyone’s happy on the first day of summer. I concurr and so did Emily, who said the serotonin levels were through the roof!
Emily always says things that aren’t meant to be funny but are always hilarious. For example, she said in Europe her dad was washing his underwear in the sink because he only brings two pairs on account of he hates to pack. (I thought that part was funny) She said her families like, “dad we need to use that sink!” Anyway the point of her story was her family was being loud in Europe and the hotel man came to their room and Emily’s dad came out of the bathroom in his underwear at the same time saying “whose making all that noise?!”
Anyway Platinum Moon is hoping to hold auditions for a drummer, feel free to visit our site (may be a bit misleading, someone we "toured with" emailed us and didn't remember our 23 million copy success)
