Need to warm up - Hawaii memories

I have many things that I do in my life: wife of 14.5 years, mother of two, engineer, avid reader, photographer, scrapbooker to name the top jobs. As I sit in my new house, I am wanting to show more of those things on my blog.

No, I don't plan on starting to share stories of my husband and children. I am not completely comfortable with putting a lot of information on my kids out on the web and I'm not the gushy type so can't talk much about my great hubby.

I want to start incorporating more of my photography and scrapbooking into the blog. I am thinking this will inspire me to do more of both, which only will make me happier overall. The problem is I'm not quite sure how best to bring them in. So I'm just going to try some things over the next week or so and see how they go. If anyone has any ideas or wants me to talk about something specific, I'd love to hear them.

For today, I am feeling very cold. The sun is out but it's very cold outside. And it's been almost a year since hubby and I went to Hawaii for the first time (not that we've been back but we will be going back at some point). So I was looking through my pictures from our week there and want to share some of my favorites.

This picture of the black sand beach just calms me

The best fun! I highly recommend ATVing to all! That's me in the top picture. We were on the island of Kauai - it's beautiful!

Whew! I'm glad you wrote about photography and Hawaii instead of engineering.

Michele said...

LOL Kathy!!!! I am sure I could find something interesting to talk about related to engineering. Wanna talk programming?

Julie said...

Yeah, its way too cold out today. I wish I were in Hawaii too!!

I've seen some bloggers start to do a Wordless Wednesday post where they post pictures they've taken. I'm enjoying these on other blogs.

Can't wait to see your scrapbooking. I have started to put my scrap pages on my blog as well as my photos, just to add more than just book reviews. I know what you mean about putting too much info about your family and kids on there - I try to avoid this as well.

Great Idea Michele. I'll look forward to your photos and scrapbooking. I'm so envious, Hawaii is my dream vacation. It looks so beautiful and warm and sunny! Warms the spirits living in Ohio..I am a fellow ohioan and we are further north and get much more snow and cold!!
