5QF Hawaii Edition

10 Jun

Aloha,  dear friends! I haven’t posted in a week? Really? That flew by for me…probably because I’m having the time of my life at Big Island, Hawai’i! I wanted to be sure and participate in Mama M’s Five Question Friday, as usual, so here’s my Big Island Vacation hello! We’ll be back to the regularly scheduled posts next week. Promise!

Did you check out that jewelry I’m wearing? I meant to tell you all about it in the video, but the onlookers made me nervous. Ha! Anyway, Captain J has made it a tradition to buy me jewelry from every place we visit (What a great tradition, huh?!) He tries to find pieces that are characteristic of the place we are visiting…for instance, in New Zealand he got me Jade. Anywho, my newest addition to my jewelry box neck and ears are made of :

Olivine– A natural mineral that only forms in lava. It is what makes the Big Island of Hawaii’s green sand beach.


Weleweka AKA Velvet Seed– is a rare tree found primarily on the Big Island and Maui. Approximately fifty are known to exist.

Cool, huh? Mahalo for reading 🙂

    I am so incredibly jealous…we went to Maui for our honeymoon, and I soooooo want to go back!

    Enjoy your time there!

    Too bad your father-in-law couldn’t go with you on your honeymoon!

    I think it’s hysterical that people were watching you. Creepasauruses!

    Love the vlog – you have such a sweet voice. Mine sounds like I squawk or something. Ugh.

    Love the jewelry and love the tradition.
