Gone But Back Again

Friday, August 12, 2016


Hello friends.  I've been gone for a while but .....


I'm Back!!


I went on vacation with my family to Hawaii!!





If you follow me on Instagram, then you have already seen me post this photo there.  I just love those palm trees and this is my new wallpaper on my phone.

We returned from our trip early yesterday morning and I'm now suffering from jet lag.  Hawaii is 6 hours behind us.  I will be back to feeling normal by next week.

I had a great time away on vacation visiting Honolulu and Maui.  The weather is beautiful around 80 to 85 degrees everyday with no humidity and soft breezes.  Everyday we had small rain showers that lasted for a few minutes.  The beaches are spectacular, and the water is warm, and I loved how it had such pretty shades of blue.  

I love traveling and visiting different parts of the world and I'm so happy that I was able to visit Hawaii since it was on my bucket list.  This was my first time visiting there and I hope to visit it again someday.  

I missed you all and I will be back to blogging and hosting on Monday with Jess our Cooking and Crafting with J & J Link Up.


Thanks everyone and enjoy!

Julie

  17. What a wonderful vacation you must have had Julie! I'm so glad you were able to visit a place that you've had on your bucket list too. I don't have a list so that I'm not disappointed if I never get to certain places ;) Have a great week, and I hope you're over your jet lag.
