We officially sold our house today and are moving to Maui! I want to give a big shout out to Chris Hancock & Joe Brown over at Homerun Realty, LLC for helping us sell our home and always going above and beyond for us. Chris kept us up to date on everything and made sure we knew what was going on every step of the way.  As a business owner myself, I know the importance of having a plan behind getting results and have to give them major credit; Joe and the team have exactly that. A solid plan behind getting homes shown to the right people, and getting them sold! They make the entire process easy for all people involved!...

15 more days till we close on our house here. 25 more days till summer break starts. 26 more days till my birthday. 28 more days till we fly to MAUI! I have a feeling the month of May is going to be one for the books. Things are FINALLY here, and I could not be more excited to get closer to flying over to Hawaii and start our adventure there. I'm so ready to say goodbye to this empty house we've been living in the last few weeks and say hello to our new life in Maui.

Discovery Cove is one of Floridas best-hidden treasures. It's tucked between all the huge theme parks, and many people who live in Florida don't know about it. If you're local, or visiting add this to your list of things to do! It's a MUST! Discovery Cove is one of our absolute favorite place to visit. It's the perfect place to explore, relax, and enjoy as a family. So after visiting most of the parks here in Florida, we can now say that Discovery Park is in the #1 spot of places to visit in Florida! As a mom myself I'm constantly trying to find fun things to do for my family, and I had remembered Discovery Cove. After living in Florida,...

We officially booked our flights to MAUI and I could not be more excited. Booking those tickets makes it feel so real. What am I looking forward to most? Showing my husband and two kids how beautiful Hawaii is, adventuring with them more, seeing my husbands face when he get's off that plane and get's to see Hawaii for the first time. Seeing sea turtles, whales and monk seals. Getting lost together, and finding our favorite spots. Learning more about their culture and connecting with those who already call this place home. Location scouting and house hunting. Gosh, there's so much I can't wait to do and so lucky to do it with my adventurous husband and two wild kiddos. 46...

I remember when my sister decided to take her son out of public school and start homeschooling. I blaming the the school district they were in as the reason for making such a big change. This wasn't going to happen with me because we lived in a school district with terrific schools. I remember feeling excited about my daughter going to school every day in 1st and 2nd grade. Everything was fine then. I remember my sister saying; just wait until the test start. And I thought to myself, yea, she takes tests now and is going wonderfully! This month is a testing time for all third graders in Florida. They are required to take something called a FSA (Florida Standardized...

So much has happened since my last blog post. There have been a few road bumps along the way. Our plan was to close on the house and fly over during spring break. Well, that came and went and we had to start the process of finding a buyer for our house (twice). Everything was set in place, or so we had hoped, and then on the day of closing on our house, we find out that the buyers had to cancel the contract and back out due to a not being able to get the load. (they had been pre-approved and ended up finding something that caused the loan company to deny the process any further). The DAY of...

She asked me if I was scared about leaving everything behind and moving to an island in the middle of the Pacific. I laughed and said I wasn't. But somehow that question has become a little louder the last few weeks and got me thinking. I would formally like to change my answer to; Yes, it's scary. We are selling our house, and giving away everything we have collected over the last ten years, we are moving to a tiny little island in the middle of the Pacific, a place only I have been to. Wait no, the island we decided to go to I actually have never stepped foot on. My husband and our two kids have NEVER been...

"i just made it a lot harder on myself" Those thoughts have been passing by a lot lately. You see, uprooting your entire family, moving your business to a new place and starting over is exciting, but it's also hard. I know once we get there, I'll look back and think how much it was worth it, but right now I can't help but think that one quote. You know the one that says something about choosing the path less traveled? I feel like that the path I'm on right now, and as much as I want to pretend like I know what I'm doing on it, I'm really just putting one foot in front of the other and heading...

Picking an Island in Hawaii is hard. Each island has it's own unique beauty to it. Their all so incredibly different from each other. I'm excited to visit each of them, but happy that I finally figured out which one I'd like to call home.   The last few months kind of went like this:  Oahu is so pretty, but we should move to the Big Island because it's so nice and has so much space. Yes, def moving to the Big Island. Whoa, did you see Kauai?! That's a dream! Ok nevermind the big island, let's move to Kauai. We will live in a tiny little beach shack, but it will be on Kauai. Did you see that one house...
