The Island Life

My children and I have recently returned from vacationing in Kauai, and I have to say I am in love. In love with the quiet and laid back life an island has to offer. I find myself looking back at our photos and day dreaming of laying out and relaxing in the sun. My children splashing in the water and the safety of exploring the jungle in our back yard. We stayed in a beautiful 2 1/2 bedroom condo in the south shore of the island called “Poipu”. We ate from local fruit stands, and tested out the old town of Koloa’s pizza. Snorkeling with sea turtles, and horseback riding around the beautiful edges of the world. Being back home keeps me aching to return, so today to satisfy a sweet island craving I made myself an amazing and satisfying smoothie. Now that I am home, its definitely time to get back into the gym!
