I Can’t Believe It

You guys. I know I was very nearly dragged here kicking and screaming. You remember how I dreaded moving to Hawai’i, right? I was really enjoying living in Connecticut and just wasn’t ready to move away. All I could really think about was that I hated being in a hot and humid climate. (I had some body concerns as well, since it’s always bathing suit season here.) But do you know what’s happened, now that I’ve lived here almost four months? I kind of sort of absolutely love it! Shhhh. Don’t tell anyone!

I’ve currently been thinking that I could possibly be the type of person who can find something awesome about any place I might live. I loved Connecticut and New England SOOO much but living on O’ahu is fantastic too. I’ve done so many cool things since moving here not too long ago. I go to the most beautiful beaches that were ever created. I can see majestic mountains carved from lava that flowed a bajillion years ago and I learned to snorkel to see fishes and turtles and other cool things. I have seen humpback whales swimming and breaching right by me!! How could I not love this place?!?!

It just took me a little while to see it. I’ll show you what I’ve seen and then maybe you’ll understand too:
