I Would Live In Hawaii


I have always wanted to visit and live in Hawaii but I have still never been there. When your Dad and I got engaged I begged him to have a destination wedding in Hawaii. I begged and begged and for a 3 days he agreed. I looked at wedding planners, even picked a possible place for the ceremony. But your Dad chickened out, he told me he did not want to. I was pretty upset. We agreed we would renew our vows there on our 10 year anniversary (only 3 more years to go… get ready kids).

Before that I had another dream of living in Hawaii that almost came true. When I was looking at colleges with good education programs the one I went to had a great connection with the Hawaii Department of Education and they really recruited teachers from our program. I was totally set on graduating and going to live there. As I have told you before I decided my senior year not to become a teacher. I did have friends who did go and teach in Hawaii and I was jealous.

Before that I thought about applying to the University of Hawaii but Grandma told me that if I went there I could not come home between semesters because it was so expensive. That concerned me and I thought it might not be the best idea. I knew I only wanted to go there for location so I came to my senses real quick that it was not the best thing to do.

I do hope that some day (if not in 3 years) I will get to go to Hawaii but I am starting to worry that it might be a HUGE letdown because it is some place I have wanted to go for at least 20 years of my life. Fingers crossed.

If you could live anywhere in the world where would you live?

    Hawaii is my second choice for places to live. It’s so beautiful there! I hope you get to visit there with your family one day.

  2. I’ve never been to Hawaii, but all my friends whose husbands were stationed there say that Hawaii is a nice place to visit, but not to live. I have a friend who is leaving Hawaii to go back to Washington (state), and she can’t wait! She hates Hawaii and loves WA. That probably sounds strange that someone would prefer WA over HI, but WA was awesome! I hope we can move back there again in a couple years.
