It’s taken a lot for to come here and actually write this post, but I feel like with a fresh, new year, it’s time!
Okay. Here’s the deal. We aren’t head over heels for Hawaii anymore. And if you’re one of my readers who is currently sitting in the midst of a snow storm, hear me out.
Hawaii is gorgeous and offers no shortage of beautiful scenery and magical sunsets, but…
Hawaii is expensive. Hawaii is far. Hawaii offers no seasons.
Thankfully for us, 2015 is the year we figure out where we might be heading next (and hopefully soon!).
Realistically, Hawaii has given us more than we could have ever dreamed of and are we happy that we have had the opportunity to live here? Absolutely. But we are ready to say ALOHA and MAHALO. I didn’t even know it was possible, but we have stopped going to the beach because…wait for it…WE ARE SICK OF IT.
I know, I know, it sounds ridiculous, but we are season people, not hot-all-year-long people.
|We miss this!|
I’m not sure if it was the holidays, missing weddings of friends or the onset of football season in 90 degree weather, but we really started to feel the emptiness that this island currently offers us late last summer. We are definitely trying to make the best of it by discovering new places and enjoying time with our friends here, but we are anxious and experiencing what local people tell us is island fever.
So tell me, friends, have you ever experienced this feeling? How do you move past it, or does it not stop until you’ve actually moved?
