Kona

For the past few years we have managed to escape the dark, rainy, Alaskan winters with a tropical vacation. This year we went to Kona and honestly – I don’t know why we came home. Here is a peek…

We ate at the Kona Brewing Company almost every day for lunch. Best.pizza.ever.

Sunset from Mauna Kea. We stopped by the observatory and that is the ONLY time I have worn my jacket and leggings in Hawaii. Also – according to the guest book we were the only Americans there that night.

It is always so good to get away, relax a little, and gain a new perspective. Do you take a vacation to escape the winter?

Cheers! :)
