MY MY What An Adventure I am On!

Well first of all let me say this is my first ever blog hop! I am not an author but I am a HuGE book-aholic! I think the topic of this blog hop is great for me because I live in Hawaii!! So ALOHA to you all!

(All photos are mine and from the great Island of Oahu)
Sweet places to read, right! The sun and the romance that you can enjoy!

The summer nights under the sunset and palm trees!! They might ignite your passion!

SO lets start the night out, or should I say the blog hop! I can’t WOW you all with my amazing book coming out like a lot of the other author's on the blog are doing but I can WOW you with a little of me! I am a mom of 4 beautiful kids ( I will post a picture for you all) and married to a U.S Coast Guard member for 7 years and that's the same amount of time he has been enlisted! Life is crazy fun and crazy busy! Our summers are nuts and spent at the beach most the time, since its summer/beach day all year around! SO here is a taste of it and of ME!

(My girls are up top and my two boys are on the bottom)

Its fun to be all over the place and have enjoyed many different states! What I have not liked is making good friends and then having to say good-bye, that’s when the summers are NO fun. But I have always had amazing memories with them all and keep in touch with lots of them still! We loved doing crazy things like midnight Twilight showing, Luau’s, going out on the town and being nuts! I have found amazing girls who love what I do, BOOKS as well as MUSIC oh and Movies (that we love to quote most of the time)! And they love them, as much as I do too, so that's a good thing because it makes me feel a little less nuts! We are always chatting about everything really, it is so cool to have amazing friends like I do!:)

(Lu'au fun)

Friends to be made, even if I live in Hawaii and they live in all different places!

Just one of the fun places to sit and read!

I now spend a lot of my free time, outside of my family and being a full time student, running a book page on face book and that well has been amazing! I have befriended lots of amazing ladies and author's that have just started out or are all ready in the big shoots and its great! And I keep adding new friends and pages to that list every day, I think no matter what state or country I visit or move to I will have a book buddy for sure and that's just something I cant even put into words! :) It's amazing what the world wide web has grown into in the short few years its been really BIG!:)

Oh how the Hawaii summers are amazing!!

Since starting the book page, I have to say I have enjoyed a whole lot of new adventures and fallen in love with many men, I know, I know not very lady like! But who cares, just to book fall in love with a man that’s strong, rugged, unstoppable but still looks at you like it’s the first time he has seen you, or fights creatures from many different worlds and comes and kisses you like your hero he is, its WOW!!??!! It’s an amazing thing to be a part of! I have read maybe about 70-80 books, not a lot to some people but for me it’s a lot! I think I have only run across maybe 3 books I have not enjoyed so I think that’s an amazing thing. I try to read whenever I can and love to read for reviews as well, but still love to read for ME too! I have supported so many new authors' over on my book page and well, I am SO happy doing it. I think one day I would love to become one of these amazing author's agent, well lets say that’s what I am gunning for!! LOL

So make sure to stay Aloha and keep reading and enjoying your sultry summer nights because I know I will it’s a great world to venture into every now and again!:)

Hey Bella, Came over from PBC. Love your page. I just started a blog page and I still have to figure out how to put those posts down the sides of the page like you did. lol Love the pics. That must be amazing to live on a tropical island. I don't see a place to post my email privately. I'll try putting my url in but I'm concerned it won't work.
