Originally from the mainland, relocated to the islands, and now it’s time for this beautiful ballerina turned hula dancer to head back home. I have been so blessed to have lived, traveled and trained with you dear one! As we say in the islands, it’s not good-bye but a hui hou, until we meet again :)k1 k2 k2a k3 k4 k5 k6 k7 k8

Happy Mother’s Day

Mother – One person who does the work of twenty. For free.

I know you probably think youre mom is the best, but let me tell you, MY mother really is 😉 My mom raised three kids, out of a suitcase, on airplanes, in public bathrooms, in hotels, motels, unfamiliar homes. Not only was she our mother but she was also our teacher, dance captain, main disciplinarian whilst dad was traveling and our only constant in an otherwise inconsistent (continent) life. She’s raised more children that are not her blood and loved countless others who would sometimes give her more head aches than one should ever have to bear. She is a woman of faith and integrity. Full of love and grace. Beauty and poise, and not to mention the most stylish missionary from Savai’i that you will ever meet 😉

I love you mom, thank you for all that you do, have done and continue to do. You are the best gift I never knew I needed :-)

Not only is she gorgeous, but she’s also a hilarious, down-to-earth girl ;). I’m so proud of the woman you have grown up to be! I know you will accomplish whatever you set your mind to, and I’m already    s t o k e d to hear all your amazing stories after high school :-) You will do great things.

Love you Hero!
