You know how it feels to cross something big off your bucket list?
My bucket list got a little lighter last month as I set foot on the beautiful island of Oahu! I can’t remember a time in my life when I didn’t want to visit Hawaii. But for a New Yorker like me, Hawaii is soooo far away, and having the time (and money!) for such a big vacation always seemed beyond reach. And yet my family and I recently spent eight glorious days there! The weather, the ocean, the foods, the views, and the unforgettable memorial at Pearl Harbor—it was even more magical than I’d dreamed.
