Pineapple Love

Image
I am an island girl, born and raised in Hawaii on the island of Oahu.  And pineapple used to be big business here in Hawaii.  My immigrant family all worked for Dole Plantation back in the day- planting, growing and harvesting pineapple.  Back in the 1980's when I was a child, there used to be this huge pineapple water tower in Honolulu at the Dole Cannery.  They took that pineapple water tower down and the Dole Cannery building is now a movie theater!  My how times have changed.  But our love for pineapples here never ends.

Lately I've been seeing a quote everywhere about pineapples:

"Be like a pineapple, stand tall, wear a crown, and be sweet on the inside."

So this is me paying homage to a fun quote.  Let's all be Pineapples!  Or at least enjoy them.


Thanks for reading! XO, Yolanda







For I know the plans I have for you

It's been a little over a year since my last post and boy did a lot happen over that year.  First, I got pregnant, after 2 years of trying and giving up, it happened.  Hence why my blog post title is the verse from Jeremiah 29:11.  I made some new plans and got diverted haha.

It was a high risk pregnancy so I took it easy and had many doctor's appointments plus I had to take care of my 4 year old son who is pretty active and energetic.  I was nervous with this pregnancy, so scared for the outcome, hoping for the best but not knowing, in the end it all turned out fine.  My sweet baby girl is now almost 6 months old!  How time flies when you have children.

Now with 2 kids to run after, I scaled back on my Etsy shop which makes me a bit sad.  There is so much I want to do, so many ideas, and so little time.  But I have faith it will all work out.  So my shop is up and running but with less items listed than before.  I'll be adding more things when I have some time to do them…
