Before I made my first trip to Hawaii, I asked my friends who had already visited for some advice.

As I begin writing this blog, a few happy tears are coming down my face. I KNOW how blessed I am.

Aloha from Aulani, the new Disney resort that recently opened at Ko Olina, Hawaii, on the island of Oahu. It’s been a long day, so this is going to be shorter than I had intended it to be.
