*This recap of 24 started to get too long so I split it into Part I: January through September and Part II October through December.
Ok, that was a bit of an exaggeration. We wanted to move to Hawaii but settled with
|the southern coast.|
|Hanalei from above.|
|The Na Pali Coast (with added Helicopter perspective).|
|Inside Kauai's originating volcano.|
|Hole in one!|

|Hanalei, the originator of rainbows.|
|Right after we moved in and gave the walls some paint.|
|Our kitchen contained a whopping 4 cabinets.|
Mr. W's family visited, I cooked my first Thanksgiving and we slept 5 people in our tiny 1 bedroom apartment.
|Traditional Italian Thanksgiving foods.|
Thanksgiving al fresco.
|My sister with The Puff.|
|Skyline as far as the eye could see.|
|Goetta + dippy egg every morning.|
|the 20-somethings are roaring.|
|playing El Cap-i-tan of the ship.|
I surprised Mr. Dub's for his birthday and took him to Yosemite. We stayed here and went snow shoeing in Yosemite National Park. It was the most gorgeous way to spend the weekend leading up to Christmas.
|I wear pink boots snowshoeing.|
|Lovely wooded walk.|
|Mr. W says Merry Christmas!|
Right before ringing in 2013, Mr. W had knee surgery. My goal has been to be a good wife and nurse him back to health. But I am human and I've lost my temper. We've had some very insightful and comical arguments. The comical-ness was exploited by the pain killers he was on. I've recapped some of our conversations with him and in his words he "doesn't " recall ever saying that". Further proof of the Lord's sense of humor.
|Mr. Dubs claiming the couch.|
I hope you're just as full of life as 24. I also wouldn't mind if you decided to take me
on another Hawaiian vacationon an entirely new adventure.
