Fringe Benefits

For those who live in the north or midwest, I'm sure you can understand my feeling that winter has had its fair share of calendar time and should move aside to let spring make its appearance. Where I live, we only had two days of sun in the entire month of January. 


While I've been doing my best to practice the trendy and clever Hygge lifestyle the Danish have perfected (aka lots of coffee wrapped up in all the blankets), the thing that seems to get me by the best is planning trips to places that are warm, tropical, and full of sunshine. Even if sometimes the trips are just dreamy ideas. Fortunately for me, I have a trip to Hawaii on the books in a couple months! I will be going to Kauai for one week with a few days spent in Oahu (first timer here, so any recommendations would be greatly appreciated)!

While I wish I was getting on the plane right now to head for the north shores of Oahu, imagining myself wearing all of these different items while sipping a Pina Colada and watching the surfers catch some waves will have to do for now.


  1. Wish I was doing that too! That sounds like it will be a fabulous trip! Love all these colorful picks!
