Happy Labor Day

Happy Labor Day Holiday Everyone! I am working on all of my Hawaii pages but yet to get half-way through because it seems like I am so busy these days (which I am clearly not). Last week I had an interview with a company that I am very impressed with. Isn't it great when you find a company that you would enjoy working for day in and day out? I was lucky to have landed that interview. I will be even luckier to hear good news.

Friday was also MY BIRTHDAY! I turned the big 2-4. We spent the day in downtown Denver shopping (mostly browsing) the stores on the 16th St. Mall. I fell in love with Breaking the Mold Candle Company and decided my b-day present was going to be a locally made vanilla-Tahitian candle. Isn't it gorgeous?!? If you are ever in Denver you must visit this place; the candles are delicious! We finished up my day at the Cheesecake Factory where I had a yummy lunch and Chocolate Godiva Cheesecake.

Now, back to the programming. During our Christmas Island-Hopping Vacation last year, we visited Volcano National Park and was amazed with the sheer size of the volcano's and lava fields. It was by far one of my favorite places we visited on the Big Island. On our first day, it rained (of course), but we decided to hike anyway. Well, as this first photo will show you, I was not happy. The hike was abut 2 miles across lava fields in the rain. If the sun had been shining I would have enjoyed it but, alas, only rain.

The second page shows the lava fields that you drive through on the way down Crater Rim Drive; it was a magnificent site. At the end of the drive you can hike the half-mile or so to where the latest lava flow covered the road. You can see the thickness of the lava in the photo of Brian. That road sign was almost completely covered. The third photo shows the volcanic smoke coming from the Halema'uma'u Crater. Kilauea is a live-active volcano so you are able to see the eruptions and lava flows. Check out the webcams in the park to see the action.

Here is the complete DPS. I love how this turned out. I don't do many DPS's...but I should.

Happy belated birthday! It sounds like you had a blast. Love your vanilla candle. Bet it smells tasty. Awesome pages! Love the way your wavy journaling mimics the lava flows. Gorgeous! :O)

This is a wonderful layout! Is it 12 x 12? If so....how did you get a photo of them both together. I find that so hard to do, LOL.

Happy birthday, my daugher just turned the big 2-4 Aug. 23rd. I joked with her that next year we know what theme we are going with...since at 25 she will be a official "antique" {{{wink}}}

Vanilla, Yummmmm...one of my favorite scents. The best thing about it is you can burn it with other scents, too, and it softens yet enhances the other scent (hmmm, not sure how it can do both, but it does, LOL).

And, lastly, thank you for visiting my blog and leaving a comment :)
