Impressions from my trip last week to Hawaii included balmy winds, the fragrant smell of tuberose wafting up from my lei, the excitement of watching land being creating via spurting lava into the ocean, and some coco-nutty cocktails. It was a trip to research the Art of Self-Care August trip to Hawaii (yes, I admit it, it was a vacation from chilly Reno too and some time with hubby).

One of the most inspiring moments was meeting Jeanne, the hotel owner of Hawaii Resort Retreats. More on that in a future blog post. For now, check out some of the awe-inspiring sights of Hawaii here (link).
