Our love for Hawaii began long ago when we came here for our honeymoon in 1987. We concluded then that we would move here, and we made that dream a reality nearly five years ago. Taking action to follow a dream is life affirming in so many ways. The truth is, though, that reaching a dream destination is not the end. Life continues to unfold. While we believed with all our heart that Hawaii would remain our forever home, the pull of family back in Michigan tugged on our hearts and we are returning.
Reflecting on the journey that we’ve taken over these past five years, our love for Hawaii is stronger than ever. Hawaii held us in a loving embrace, showing us beauty that we could have never experienced on vacations. A big part of the experience is the people that we’ve met. We’ve been humbled and honored by these experiences and we leave here with the determination to spread Aloha to everyone we encounter.
There have been inquiries from people that would like to purchase the magazine. Our goal is to find someone that has a passion for living healthy and sustainable that will continue to grow this community resource. In the meantime, we’ll work to produce it from Michigan with the continued support of our advertisers and local distributors.
This month’s edition has many tips and suggestions for the holidays, from recipes to recommendations on healthy partying, tips on incorporating Blue Zones Power 9, creative gift suggestions for kids and more. Check out what’s new with Girlfriends and Julia Estrella in our News Briefs section and learn the problems with silver amalgam fillings and how to keep knees healthy in this month’s Health Briefs.
Please enjoy these and the rest of the December edition.
With our heartfelt gratitude,
Beckie and Bud Kowalski, Publishers
