Hang Loose….Honolulu work trip!

Don’t worry sweet baby!
Don’t you ever worry ’bout a thing.
Put them worries on the shelf ‘n’ learn to love yourself
Don’t be your own worst enemy.

Hang loose, hang loose
Let the ocean worry ’bout bein’ blue.
Hang loose, hang loose.
Go with the tide and I’ma take care of you.

Come with me sweet darlin’.
I got a seat ya ticket for the plane. 10665303_696269034592_3948575673374254678_nWe gonna fly to Waikiki,   10403591_695695733492_5093608330006180819_n10710524_695861506282_5380236290477644315_nAnd we’ll let the sun melt our cares away. 10342773_695939984012_4192581670073783281_n 10696369_696073321802_3316561140908480074_n

My next month include trips to Spokane, Chicago, Tacoma, Missoula, Milwaukee for Kiki’s wedding, Penticton, B.C., Idaho Falls, Boise and Colorado Springs! I’m hoping after my next trip to Fargo in November my traveling slows down a little!
