The Move
Well such is life in the Navy, staying one place too long is not natural. We have been in Virginia for 5 years, and now it is time to move on. We are moving to Hawaii! A couple of interesting thoughts for this move:
1. Our pack out date is EXACTLY 10 yrs from our last pack out day for Hawaii!
2. We are shipping our Honda Civic....guess what kind of car we shipped last time?? You got it a Honda Civic (and we actually have had different cars than a Honda Civic in that 10 yrs).
So here we are full circle. We moved to Hawaii a week after we got married, 1 car, no furniture, no money, nothing, but us! This time we move with a house full of furniture, 2 kids, a dog, a cat, a car, and for me 2 small businesses.

So What's the Plan Stan?
Unfortunately we cannot ship candles to Hawaii (the container in the summer time will melt the wax). So I am trying to sell off my inventory as much as I can, so I can feasibly ship the rest by air. I welcome you to take advantage of the sale.

Save $2 when you Buy $10 worth of items
Save $5 when you Buy $15 worth of items
Save $10 when you buy $25 worth of items
This sale will continue until inventory is low enough to ship.

Paradise Means Candlemaking and Cardmaking Full Time
I am very thankful to say that I get to quit my day job when we get to Hawaii, and will be making candles and cards full time after we get settled. This is a dream of mine and I have a few years to get it off the ground.
Plus having a home business gives me an opprotunity to get my family settled in and really breathe in and enjoy life! Or maybe breathe in and enjoy the smell of a plumeria soy candle?!? LOL!
