Summer Fun

What a wonderfully refreshing three weeks our family has spent on the island of Oahu! Each year we join Xango leaders for an amazing event called the Elevation Retreat. The event is a time to relax, unwind and have fun together. We also hear from our Xango corporate team about future plans, new releases, and share with other leaders' successes and business strategies.The time went so fast and before long we were saying goodbye to many of our friends. Many of us have made this an extended time to enjoy with our families as well, thats what we have done. Each year we invite family and friends to join us as we take in the islands many delights.

Turtle Bay on the north shore of the island of Oahu is one of our favorite spots...we have enjoyed our stay immensely! We indulged in luau's and swanky beachside eateries while our days were spent kayaaking, swimming, sunning, snorkeling and more. A high point of this trip was the day we swam with dolphins and sea turtles in the wild...or perhaps it was the day we were lowered down in cages while sharks, lured by bait circled all around the cage!

While here I even found time to stamp a bit. I brought with me some cute island stamps I purchased the last time I visited, my Peerless watercolors and H2O brush. I enjoyed making some quick and easy postcards to send off to friends.

We spent our last days shopping for trinkets in town then snorkeling on our own protected sandy beach just paces from the was a perfectly wonderful way to end our stay.
