One of my fondest memories is having riverside picnics as a little girl with my family. On a hot summer days, we would walk leisurely to a river near my grandmother's home with swimsuits, food and blankets in hand.

I also got married here and try to come back as often as we can. My little girl loves the ocean and soaks up the sun and salt like her mom. Maui is one of ...

I grew up in Hawaii where it is sunny year round. Christmas time is marked not by changing leaves, but rather by festive decorations in front yards and special tents that pop-up throughout the islands selling Christmas trees.
