Thanks for the memories

Humans have very strong scent memory. Tell us about a smell that transports you

The smell of tuberose and plumeria transports me back to the Hawaiian islands and the moment we stepped off the plane and were greeted by our sponsor with leis at the airport. It was our first big move and we landed in Hawaii of all places. Those were the days. Such fond memories of golfing almost everyday, going to the Puka (it was a hole in the wall bar on base), the sun, sand, and surf. Ahhhhhhh…..🌸🌴

It wasn’t such a bad place to hang your hat for the first couple years of marriage. We enjoyed our time while we were there and I would have to say it was the best place to have been pregnant with my son. Always warm, never had to wear bulky cold weather clothes and fresh food all the time. Totally worth it. It isn’t every day your child can say they were born in Hawaii unless they are currently living in Hawaii and when people ask where we’ve lived they are usually stunned to hear that we left. I would have loved to stay and I’d go back in a heartbeat, but sometimes jobs pull you away from where we love to be.

So for me, the smell of tuberose and plumeria take me back to a wonderful time in my life. A carefree, 20something life with little to worry about and a ton of fun times to remember.
