“So where are you from?” I am often asked, given that I live in Hawaii, a state where the tourists outnumber the residents, and – let's face it – I kind of look like a tourist. I always smile and answer, “Here, born and raised,” and then, with amusement, watch the person's eyes widen as he or she tries to process how someone with blonde hair and blue eyes can call herself “local.” And yet, that is just what I am.

As we were heading down to the North Shore the other day, I snapped this photo of the Wai'anae Range and the pineapple fields at the feet of the mountains. When the sky is clear, the mountains resemble a recumbent pregnant woman. This view is a familiar one to me, but it always brings back childhood memories of riding through pineapple and sugar cane fields with my grandpa, and it always makes me realize how lucky I am to live here. This layout documents what it means to grow up local.

I pulled together colors, patterns, and accents that remind me of home. The green, yellow, and blue are the colors of land, sea, and sky, and the layout itself reflects that geography, with the cloud washi tape from KI Memories at the top and the green floral Freckled Fawn tape at bottom of the layout. I added a few pop dots under some arrows from Pebbles, and oriented them in the direction of Hawaii, which can be found on the section of map paper from Heidi Swapp. The “Seen & Noted” notecard tucked behind the photo features additional journaling, noting some of the images that are embedded in my mind when I think of this place I call home.

Thanks for looking!
