As far back as I can remember, I’ve always wanted to go to Hawai’i. I hate the cold, and I can’t remember ever really liking it, even as a child.  Why oh why was I born in Michigan? Even more, why did I stay for so long?  After the rough 2014 our family had and the fresh start we all feel we need at this point in our lives, we’ve decided that we are going to move to Hawai’i.

Fresh start in Hawai’i

After a good amount of debating and discussing, we know that we all need a fresh start so we are packing up and moving to Hawai'i.

We’ll all get a fresh start from everything.

I’ll get to live in a climate in which I’ll be super happy. Where it is always warm but not too warm, and I’ll still be with my family. Brandon gets to expand his business to work as remote support where he can have anyone as a client.  Thaddeus gets a fresh start from being known as the trouble child in school. He also gets to get away from the other students who help influence his bad behavior.  Xavier, well, he doesn’t need a fresh start per say, but he’ll get to start school in Hawai’i and have so many advantages and memories any child should get to experience.

Instead of waiting to move at the end of the year; we want to make sure that we have enough money saved up to help with the move and to make sure we will be able to survive the move since there is a decent price difference in living in Hawai’i over the mainland. We were going to wait until after Thaddeus finished 5th grade, so he didn’t miss any school, but the schools in Hawai’i are not as advanced as they are here and he won’t miss that much school since we’ll move during a semester break.

Over the next nine months, I’ll be posting all about Hawai’i and the island we will be moving to along with all the different things you need to know before moving there.  Yes, we have lots and lots of research to do before the move, so we are ready when we arrive.

If you had the opportunity to move anywhere in the world where would you choose to live?
