Welcome to my little space where I’m able to escape for a while and spend some me time reflecting on life. My life can get really crazy at times, especially dealing with issues like anxiety and depression, I really need this place to ground myself and share. I started this blog back in 2011 but haven’t been active in the last couple of years. Let me tell you…. the last couple of years have been CRAZY! I’ve been keeping a journal, but really missed my little site here.
Many of you have followed me for a while, but for those who are new here I just want to share a little bit about myself.
My name is Taira (obviously, hence the site name). I’ve been with my boyfriend, which I refer to as my husband, for 18 years. He is my partner in life and we both agree that marriage just isn’t something that we need. We’ve seen so many of our friends and family get divorced, that I think we just feel like…. “what we’re doing obviously works so the hell with it”. We love each other and we have 4 beautiful children (2 boys and 2 girls) and a gorgeous granddaughter.
I started this blog back in 2011 and have recently decided that I need to get back…. so I’m giving it a fresh start. I’ll be going through some old content and republishing it. I started off really bad as an amateur so I’m in the process of going through and seeing what is worthy to keep *wink*.
I’ve lived in Hawaii my whole life and can’t see myself anywhere else. It is my home and I get to wake up every morning to the sunrise hitting the mountains and the Pacific Ocean as my backdrop while driving to and from work. I couldn’t ask for a better way to start and end my day.
I work with special needs children and I’m now going back to school to receive my Masters in ABA. My job is challenging but so rewarding that I’m always eager to learn more.
I hope that you all enjoy yourself here! Thank you so much for stopping by.
