Most people have family vacations in the summer, but for me it was different. My family and I went to Oahu, Hawaii for Christmas! It was one of the most amazing vacations anybody could ask for. I was able to ride on an airplane for the first time, visit many beaches, do many weekend activities, and compare the price of living to where I 'm from, south Georgia/South Carolina.

That is absolutely crazy to me! Not only is the gas, food, and housing expensive, but so is the mail!
