Welcome to:

Aloha With Love!

Aloha! I’m Amy and this Hawaii blog is all about Hawaii travel, living in Hawaii, and things to do in Hawaii from a local point of view. Join me as I travel, hike, eat, explore, cook, garden, and survive my way on these beautiful islands I’m lucky enough to call home.

My family has lived in Hawaii since the pineapple plantation days and we’ve carved out a unique way of life here. In the Aloha With Love blog, you’ll find my favorite eateries, beaches, snorkeling spots, attractions, hikes, home recipes, and even backyard DIY projects (aquaponics anyone?).

I’m so excited to share my life in Hawaii with you! I hope this blog gives you some fantastic ideas on life in Hawaii and inspires you to take advantage of wherever home is for you.

Aloha with love, Amy

Here’s what I’ve been up to recently here in the islands.

Living In Hawaii: Home & Garden


I enjoy growing my own food right in my own yard. Watching vegetables grow, feeding my fish, and making sure the ecosystems I’ve built are performing excellently so I can harvest a good crop just has no comparison. If you live in Hawaii and are interested in DIY projects such as aquaponics, hydroponics, aquaculture, and solar energy, check out my Home & Garden posts to learn more.


Farm To Table

Hawaii has such a fantastic climate for growing your own food and what better way to do it than with aquaponics?
