I’m a military brat, so I moved around. A lot. I was lucky enough to call the beautiful Hawaii my home twice. This summer, I went on vacations with my family and got to visit Hawaii again (and Puerto Rico). I hadn’t been there since the Spice Girls era and when Sailor Moon was on TV! The nostalgia was overwhelming and it was just as beautiful as I remembered.
Of course, In true Girl Gone Geek fashion, I brought along my crocheted Joker, made by Leesasaur, along for a #VillainVacation. He didn’t get in too much trouble, I think…
