People you may not have known are Hawaiian

In this first edition of "People you may not have known are Hawaiian" (how's that for a long title?), I'm featuring Jack Johnson! If you're a fan of his, then you may have known this already. If you're not a fan, what's wrong with you?? Just probably don't know much about him.

Here are some quick facts: He's from the North Shore in Oahu (my FAVORITE area), started surfing at age 5, but stopped after a bad surfing incident that left him with more than 150 stitches. He is an environmentalist, is involved in the local community, and he has my all-time favorite name for a boy (yup, that's a fact!)

If you ever feel like going to the beach but can't get there, his music will take you on a mental vacation!

Here's the video for "You and Your Heart" - from his new CD To The Sea.

You can get more info on Jack Johnson and his music at his website:
(when I first looked him up, I put in and got a resort developer - maybe I should become a fan of them too!)

I'm a wife and mama. I used to have a corporate job. I appreciate good food, a good read, and a nice bath. I currently call Hawaii "home," but I've lived in lots of other places. This blog is about things I like and notice. Kinda random, like me!
