Heart in Hawaii – for work and for recharge:
Hawaii is one of the most inspirational and invigorating places on the planet. For 8 days one year, my 4-year-old son and I bonded, played (and did a little work) together on “Valley Isle,” Maui. Together we learned to surf on boards and bodies, snorkel with turtles, swim through waterfalls, and enjoy some amazing island people and culture. August was a great time of year because things were less expensive than the wintertime when Mainlanders are escaping winter. We rented a car for $150 for the entire eight days.
With Lava as the Heart of Hawaii, Heart Sticker tested three Heart in Hawaii designs.
1. The classic—a white island chain with a black border.
2. The green—a chain of green islands with white separating them.
3. The ocean—a chain of green islands surrounded by ocean blue water. (My favorite.)
The Winner: The Classic

The Classic. It was preferred many times over to the others. The simple design was easy to recognize, both the chain and the heart really popped off the sticker. My favorite, the ocean, was too much color and the lack of separation between the islands made the island chain a challenge to spot. So the classic it is.
The people were so gracious and friendly. “Mahalo, thank you, thank you” was instantly the reaction when I presented a Heart in Hawaii sticker gift to many of the locals. They could not believe a stranger came with such a meaningful gift, not to mention a second sticker for them to share with their BFF. In return, I recharged my spirit both personally and professionally. I gained an understanding of the meaning and more importantly the feeling of “Aloha.”
Are you looking for a place to apply your sticker? Many folks place them on Hydro Flask water bottles, Yeti coolers & tumblers, and Yakima and Thule racks.
Follow your heart, it will lead you home.
