We grew up in Minnesota. Joe is part Hawaiian and his family is originally from Waipio Valley. We have been together for 20 years. He is the love of my life. Between us we have 5 children, 3 grandchildren and 1 great grandchild. We are both very active. We bike, swim, hike, camp and like to travel. We have 5 acres that holds 3 homes that Joe built. We also have a cabin in Waipio Valley on the land where Joe's mother was raised. I am a very blessed lady!!!!!
