My name is Charlee (or Charlie or Charlotte). I started my blog Attempting Aloha in 2010 when we purchased our home here in Hawaii. It started as just a craft blog, but with our home renovations, I learned a lot about woodworking and fell in love with power tools and building things.
We moved to Italy for a few years in 2013, and my focused switched to learning a new language and helping my kids as they trudged through public Italian school. I decided to stop blogging during that time.
Now we’re home in Hawaii again, and I’m ready for the blogging world once more! I decided to start a fresh blog and chronicle some of our traveling adventures we were able to do during our time in Europe.
I hope you enjoy learning about new places, new crafts, and maybe even a thing or two about woodworking.
