My Simple Joys

Starting a blog is like attempting to de-clutter your junk drawer.  You see very clearly the end goal and what you want to accomplish, and once you get going it’s pretty smooth… but the initial get go is rough.

I’m not saying that what I want to share is the same as what’s in a junk drawer, there’s just so much that I want to say and don’t know how to put it into words that will adequately describe how I feel, am or want to put out there.

So I’ll start it out small and simple…

My name is Hannah Jane Tua’one (two-ah-oh-nay).  My last name is Tongan.  I’m not personally Tongan, but I’m married to the best one out there.  His name is Hailame (Hi-la-may), he’s also known as Hyrum.


Wonderful cheese plate in New Zealand!

Some of Hailame’s simple joys in life are, but are not limited to, his wife (obviously), buying hats (and storing them all over the house), listening to music 24/7 (not an exaggeration), racquetball, spending time with family, cooking Tongan food with his Dad and brothers, and being the favorite Uncle (I have a lot to say about this!)


Hiking Snow Canyon

My simple joys in life, in no particular order, are road trips with the hubby, sewing, learning about PCOS, trying new recipes (Thank you Pinterest), improving my Chaco tan line, Thrift Store shopping, running (needing to be better about this one), hiking, river rafting, camping, reading predictable romance novels, and watching Classic Musicals.


Chacos at Lees Ferry.. January 1st, 2018

We’ve been married for 3 years and 4 months.

A few of our simple marital joys are playing pickleball, playing cards before or after dinner, exploring Southern Utah and Northern Arizona, hosting family and friends at our little home, watching Netflix and Hulu (This is Us, Good Doctor, Hawaii Five-0, Madam Secretary… always looking for suggestions), finding good Yard Sales, and road trips.


Happy New Year from Us.

I’ll stop there for now…

Stay Tuned.

Love, HannahJane
