2014 Lana’i Calendar Giveaway


lanai hawaii desk calendar

We’re giving away this 2014 desk calendar featuring paintings of Lana’i by Mike Carroll. These popular desk calendars always sell out year over year.

I’ve put this calendar on my personal Christmas wish list for several years. The problem I have with these calendars is that the scenes are so pretty, I have trouble discarding them in the recycle bin. In fact, I have both 2012 and 2013 calendars on my desk at the moment.

If you’d like to enter to win, just comment below on this blog post (not on Facebook) and tell us if Hawaii is in your 2014 plans. Enter your comment by Friday, December 13, 2013. The randomly selected winner will be notified by email so make sure you enter your email address accurately.

    1. Sheila Beal says:

      Haha, Donna, you sound like you got hooked on Hawaii just like us. We first visited Maui and Oahu in 2003 for what we thought was going to be our one and only trip to Hawaii. Shortly after we returned, we started planning a trip to Kauai. Then, after that, a trip to Hawaii, the Big Island. In 2006, we started this blog, Go Visit Hawaii, ….and the rest is history. 🙂

  91. Hawaii, my dreams. I live in very sad place where is too much rain and snow. When I wake up I must look at mist, maybe it is romantic, but I would like to be in Maui….

  92. This sounds so tempting especially with the crazy snow and ice we have been getting everywhere!

  93. Unfortunately, our one and only time in Hawaii was in 2007 when we spent a week on the Big Island, and spent the second week aboard the Pride of America. Since we have a daughter who will be a Sr at Rider University in the Fall of 2014, Hawaii will not be in our travel plans for several years.

    1. Sorry I didn’t finish my comment. I wanted to add that I wish that NJ wasn’t so far from Hawaii. It’s heaven on earth, and looking at any pictures of Hawaii brings back such wonderful memories. I’d love to own this beautiful calendar!
