bird of paradise

If you follow Burnett’s Boards on twitter then you’ve probably seen many tweets that involve the words ‘aloha’ and ‘y’all’ in the same 140 characters. That’s not a coincidence. I am a Texas girl living in Hawaii! I fly to Houston a couple times a year to visit my parents and I always fly into […]
