nickname derived from "Emily Pemaly"

 pronounced pehm-uh-loo.

Hello! My name is Emily Jo Lui.

Pemalou started as a nickname from my mom and has evolved into the definition (for me) of triumph and sensitivity.

My roots are firmly planted in Seattle, WA and my heart is wholly shared with a 6'5" Tongan man who I am lucky to call my forever husband. 

For anyone who is curious, check out the 10 songs that sum me up!  PEM
