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 were 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
