15 years ago, I was in Hawaii for an entire MONTH.
My son was about to enter the picture, and I had an inkling I wouldn’t be back to Maui for a good long time afterwards.
My gut feeling turned out to be right. Motherhood became my ultimate hobby, and then hard times hit. So all my son’s life, he’s asked me questions like…
“Is it hot all the time in Hawaii? Are there sharks in the water? Does it rain there?”
Well… after 15 LONG years, my son is going to get all his questions answered in person. Because we are fullfilling a massive bucket list and going back to Maui… this week! AAAHH!!
We aren’t going for a month, because 16 days is expensive enough these days! And a good trial to see if my son will be thrilled or bored out of his palm tree.
We are staying on the North Shore where beach meets condo head on. One of our places is ground level and steps from the ocean. My boy is gonna have his own private snorkle bay 24/7 while I sip my Kona coffee. Sweet!
I even heard there’s a local flea market near by… Maui junk? Imagine….
I travelled a fair bit with my parents. My first adventure to Hawaii is rather hard to forget. I remember slathering myself with baby oil on very bluish white Canadian legs, and laying on the lanai for a good long while. For the remainder of the trip… my legs wouldn’t bend.
Once I reached adult hood, I knew I had to go back and experience it without fried legs. I’ve been there several times over the years because it’s a quick 5 hour flight from Canada.
I’ve done a few pretty cool working trips through blogging. What a joy that has brought! But I’ve yet to actually travel for a true family vacation. So needless to say, we are pretty pumped! This one’s all about us.
So I did a little shopping and picked up a few new tanks and shorts for both of us. It’s hard to make out, but that last shirt with the denim top has a black house underneath it. It’s very cute! (everything above was found at Winners, Target, Target, Winners in Canada)
My kitties will have a live in house sitter. Grace is taking over the place and is going to spoil them rotten, just the way I like it.
And I even got a sassy new cut and root touchup. Thank-you Jolene Vogt Hair Stylist!!
I do have 2 new posts scheduled to go out, so stay tuned for new projects! But am unsure on how much I’ll be posting otherwise. Will feel it out. Kinda looking forward to some downtime off electronics and just enjoy what the tropics have to offer.
I cannot wait to take you to Maui with us! Until then…
Maui junk, we are on our way! Aloha!
(did I really say that?! #surreal)
