10 things I love about Maui...in random order

1. laying charlotte in the sand...nudey.

2. going on a real date with this guy

3. listening to charlotte talk to papa. our sweeties live 1500 miles from any grandparent.

4. the view outside our condo. seriously?

5. watching my family play in the sand

6. how the air smelled like these white flowers

7. going to a real luau! hula girls... singing...dancing...fire throwers...buffet!


8. the way eden's hair curled up in ringlets

9. hula pie. one of the most delicious desserts of my life.

macadamia nut ice cream piled high on a chocolate cookie crust, topped with fudge, whipped cream, and more macadamia nuts. as big as my head.

10. macadamia nut and pineapple everything. coffee, smoothies, syrup, pancakes, you name it. heavenly.

i am so grateful we were given the gift of this trip. it has been refreshing, relaxing, and too beautiful to describe.
