Being back is not so bad but the being away was INCREDIBLE......
the time with my husband was AMAZING......we woke up early every morning and in that time before sunrise would spend time together in our reading and journaling, hearing his thoughts and us talking together about what He was saying to us was the best part of the trip and the rest of the trip was incredible.....

We saw sunrises and sunsets that I pray will be burned into my memory....
We ate foods we'd never heard of.....well we'd maybe heard of but never imagined having the opportunity to try. Our most romantic meal was a bottle of wine and cheese and crackers in our gazebo gazing at the ocean with a slice of 'lillililli' pie....
We went to a Luau....a REAL LIVE LUAU!!!
We drank MaiTai's at every place we ate.....
We saw sites we'd only dreamed of seeing for ourselves....
We swam in water so blue you couldn't believe it.....we snorkeled with sea turtles and monk seals.....we almost got caught in a rip current...
We walked miles of sand and enjoyed the time just walking.....
We drove to beaches we'd never dreamed of finding....
We rode in a helicopter and saw the island in an amazing way.....
It was a vacation we will always remember....and we are grateful.......
oh and the photo...Tunnels Beach where we actually snorkeled with sea turtles!!

Well, that simply sounds amazing. We all need those moments where worries and time stops and we can be at peace with life, let our muscles relax and be with the one we love...I too hope to share those moments with my husband one day...especially the beginning of this post. Glad you had a marvelous time, I pray life is gentle and kind as you re-adjust from vacation.

I AM SO GLAD YOU HAD SUCH A GREAT TIME! I thought about you every day and HE told me you were having a blast!!! It sounds like a dream come true. I've been to Hawaii twice but didn't do half the things you did! (hmmm i think it had something to do with the mai tais!)
