Hello, everyone! We are in MAUI! I still can’t believe we’re here. It just feels so far from the winter of New York. We’re so, so happy and grateful to be here. Danny was so cute and on the plane as we got close, he leaned over and said, “Happy Baby Moon!” We certainly didn’t expect this trip and certainly didn’t expect another possible baby moon. But, I guess the timing really is perfect. 🙂 We’ll take it!
Our first day here was not what you’d expect. There is a guy that Danny works with distantly (he lives in another state) but somehow, he and Danny recently had some great conversations about marriage and love. This co-worker shared many of the things with his wife and it turns out she spent the next while reading our entire blog! (wow!) And since they were going to be in Maui as well for the company trip, they wanted to get together to pick our brains about life and marriage and love – and especially the idea of attachment. And so, we met for breakfast and one conversation led to another. We ended up spending the entire day with them. They shared all the things they’ve been doing for the last few years to try to develop something truly great, and we shared every bit that we could with them from our own experience. It really has been an amazing day. It’s always cool when blog connections turn into real life connections, especially when you get to hear another’s story of how they’ve come to understand love in a healthier light, and how that realization improves marriages and relationships.
Also, thanks to your suggestions, we also went to Ululani’s Hawaiian Shaved Ice! Whoa. That stuff is no joke. It really was the creamiest, softest, shaved ice ever. Though I haven’t had sugar in awhile and that was one crazy sugar rush, oh my.
Though my favorite thing to eat so far has just been macadamia nuts. They have them everywhere and I’m enjoying some of the dry roasted/sea salt variety as I type. Danny thinks they taste like shortbread. 🙂
