Well folks, we made it! * Here we sit in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, ready for just over a week of family chill time here on Hawaii’s biggest island. I’m tucked away here enjoying the view from the deck of our best friends vacation home, and as usual, am feeling *so incredibly grateful for the good people in our lives . I am grateful for great friends that feel just like family, and even more grateful to have them here with us to share this incredible week.
Life is good as we wrap our second full day – complete with a visit to a most beautiful beach (seriously, this place is pinch-me-out-of-this-world), lunch on the water, and a few good sleeps under my belt. After wrapping an insane week at work back home just to get here, it feels crazy good to settle in to island time, which roughly translated means I’ve suddenly got what feels like all the time in the world here. The days start early and end early which means (what feels like) loads of time in the morning to enjoy a few hot cups of coffee, a lovely morning run, and to eat extremely well. Most of all though, is the time to * *just be. **
