a little more Hawaii

This trip is a little more "business" than it is pleasure, so I haven't had too much time to take my usual tons of photographs, but next visit (and every subsequent visit) will be full of lovely photos, so have no fear. So, in lieu of a million pictures, I thought I would include some I've snapped via my blackberry over the past couple of days. If you follow me on Twitter or are friends with me on Facebook you may have already seen a few of these.

I've really been enjoying my time here. There's a lot going on in my little world right now (all really great stuff), so it's been neat to really have some quiet time to reflect on all of this positivity. I miss Hank terribly, but we will be returning very soon and I'm excited to be here with him next time. Hank's mom is a true foodie, so we've been enjoying amazing dinners each night. Seriously to die for! During the day we usually grab a quick lunch while we're out running errands, but we always find time to have a nice, leisurely dinner at the end of the day. I've been sleeping about 10-11 hours every night too- how insane is that?! My body is so happy and relaxed, and I feel so peaceful.

We come back to Arizona on Wednesday, and then I have until Monday to enjoy the rest of my spring break. Are any of you on spring break right now? What have you been up to?

I am excited to get home, but at the same time I am going to be super sad to leave. Bittersweet.

Until next time, xoxo
